“The changing seasons dictate the inventory, which means you'll never visit the same market twice. It’s a spectacular place to plug into the vibe of this vibrant mountain ringed town and grab some authentic West Virginia wares to remember your trip.”
- Taste of the South Magazine
Capitol Market is located in a charming, restored turn-of-the-century train station from the 1800’s. We have convenient and plentiful free parking, a Charleston Visitor Center and are located in the heart of downtown. We’re just minutes from the West Virginia Capitol Complex, State Culture Center, Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences & Appalachian Power Park – less than 1/2 mile from the convergence of Interstates 77, 79 & 64!
We feature a fine Italian restaurant, indoor specialty shops, over 30 seasonal West Virginia outdoor farmers and growers, a 900 foot-long porch with seating for alfresco dining, plus multiple community events. Come see us during your visit and explore our unique slice of Appalachia!

Fresh and Fantastic! There is something for everyone here! The outdoor section is full of plants, fruits and veggies with so many offerings you can easily spend an entire day shopping for your favorites! Inside is more than you can hope for with coffee, wine, crafts, and the purple onion market! I left with some amazing honey, pepper mustard, fresh produce, several marinades, gorgeous hanging baskets, and a few local crafts that were high quality! Spend some time here, you won't regret it!
I'm a big fan of reusing old buildings, and that's exactly what they did here. There's sushi, a deli, good coffee, chocolate truffles wine market, possibly a restaurant, and more. It's a casual place with outside seating to enjoy your food purchases. The farmers market out front has great produce, and lots of plants. This is a great stop if you're in the area. There's also an ATM on premises.
