Market Preview August 27 & 30

The rain held off this week for both of our market days, and we noticed some new customers at our Saturday market, possibly IUP students and parents in for the move-in weekend. We hope with IUP back in session, we will be seeing more students frequent the market, a great healthy community oriented event that everyone can enjoy!  On Saturday we had a lot of interest in our Community Tent where Master Food Preserver, Marcy Cunkelman, discussed the appropriate ways to preserve summer's harvest. We hope to have Marcy attend the market again later in the season when people are getting ready to start canning late summer produce!  Our musician, Tim Ball's One-Man-Band, was rocking all market and our customers really appreciated his playing!

Again this week at the Wednesday market you will be able to have a FREE blood pressure screening thanks to nurses from Beacon Ridge. ***Wednesday we will still have the market even though it's fair week and our parking lot is used for fair parking. You will find us in our same lot, just moved slightly towards the Wayne Avenue side (rather than the Hospital Road side) to accommodate for fair parking. Just look for our market tents!***  This Saturday we will have the League of Women Voters in our Community Tent, new artist Richard Roberts in our Artisan Tent, and Food Science fun in our Kid's Tent brought to you by IUP Food and Nutrition Professor Jodie Seybold!
