Week of June 8 & 12

Big thanks to everyone who came out to our opening day last Saturday! We had a good turnout, a nice breeze, and a lot of fun!

Did you know...
  • We have 19 registered vendors this season!  Most will be there each week, but we also "mini-members" who will sell at the market for 5 weeks throughout the season.  We'll let you know when to expect them!
  • We are welcoming 7 new vendors to the market this year
  • Our opening market offered more than 45 different items for sale, including produce, bath and body products, potted plants, baked goods, and more!
While we are off to a great start, the best is yet to come!  As the weeks go by, we will welcome more vendors and there will be a greater variety (and more quantity) of produce for sale.  Come out and see what's new each week!

Last week, some highlights were lots of lettuce and other greens, fresh, juicy strawberries, beautiful wildflowers and cut flowers, and goat's milk soap.  We also enjoyed handmade jewelry by Chere Winnek-Shawer of CWS Design Studio, music by Dan Stonerook, yoga with Ed Stancombe of Sunflower Yoga, and learned about hosting international exchange students through the Council for Educational Travel (CETUSA).

This week, we are looking forward to our first Wednesday  market of the season, from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m. on Wayne Avenue in the large parking lot across from the KCAC.  

Special tents for the Saturday market include music from Christian & Taylor and information on the Food Co-op of Indiana County.  

The Food Co-op of Indiana County is a group dedicated to increasing access to healthy, locally grown and produced food and supporting local and regional food producers and growers.  

We may still have a few cool evenings ahead, and soup sure tastes great on a rainy day.  Why not try some Kohlrabi Soup?  Recipe courtesy of Stanley from Uncle Henry's Garden.
