BUCKHANNON — Have you wanted to get fresh produce from the Buckhannon-Upshur Farmer’s Market but have been unable to make it? Well, then this Friday is your lucky day!
You can now go to https://www.facebook.com/BuckhannonUpshurFarmersMarket/shop/ and place a pre-order for pick-up beginning at 5 p.m. at Friday’s market. All you must do is follow the link to the Facebook shop, add whatever you would like to your cart (while ignoring shipping information) and pick up your order at Jawbone Park during Festival Fridays, between 5 and 8 p.m.
Pre-ordering will be cut off on Thursday at 7 p.m. or before, depending on quantities.
If you miss it this week, don’t worry—Create Buckhannon plans to offer this option weekly! There will still be plenty of product at the market if you choose to purchase from local growers on-site.
More products will be available in the upcoming weeks as local farmers harvest their gardens. Please be patient with the system as they work through the kinks of this volunteer-led pilot program between the Buckhannon-Upshur Farmer’s Market and Create Buckhannon. Members are hopeful that this collaboration will help to get more local food into the homes of Upshur County.
