Fresh, local strawberries are needed for this year's Strawberry Festival.
The festival board, City of Buckhannon, and the West Virginia Department of Agriculture are working with local farmers to stock a new Strawberry Market.
The market would open on Friday and Saturday under a retail tent next to the county courthouse.
The festival is set for May 10-18.
