Here's what's happening at this week's market!
Saturday July 14th
Our featured artists are Josh Allain, a cartoonist, illustrator, and collage artist based in Clifton Heights; and Cait Summer from Evergreen Stitch, designing and creating handmade baby and toddler clothing in her Aldan studio.
9:30 - The Rose Valley Boys (Pete Prown and John Campbell, who have been playing in the area for over 15 years. John is a Delco native and been in local bands for four decades. Pete has released several CDs with the band Guitar Garden and the surf-guitar record, Sir Clive & the Raging Cartographers and is a world-renowned expert on guitars)
11:30 - The Minor Adjustments (an acoustic band based out of Media. Their sound takes influence from bluegrass and country to jazz and blues. Their aim is for a diverse musical palette spanning genres while sticking to the simplistic roots of acoustic sound. And they're a pretty friendly and smiley bunch too!)
Obsidian Eats, the only all vegan soul food cart in Philly
Edian Rodriguez, a member of the Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild, who will bring a hive and bees, so kids (yes, and adults) can learn all about bee hives and beekeeping.
The Swarthmore Campus & Community Store will be on hand selling "Swarthmore" merchandise, including "Swarthmore" tee shirts in a variety of colors for just $10 and will also give out bookmarks.
The Swarthmorean will be selling subscriptions and Swarthmorean gear.
Our bi-weekly, monthly, and occasional vendors include Hazel and Ash Organics, Holy Myrrh-Bearers Church Pierogies (with their once-a-summer pierogi specials of Ukrainian kraut, Ukrainian kraut with kielbasi, buffalo chicken, and - what else but - cheese steak), Market Day Canele, Nether Providence Soaps, Paradocx Vineyards, Pour Richard's Coffee, Summer J. Artisan Ice Pops, Taste of Puebla, and Wrong Crowd Beer.
Donna D. Diakite will be back for her monthly visit to the market, where she will offer short and sweet reflexology and aromatherapy mini-sessions.
If fruit is what you are after, Beechwood Orchards will have plenty of white and yellow peaches, white and yellow nectarines (the first of the season), Methley sugar plums (a super-sweet Japanese cultivar), early golden plums, apricots, and more!
The market is proud to accept SNAP (EBT/ACCESS) payments, along with Food Bucks, an amazing program from The Food Trust that allows SNAP customers to get $2 in Food Bucks to spend on fruits and vegetables for every $5 in SNAP purchases.
We are also delighted to accept WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) vouchers, which provide WIC recipients and low-income seniors with fresh, nutritious, locally grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs from approved farmers in Pennsylvania.
Reminder that convenient parking is always available nearby on Myers Avenue and in the SEPTA lot (and no need to feed the meters on Saturday!)
