A Farm 5k for Your Labor Day Weekend: Wardensville, WV

Explorer Blog Shared by Wardensville Garden Market

Make this Labor Day weekend one to remember in Wardensville, WV. This small town is located right off Rt. 259 on your way to Deep Creek, Canaan or Davis! And, September 3rd the Wardensville Garden Market will be hosting their 5th Annual Farm 5k Run/Walk Benefit with all proceeds donated to the local fire and rescue squads with their Premier Race Sponsor – Capon Valley Bank. Last year, our team was able to raise $12,000 dollars and we are working to surpass that this year!

But, if signing up for the cause isn’t enticing enough… let’s talk about the path. This gorgeous, easily accessible course goes down through the lush fields of this organic 100-acre farm, bending by the Cacapon River with the rolling mountainside off in the distance. A perfect choice for all ages and skill levels.

Still not convinced? Aside from the race, there will be vendors, a food truck and the famous from-scratch bakery, regionally sourced farmhouse market and fresh organic produce stand awaiting you after the journey!

The Wardensville Garden Market is not only known for their giant and delicious cinnamon rolls, but also for employing over 80 local highschool students and awarding over 180,000 dollars from their scholarship fund!

What’s better than a peaceful farm walk? One that has a mouth-watering pastry awaiting you at the end… sign me up!
