Charleston. W.Va. (AP) -- A nonprofit group says two West Virginia farmers markets rank among the top 20 favorites in the nation.

The Washington, D.C.-based American Farmland Trust says more than 800 farmers markets nationwide signed up to participate in the contest and voting was held from June to early August.

In the medium division, consisting of markets with 31 to 55 vendors, the Capitol Market in Charleston finished second to the Williamsburg Farmers Market in Virginia.

The Morgantown Farmers Market is ranked 16th.

    why is the downtown farmers market higher priced than all the stores in town? The stores buy in larger amounts and ship and yet its cheeper than are local farmers will sell for ,seems like someone is trying to get rich fast rather than help the community
