Slippery Rock Community Farmers and Makers Market Opens for the Season May 6th!

Slippery Rock Community Farmers’ and Makers Market will open for the 2017 season on Saturday, May 6th at Rock Falls Park (on Route 173 just south of Slippery Rock). Get to know the folks who grow your food and create various handmade items, each Saturday from 9:00 AM until 12:00 noon through the end of October.

Because all produce offered at the market is locally grown, shoppers might expect to find asparagus, rhubarb, herbs, and early spring greens, as these become available during the month of May. Vegetable, fruit, and flower seedlings and plants for transplanting into gardens and landscape beds will be featured at the beginning of the market season. Vendors also will offer a variety of fresh and preserved foods, including grass-finished beef, goat milk fudge, jellies, breads and other baked goods. Unique handcrafted items, such as natural soaps, hair and skin products, knit items, jewelry, and decorative pieces will be available as well.  New vendors are welcome and are encouraged to contact srcfarmersmarket@gmail.com for more information.

In addition to products for sale, the market schedules live music; informative speakers and displays; and activities for children throughout the season.
