Here's what's happening at this week's market! 

Saturday July 21st

ARTIST

Our featured artist is Karen Heenan of Useful & Beautiful Handmade. Karen creates soft toys, toddler dresses, accessories, and home goods all made with fabric upcycled from clothing, vintage linens and more. Her shop's name comes from a quote from William Morris: "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."

MUSICIANS:

9:30 - Tom Monari, a singer-song writer living in Swarthmore. He has performed in local bands since the 1980s and is the founder of PhillyLocalIMPACTLive!, a regional organization that provides a forum for local musicians to meet and collaborate.


11:30 - John Bickel, an extraordinary keyboardist and singer! John and the Bickel Brothers Band boasts a unique blend of musical influences which all come together into a sonic jambalaya every time they hit the stage.

FOOD TRUCK:

Bonjour Creperie, with their authentic and delicious breakfast, lunch and sweet crêpes.

KIDS ACTIVITY:

The kids' activity will be making small books to tell your story!

COMMUNITY:

Delco Foundation WIC (Women, Infants, and Children Program) here to tell people about how to use farmers market nutrition vouchers and to provide info on fruits & vegetables, with printed recipes, give-a-ways, and a game for the kids.
The Swarthmore Public Library special book sale!

VENDOR NOTES:

Our bi-weekly, monthly, and occasional vendors include Ashbell's Premium Smoked Meats and Fish, D'Emilio's Old World Ice Treats, Rafiki, Saint Benjamin Brewing, and Whiskey Hollow Maple Syrup.

FOOD ACCESS:

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!)
