At the Markets

We are well into the summer with an awesome variety of southern-state and local produce at our roadside stands! Here’s a list of current local produce at our roadside stands that are open every day:

Hot and sweet banana peppers will be available later this week. They plan to pick them on Wednesday!

Here are some new things popping up from the farm that are starting to become available or WILL become available this week at our once-a-week farmers market!

  • Hot and Sweet Banana Peppers (picking Wednesday to have available later this week)
  • Rainbow Carrots
  • Bell Peppers
  • New Potatoes
  • Romas

Wondering why some of our local items haven’t hit the stands yet? That’s because many of our items become too wilted being at the stands on these hot, sunny days, such as our carrots, rhubarbs, beets, and others. We are also waiting on more of an abundance of our items. Once our greenhouses, fields, and raised beds begin producing enough local produce, we will offer them both at the farmers markets and our roadside stands! Stay updated on what’s up and coming locally at our stands. There’s certainly more to come!

At the Farm

We are so excited to pick these banana peppers that are LOVING this hot weather! Just another addition of our delicious homegrown produce coming later this week.

Summer school kiddos from Rock Cave Elementary school stopped by to look into Green Acres Farms WV and get some fresh produce!
