The Market History

Since 2008, The Big Stone Gap Farmers Market has been a vital part of the community of Big Stone Gap and the town’s downtown area.  Board members and volunteers are comprised of representatives from the community who care about their community, their famers and patrons.


Yearly the Market will continue to focus on healthy food demonstrations provided by the county extension, Master Gardeners and local chefs to educate further on local farmers produce and nutritional benefits.

About the Market

The Big Stone Gap Farmers Market : Home Grown  and Homemade.   Visit us for a variety of fruit/vegetables in season, handcrafted items, and baked goods. We encourage you to get to know our local farmers who grow spring, mid-season, and fall produce to sell fresh from their fields to you. This is a place where food tells a story! 


We accept SNAP/EBT and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program Vouchers and Debit and Credit!

Heirloom vegetables are a market specialty. Bulk produce orders for canning are available. Quilts, birdhouses, jewelry, pottery, walking sticks, hand carving, pocketbooks, soap, and aprons are some of the craft items to be found at the market, as well as honey, sorghum molasses,  jam and jelly, home baked bread, rolls, candy and fried pies.  Visit us and stay a while
