Slippery Rock Community Farmers’ Market is open for the season!

Slippery Rock Community Farmers’ Market is now open for the 2015 season every Saturday morning from 9:00 AM until 12:00 noon at Rock Falls Park (on Route 173 just south of Slippery Rock). Get to know the folks who grow your food and support the regional economy by patronizing your local farmers’ market.

The market features a variety of fresh and preserved foods, including vegetables, fruits, meats and baked goods. Particularly at the beginning of the season, vegetable, herb, fruit, and flower seedlings and plants will be sold for transplanting into gardens and landscape beds. Unique handcrafted items, such as soaps, lotions, home products, candles, and jewelry, also are available.  New vendors are welcome and are encouraged to contact srcfarmersmarket@gmail.com for more information.

In addition to items for sale, the market schedules informative speakers and displays related to food, gardening, health and sustainable living; live music; and activities for children. On May 30th, the Butler County Master Gardeners will bring an informative display, answer gardening questions, and offer plants for sale.
