The 2017 season is nigh upon us! See below for a quick advance notice on our May 13th kickoff market.

Hope you’re ready for the start of the farmers market season on May 13th! 

We are looking forward to another great season, but first we’ll focus on that first market, which should be a blast. Why? Well…we will be neighbors to the 2017 Spring Makers Market on Park Avenue, with its 20+ local artist vendors, which goes from 9:30 AM to 4 PM. And across Dartmouth will be the Swarthmore Hort "Bloom or Bust" Plant Sale from 9 till noon. 

We have 2 fabulous musical performers, David Falcone and Dyana Cannon; our own market artist, Katie Horn; button crafts activity for kids; and barbecue by Hogface BBQ, to help raise funds for the Swarthmore Fire Company. 

Central Park will be graced with many of our wonderful returning vendors: Beechwood Orchards, Berry Patch Produce, Big Sky Bakery, Blue Mountain Vineyard, Crisp Pickles, Davidson Exotics, Firehouse Donuts, Good Spoon Soups, Kneehigh Farm, Randalia Bee Hives, Taste of Puebla, and Waffles for Tourettes. 

You’ll get to meet some of our new market sellers on that day: Greenstreet Coffee (yay, coffee is back), Holy Myrrh Bearers Church (pierogis), Ironstone Creamery and Farm (pork, chicken, eggs, turkey, lamb, as well as milk, yogurt, butter and other dairy products), Natural Landscaping (plants in planters), Tooth of the Lion Farm & Apothecary (farm-based apothecary selling tinctures and tea blends), and Wyldcraft (mini themed gardens, cards, and tea towels)! 

And it’s the day before Mother’s Day. The market will give you a great opportunity to “pre-celebrate” the day and/or buy some good food and non-food items for that special mom in your life! 

And that’s just our kick-off. Other vendors who will show off their wares after the 13th include: Ashbell's Smokehouse Deli, D’Emilio’s Old World Ice Treats, Hazel and Ash Organics, Market Day Canele, MoJo's Pop Co, Neil's Sharpening Service, Nether Providence Soaps, Red Brick Craft Distillery, Summer J. Artisan Ice Pops, Sweet Salvation Truffles, and Whiskey Hollow Maple Syrup. Not to mention (well, OK, I will mention them), some old and new favorite food trucks, like Bonjour Crêperie, Chez Yasmine, the Flying Deutschman (for, yes, Oktoberfest on 10/21), Nutritious365 Mobile, PB&Jams, Plum Pit, Rafiki Shoppe, and Sweetest Rose Cupcakes! 

See you all soon!
