Week of June 15 & 18

This week marked the opening of our Wednesday market, and a little wind couldn't keep our shoppers away!  We also welcomed another new vendor this week - Fat Radish Farm of Commodore.  Mahnoning Creek Farm, Peterson Produce, and the Country Bread Barn returned for the first time this season, as well.  Remember to check out our "About the Farmers/Vendors" page to learn more about all of our vendors.

Thank you to the Food Co-op of Indiana, PA for helping lead the discussion about increasing access to local foods in our community and to Christian and Taylor for creating adding even more fun to the market atmosphere with their music!

Next week, we are happy to have IRMC join our Wednesday market with free health screenings.  They will alternate weeks throughout the season with Beacon Ridge, who have provided blood pressure screenings at past markets.  What better way to improve your health than with some fresh market air and delicious, local fruits and veggies?

Saturday, our artisan tent will be occupied by Kathy Tangren and her beautiful handmade rugs.

Most weeks this season, we will highlight one of our vendors.  One of the greatest things about shopping at your local farmers' market is getting to know the people who grow and produce your food, so these spotlights will provide just a little extra information to get you started!

Save the Date:  Kids' Day is coming up in two weeks on, Saturday, June 25th!  Our special tents will be filled with fun activities for all ages, including gardening and music activities and free face painting!  Bring the whole family!
