Anyone know of anyplace that buys gensing this time of year. I usually sell mine in Paintsville at the flea market. I don't think they buy this time of year, not until season opens. i have about 3/4 of a pound that i have dug over the last few years that i want to sell. i hate selling it for a low price but i need money. thanks for any help you can give.

Natures Bend LLC located at 9213 McWhorter Road in London, KY. I think the owner's name is Charles Allen or something like that. Their phone number is 606-843-2350 I believe. I've done some business with them in the past and they have always given me fair prices. They buy ginseng, yellow root, etc...

Hope this helps.

I dont think you can legally sell it right now. There was four people that got in some trouble a week or so ago here in the south central part of the state for selling about $3500 worth. Something about out of season,I didnt catch the whole story

I dont think you can sell it until after Aug. 15th unless it is to someone that you know like maybe another digger.
