Has anybody gone there yet? I went there this week and was disappointed. It was advertised as a one stop shop, but I ended up going to Krogers anyway. The stuff, especially the meat, milk and ice cream, is overpriced and the produce didn't look that good. They don't have much of a selection either and the only fruit they have is apples. Unless it changes, I probably won't waste the gas to drive down there.

It is not advertised for one stop shopping. The items there ARE more expensive because they are fresh and local. I like the idea of putting my money into local businesses/farmers hands instead of the corporate behemmoths that surround the area. As far as the selections of fruit and veggies go, they only sell whats in season. They won't have things that can't be grown locally out of season.

It's a good idea, but people around here can't afford ideas.

It's a good idea that I will support with my wallet. I can honestly say my wife and I no longer shop at WalMart any longer, and our food budget has increased by not doing so. Now you can't buy all your grocery needs at the Wild Ramp, but it is a piece of the puzzle. We like the idea of fresh food grown locally, and hopefully the more people that support ideas like the wild ramp, more shops like the wild ramp will open shop.

Buy Local!

The Wild Ramp is one the best things to happen to Huntington. It's about time there is an option for local seasonal products! The prices are higher, but most everything there tastes better and is better for you. I'm in love with the ground beef and apples.

I agree that is more expensive and not all of the food is local. I was told most of it comes from Ohio and Kentucky and maybe Pennsylvania. I would like to know whether it is inspected and if there are checks in place to make sure the things coming from farms from out-of-state and, even WV, are guaranteed safe. What about the breads and jams that farmers bring in. Do they inspect their kitchens? With all these food scares this is a concern for me and my family. At least with commercial food you know about recalls and which products can make you sick.

All the goods state where the items are from. The furtherest I've seen on any item was Columbus. Most of the items in the store are from within a 50 mile radius.

I'm not trying to run them down. It's just that I can't afford to shop there. I'm glad others can and maybe they will succeed. On my budget, I need to go where I can get the most to feed my family. THat's all I'm saying.

I can't tell you how happy my family is to have Wild Ramp around. Even though we can't afford to get everything from there, each and every item we can afford is one more healthy option for my kids. God bless them for their hard work and vision.

They got some grants to get them going, so they should do fairly well once people catch on that they are there. I hope they can pay the rent until then. There has been so many businesses in and out of Heritage Station, there has to more wrong than just the high rent. It seems like people in Huntington don't support new things. Look at how many good restaurants go out of business. I wish them luck.

If you do your research, you will see that The Wild Ramp has created a 250mi radius that they call local. They do not carry products beyond that radius. YES. All the farms meet FDA approved standards for how they raise their meat and where they take it to slaughter. Please, don't just go look around. Read about it. Also, one of their largest meat producers is from WV.

I LOVE the Wild Ramp. I just ate a bunch of spare ribs from there, and they were truly badass.

DAMN there are a bunch of hot hippie girls here. I went in not knowing what the place was. Ended up buying smoked bacon and talking to a cute girl with big tits and a nose ring. Check out the wine bar near it too.
