2016 Opening Day!

It’s almost here!  Opening day of the Indiana County Farmers’ Market is Saturday, June 4th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon in the parking lot behind S&T Bank, at 8th and Church in downtown Indiana.  We are excited to see many returning vendors, familiar faces, and some new vendors, too!  

We welcome Lone Oak FarmFat Radish FarmUncle Henry’s GardenStutzman Farms, Longview Farm and Apiary, and Back to the Roots Farm this season.  A full list of market vendors is available on our vendor page.

Look for a variety of fresh, local items, including asparagus, rhubarb, greens like lettuce and kale, root veggies such as radishes, carrots, and beets, strawberries, and herbs.  Round out your shopping trip with baked goods, honey, and locally-raised meats!

Wondering when your favorites will be in season?  You can find a chart of popular PA vegetables here.

We also have lots of fun scheduled in our special tents this week:
·         Musician:  Dan Stonerook – “unique blend of classic rock, folk and blues”
·         Artisan:  Chere Winnek-Shawer – jewelry
·         Kids’:  Yoga with Ed Stancome of Sunflower Yoga – there are many potential benefits of yoga for children, including improved self-esteem, concentration, and physical fitness.  Adults welcome, too!
·         Community:  Council for Educational Travel (CETUSA) -  A not-for-profit international student exchange organization coordinating exchange experiences for high school students in Indiana County, with a mission “to encourage a lifelong journey of global peace and understanding” for the students, host families and communities that are part of the exchange experience. CETUSA is a U.S. Department of State Exchange Visitor (J-1 visa) sponsor organization.

Please remember that while we at the Farmers’ Market are very fond of pets of all kinds, due to PA Department of Agriculture regulations, no pets are permitted at the market.  If you do bring a pet, please tie them up outside the market.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

Bring the whole family for a morning of fresh, local foods, community, and fun! 

See you at the market!
