Inserts From Our Members
Slippery Rock Farmers Market is returning to the heart of Slippery Rock for the 2018 season! The market will open on Saturday, May 19th in Gateway Park, along Route 108 between Elm and South Main Streets. Market days and hours will remain the same: 9:00 AM until 12:00 noon, every Saturday into October.
Market managers thank Rock Falls Park for hosting the market since 2011 and honor the work that co-owners Todd and Ron have done for us through those years. This year the market will be sponsored by Slippery Rock Development, Inc. The change in location will afford exciting opportunities to partner with local businesses and to maintain the market’s reputation as a friendly, community gathering place.
Because the market aims to support local growers and makers, the produce sold is grown locally, and is seasonal. In May, you likely will find vegetable, fruit, and flower seedlings and plants for transplanting into gardens and landscape beds. Early spring greens, herbs, radishes, asparagus, and rhubarb will be available as these mature during the weeks ahead. Vendors also will offer a variety of fresh and preserved foods, including grass-finished beef, eggs, goat milk fudge, jellies, breads and other baked goods. Unique handcrafted items, such as natural soaps, hair and skin products, jewelry, and decorative pieces may be available as well.
You’ll find that while some vendors come in and out over the season, as their vegetables and fruits are ready and ripe, others may have fresh or homemade items on a regular basis. Watch the market’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SRCFM/ for updates that will tell you what you can expect to see at the market and what special events are scheduled as the season progresses. Help us spread the word, and come often to see what the market has to offer!
