If You Haven’t Been Waiting For Ramp Dinners All Year Long, You Might Not Be A True West Virginian

We love all the seasons here in West Virginia, but spring does have a special spot in our hearts because, well, ramps. If you don’t know what these are (and if you haven’t been waiting impatiently all year to eat them again), you must be somewhat new to the state! But we’re here to help catch you up to speed on everything you need to know about these magical vegetables and where to find them this spring.

Ramp season typically runs from late March through early May, with most ramp festivals and dinners occurring in April.
