Here's what's happening at this week's market!
Saturday August 18th
August is PA Produce Month
The special activity will be a chef demo from Swarthmorean, Tim Smith, who is the chef at Station Taproom. Now get this: the dish is local peaches poached in local habanero mango mead with mascarpone white chocolate cream. See you at 10:30 AM!
Our featured artist is Cait Sumner, from Evergreen Stitch, who designs and creates wonderful handmade baby and toddler clothing in her Aldan studio.
9:30 - John Bickel - John, keyboardist and singer extraordinaire, will be singing and playing his heart out.
11:30 - Jim Smith - Jim, whose truest love is song, is an American original singer and guitarist with a sweet sweet voice.
The food truck is Delaware's own, Plum Pit, maker of delicious street food!
The kids' activity will be making leis.
The community visitors will be Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) from Widener University, from whom you can learn about lifelong learning programs for adults over 50, and the Swarthmore Senior Citizens Association who will be promoting the fall season of activities with a poster, as well as the SSCA in general…and likely bottled water to ease your thirst. .
SPECIAL VENDOR NOTES:
Our bi-weekly, monthly, and occasional vendors include D'Emilio's Old World Ice Treats, Rafiki Taste of Africa, Saint Benjamin Brewing, and Whiskey Hollow Maple Syrup.
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!)
A Video About the Market (lovingly produced by Beautiful Social from St. Joseph's University)
As said by a Swarthmore Farmers Market guest, "Tom (Monari) and Sara (Williams) were awesome, and so were the children who danced to their music!".
We love having live music at every market. Come visit us and see all that we have to offer!
