Their son, Jameson, 5, the farm's namesake, was helping his dad unload a truckful of wreaths. Inside the market, 7-year-old Emily was helping at the register in the WV Marketplace.
Marvin Edwards said he would bring at least 500 trees from his Mason County farm for holiday sales. He sold about five trees the weekend before Thanksgiving and about 15 total so far.
"Next week will be our big weekend," Edwards said.
Buying trees early shouldn't be a problem when putting fresh-cut ones up inside the house, he said.
"The main thing is to keep them watered," he warned. "Don't let them dry out."
Vendor Sandy Parsons had the same advice for early decorators.
"The 16th was our opening day," she said. "Some people put them up at Thanksgiving because the family gets together around that time.
"You can put them up now as long as you water them," Parsons said. "Don't let the sap cover the fresh cut."
Parsons has been selling West Virginia holiday trees since 1977 at the market - a seniority that has earned her the first vendor space off the parking lot. She has customers who return every year, and some who know her from selling summer produce.
"But the vendors here are like a family," she said. "If I don't have something, I'll recommend another vendor. We've all been up here together for years."
Her biggest competition, she said, isn't other sellers but artificial trees - an option that tempts a lot of people.
"Why not come up here and help West Virginia farmers?" she asked. "Why would you buy an artificial tree when you can buy something that comes right from here?"
