Artisanal Food

The Mountain State has a knack for creating delicious flavors and these handcrafted foods are no exception. Be sure to stock up on these West Virginia-made products.

J.Q. Dickinson Salt-Works and their “brilliantly clean” artisanal salt is harvested by the hands of a 7th generation salt-making family. It’s 100% local, coming from right underneath the Appalachian Mountains in the Kanawha Valley.

Blue Smoke Salsa’s homemade, kettle-cooked salsas come in 6 varieties, starting at mild and stretching to “triple-x hot.”

In between the mountains of West Virginia, a tiny kitchen churns out authentic Swiss chocolates. Holl’s Chocolate shops in Vienna and Charleston still offer the same authentic chocolates Fritz Holl whipped up in the 50s when he immigrated here from Switzerland, in response to an ad placed by Broughton’s dairy company for a Swiss-trained chocolatier.

DeFluri’s in Martinsburg also crafts fine artisan sweets, including award-winning wine chocolates and fresh cream truffles.

Clothing

West Virginia is home to many purveyors of fine fashions. Explore these West Virginia-made clothing items.

From sweatshirts flaunting the glistening State Capitol building to “West by God” toboggan hats, Kin Ship Goods in Charleston has an array of Mountain State-themed goodies. The owners, Dan and Hillary, print their apparel in house, alongside their 1-eyed, 4-legged beagle buddy, Lazy Hazy.

SustainU clothing in Morgantown makes simple products: mostly T-shirts and hoodies. But they are serious about being eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable— they use recycled materials, save water by avoiding cotton and keep their production in the USA.

South Charleston based luxury leather goods brand, Morgan Rhea is a design and production studio that prides themselves in carefully crafting accessories that tell a story and show the owner’s journey alongside it through the natural wear of the leather.
