For those visiting Bridgeport who have already sampled the city's fare or those who are residents of the city and beyond looking for a quick trip for a new culinary experience, here's the latest edition of WBOY's Restaurant Road Trip. And this one is located just south of Bridgeport; less than an hour away.
It's not hard to find the Fish Hawk Market, situated just down the street from the Upshur County Courthouse, but its customers say what you can find inside continues to surprise. Chef Dale Hawkins opened the market in his hometown of Buckhannon, and said he tries to connect the restaurant to the area as closely as possible.
"Everything's from scratch. We try to use as much local product as possible, and it's difficult to do in winter time, but in spring, summer, fall, we have a farm down in Rock Cave, and we also work with other producers in the area to get as much local product as we can," Hawkins said.
It's not just a good idea. Hawkins said there's a lot of reasons to support area growers, including the great economic benefit. But the most important reason is that it just makes everything better.
