Week of August 31 & September 3

Welcome back IUP students, faculty and staff!  The market is still in full swing, and we are excited to have the bustle of a new school year beginning.  If you haven't been to the market in a while, now is the time to make a visit.  We have lots of new vendors this year, and this weekend will also feature a full lineup of special tents, including a chef demonstrations.  Come see what is new!

Last week, the Indiana Free Library once again shared stories and games with kids of all ages.  We also learned about hunger in our community and ways to help with the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Indiana, PA.  One of their current initiatives is the Power Pack Program, which provides food to local children who are at risk of hunger.

This week, we are looking forward to lots of activity!  The Women's Club of IUP kicks off the new school year in our Community Tent, selling some of their very own community cookbooks.  Our Artisan Tent will feature one-of-a-kind items (such as skirts, dresses, and ponchos) created from Terrible Towels by Jackie Montgomery.  Kids and music combine this week with the Music Together! program.  Finally, we welcome back Josh Truitt of The Coventry Inn for another chef demonstration.  He will be cooking up some of your favorite market produce and handing out samples.  His zucchini salad, grilled green beans, and meatballs were a big hit earlier this summer, so be sure to check it out!

Our featured vendor this week is Mother Earth Farm.  Chloe began as a volunteer with the market and is now in her second year as a farmer and vendor!

We are open during Fair week at our regular times and locations - including Wednesday afternoon on Wayne Avenue across from the KCAC (in the same lot as Fair parking).

You can also visit us at our Fair booth in the exhibition building across from the grandstand every evening this week!

Music Together is an internationally recognized music and movement program for children birth through age five - and the grownups who love them.  Our local Music Together program is run in partnership with the IUP Community Music School.

Save the Date!!

Health and Wellness Day is Saturday, September 17! 

All of our special tents and activities will be focused on healthy living, including chef demonstrations with Nick Karas of Nap's Cucina Mia.

See you at the market!
