HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Enjoy free cake, a Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams tasting, tours of the new Online Food Hub, meeting local producers and more at The Wild Ramp’s 10th Birthday Celebration on Sunday, July 17 (National Ice Cream Day). The festivities will take place from 1–4 p.m. at the market, located at 555 14th St W. in Huntington.
“It was amazing right from the start. From day one the community embraced the idea of a year-round, indoor farmers market, and with hard work and help from sponsors, donors, volunteers and the producers themselves, The Wild Ramp has grown and surpassed all expectations,” said Market Director Shelly Keeney. “Over the past ten years our market staff and board has remained steadfast to our mission of increasing local food access in our region. And with the launch of our new Online Food Hub platform, we expect to grow the farming community we serve by leaps and bounds. I’m optimistic about the future of The Wild Ramp and look forward to the next 10 years.”
