Last (but not least) market in August: see you on the 27th at 9:30!

Walk or bike on over and have yourself a truck experience! The food truck will be perennial favorite, Bonjour Crêperie! You might want to try their “Celso” Crepe, which is filled with Fresh Mozzarella, Baby Spinach, Local Plum Tomatoes, Basil Pesto & a Drizzle of Balsamic Reduction. You can add a Farm Fresh Egg or Happy Chicken as an option!

Unsurpassed musicianship! Our musicians are two returning performers who are absolutely at the top of their game! At 9:30, David Falcone will kick things off, and at 11:30, Hanna Paige will grace the stage (well, the asphalt…)!

David is a fingerstyle acoustic guitarist/vocalist whose influences include the styles and techniques of artists such as Leo Kottke, John Renbourn and Pierre Bensusan. His original compositions reflect a unique synthesis of Celtic, traditional, and classical sounds and forms. His vocal works are often backed with the intricate details blended from these sources of inspiration. "His deft touch pulls stories from the strings in wordless tales of inspired nuance, shifting rhythms and tempos -- all with flawless accuracy and soul."

Hanna is an indie singer/songwriter from Newark, Delaware. She got her first guitar for Christmas 2012, when she was just 13 years old, and taught herself how to play. She started singing shortly thereafter, had her first on-stage performance in October 2013 and has been performing regularly ever since. In her short career, Hanna is already quite accomplished with many live performances and several original songs to her credit. 


Multi-talented artist on hand! Our featured artist will be Jen Loyle. She’s a muralist and a painter/illustrator. In the past year she has started painting on old windows and also paints murals for children's bedrooms, playrooms, etc. Jen loves painting the marshes and back bays in New Jersey, which is where she grew up. Some of her favorite artists are Klimt, Van Gogh, and Maurice Sendak.

The little ones will be making some lovely art! Fun with sticks! Transform humble sticks into a work of art or a simple toy.  Use sticks, yarn, ribbon, and markers to make a wall hanging, God's Eye, or a ribbon wand.

Come visit the Swarthmore College Green Advisors, student fellows of the Office of Sustainability who work to encourage sustainable lifestyles among all Swarthmore community members. In addition to providing information on their work, the group will be encouraging first-year students to 'Visit the Ville' this Saturday. Let's welcome those first-years on Saturday!

Vendor cornucopia! Come celebrate (one more time!) Pennsylvania Produce Month and National Peach month with us, though we think it should also be nectarine month and maybe tomato, melon, cucumber, and okra month. Well, you get the idea! 

In addition to our regularly scheduled vendors, you will be really glad to see a few vendors who are returning after a hiatus of a week or two or more: M&M Creek Valley FarmD’Emilio’s Old World Ice TreatsMarket Day CaneléTaste of Puebla!, and Vera Pasta. Just call it a farm and food party and stop on by!

What should you look for on Saturday? Speaking of nectarines (see above), Beechwood will have some of the best tasting nectarines of the season: the yellow Fantasia and the white Zephyr. And Berry Patch will show up with abundance of outstanding tomatoes and watermelons!

D'Emilio's is showcasing Orange Dreamsicle Ice Treats, as well as Not Your Father's Root Beer 10.7% Ice Treats for the adults (including mayors). Holy sorbetto! 

M&M Creek Valley will have their primal cuts back...tenderloins, ribs, chops, bacon...and are running a special on shoulder roasts and steaks, $2 off per lb. and country bacon, $1 off per lb.!
