New foods

Did you know that the Wild Ramp is asking shoppers to fill out a survey requesting interest in getting locally made flour and baking mixes? There are several mills located well within our 250 mile zone (one in Monroe County and one near Lexington) that produce flour but interest is being determined before an arrangement is finalized.

Remember, the Wild Ramp Market is a seasonal and local market. This means that what the Producers have ready for the market at any given time needs to be enjoyed while it is available. If you really like something and you are a Friend of the Market, you can request a larger quantity to be set aside for you to pick up. That way you can preserve it to enjoy it out of season as well.

    You guys rock! 🙂

    Seeing what you’ve done down there in WV always inspires me, and is a great model for other aspiring Markets to us!

      Perhaps one of the reasons we could do it is because we are a small farm state…the mountains restrict the amount of acreage that can be farmed so most farming practices here are “old style”….sort or organic practice in most aspects. The consumers are not necessarily wanting that, altho some do. Most just love the idea of fresh, great tasting food that is local, supporting the area economy.

      Tammy, we are located in downtown Huntington in Heritage Station. Located at the end of 11th Street right by the flood wall and Veterans Memorial Boulevard, Heritage Station is Huntington’s original train station and is now renovated into a lot of interesting shops. The Widl Ramp is open Wednesday-Friday 11-7 and Saturday 10-4 although hours may be changing for the winter. Check us out on Facebook.

    Where can we find this survey? I’ve looked here and on our Facebook and website. I haven’t found this survey =( I would really like to be able to list some grain needs to see if I could get them fulfilled locally.

      The survey is on paper in the Market at the cashier’s station. If you can;t get down there any time soon, you can call (304) 523-RAMP (7267)
