The Wild Ramp is Expanding!

The Wild Ramp is a year-round community-supported farmers’ market that provides a retail outlet for over 120 local farmers and food producers. As the Wild Ramp moves to Central City the opportunity to do more requires the Wild Ramp to hire two new staff members to ensure success.  The Wild Ramp has big plans for the West End location. Producers will have access to more cold storage and retail space. The Wild Ramp Farmers and Cabell County Tailgate Farmers’ Market Association will partner in order to increase sales of local food into schools and restaurants.  The Wild Ramp uses an average of 500 hours of volunteer labor per month to maintain the market.
