Does the market have stipulations on items being local? Absolutely. All the food brought to the West End Farmers Market from a 2.5 hour driving radius, or approximately 150 miles. There are a few artists who sometimes come from as far away as Charlottesville, Virginia. Only two artists offer items from South America and the Far East - and only because the goods are considered fair trade (an organized social movement and market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries make better trading conditions and promote sustainability). They are our only exceptions to the rule. All of the farmers at the West End Farmers Market grow their own vegetables and fruits.
