The July 22nd Market: mouse melons, peaches, crêpes, and much much more!

Below are a few things you probably don’t want to miss on Saturday...

Kids stuff! We are delighted that The School in Rose Valley will be helping with the kids' activity this week. Come on by, meet SRV, and make a paper jellyfish! We promise – no stinging!

A Swarthmore Favorite Food Truck. The award-winning Bonjour Crêperie will be on site for their monthly visit with their delectable and authentic crêpes.

Simply outstanding music! Come for amazing performances from two of the market crowd’s favorites: Bethlehem & Sad Patrick at 9:30 and Herb Mondros & Out of Order at 11:30.

Fabulous local artist. Tannei Casey of tanneicasey handmade will be showing and selling her wonderful handmade bags and quilts.

The Inn is in! The Inn at Swarthmore will be at the market. To get ready for their upcoming “Pau Hana” Hawaiian party, they will be serving a special non-alcoholic, ginger beer-inspired, cocktail for everyone to try and will also give away two tickets to the event. Refreshing and rewarding indeed.

Its an occasion! We will have a boatload (well, parking lot full) of biweekly and monthly vendors: Crisp Pickles, Hazel & Ash Organics, Nether Providence Soaps, Taste of Puebla, and Tooth of the Lion Farm & Apothecary. As an FYI, Neil's Sharpening will be at the market on 7/29 instead of this week.

Back in the saddle! So excited to welcome D’Emilio’s Old World Ice Treats for their first visit of the season! Come by, say hi, and do try Chris’ amazing sorbetto.

Welcome, co-opy friends! The Mid-Atlantic Food Cooperative Alliance Summer Meeting will be at the Co-op on Saturday, and we look forward to welcoming the attendees to the market!

Yup, it's still the heart of the growing (and creating) season! Those loveable little Mouse Melons (Mexican Sour Gherkins) from Kneehigh are back on Saturday! Not to mention a scintilla of okra, beaucoup basil for pesto making as well as, yes, squash blossoms.

From Berry Patch, look for green peppers, eggplants, a new batch of sweet corn, and red onions. And maybe a surprise (just maybe, don’t count on it).

From Beechwood, uh huh, still blueberries! Also, white donut peaches and plenty of both yellow, mostly Redhaven, and white peaches, yellow and white nectarines, yellow donut peaches, etc.

In addition to their wonderful meats and eggs, Ironstone will have chocolate milk and yogurt smoothies along with both regular and Greek yogurt. Hazel & Ash will be on hand with their Jamaican Jerk hot sauce, in addition to their other amazing sauces and preserves.

NP Soaps will be bringing vegan lip balms. Given the hot weather, Saarene will be leaving most of her meltable products home, so if you would like salt or sugar scrubs or body butters, you should pre-order these online ( for pick-up at the market or send her an email ( by Friday night.

Looking forward to seeing you!
