What We Specialize In

At West Virginia Marketplace you will find a big slice of unique locally-made products. We are truly a craft gallery, book & jewelry store, souvenir shop and gourmet food shop, all-in-one. Our local, West Virginia made products include: candles, jams, jellies and butters, specialty condiments, Fiestaware, handmade baskets & wooden kitchen utensils, Blenko & Ron Hinkle glass, pottery, patchwork, toys, puzzles, pet treats, coffee, books, cards, candy & confections, honey and honey products, pasta, snack foods, syrups and a variety of small gift items — you name it, if it’s made in West Virginia, we probably have it. Many of the products in our shop had never before been to the marketplace. We enjoy being able to give our WV makers a place to sell their goods and a fun place for customers to buy and learn more about them!

We have so many talented artisans and creators in our beloved state! We want to show them love and support their endeavors and we hope you will too.
