August 19 & 22

August 19 & 22

Last week, we enjoyed welcoming a new vendor to the market!  Eden Apiaries sells local honey in a variety of flavors and sizes “From the Garden of Eden”, as well as maple syrup.  Eight Maples Farm had pears for sale, and lamb is back at Mahoning Creek Farm!

Thanks to Texas Ted and Jenna Vendetta, with Doc Pober, for another great performance!

First Unitarian Universalist Church of Indiana shared ways that we can all help fight childhood hunger in Indiana County, including:

  • Fill a child’s backpack with food
  • Plant a row of your favorite vegetable and donate it
  • Start a food drive for ICCAP or the Love Basket
  • Give money or grocery cards to ICCAP or the Love Basket
  • Plant seeds to create seedlings to donate to the Seedling Project
  • Donate your time to harvest produce

To get involved, contact the Social Justice Project at

Coming this week:

This Saturday, August 22, we hope you will stop by the kids’ tent for recipes and food samples and have a chat with the folks from the Center for Community Growth. 

The Center for Community Growth seeks to lead individuals and organizations in and around Indiana County to advance social, racial, gender, LGBTQIA, economic, and environmental justice.  The Center actively engages people of diverse philosophies, faiths, and backgrounds to work together to form a more fair, equitable, and sustainable community.

Community:  Center for Community Growth
Kids’ Tent:  Recipe and food samples with Jodie Seybold

We do still have openings in our special tents this market season.  If you are interested, please contact us at

Save the date! Our annual Customer Appreciation Day is scheduled for Saturday, August 29!  We’re looking forward to a fun morning, including a basket giveaway of market goodies and special tents focusing on healthy lifestyles!

Remember to check out our Facebook page for market updates as well as some tasty recipes for using your market veggies this week!

Have you ever tried cooking your corn on the cob in a pressure cooker?

See you at the market!
