Downtown’s showcase Farmers Market has returned to Market Square…and it’s even bigger and better than ever! Now in its 9th season, the popular Market Square Farmers Market is a great opportunity for local farmers to promote their goods while providing the Downtown community with a unique and convenient shopping experience. Each Thursday, Downtown’s biggest Farmers Market attracts 7,000-10,000 office workers, residents and visitors to Market Square to enjoy local produce, gourmet treats and the many diverse restaurants and shops surrounding the Square. This season, we’re bringing the region’s cream of the crop to the heart of the City. As many as 25 weekly vendors will be showcased in the significantly expanded Market, along with free Noontime concerts. Produced by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP), the Market Square Farmers Market runs each Thursday through October 31, 2013, 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Market-goers can expect to choose from a variety of goods such as: breads; banana loaf cakes; crunchy biscotti; fresh-cut flowers; live herb plants and teas; homemade, all-natural vegetarian dog treats; fresh vegetables and fruits; naturally dry-aged beef; organic raw milk and cheese; beeswax candles; honey; Angora goat yarn and more.
Oh yeah, each Thursday at 11:30 a.m., the Square will be rockin’ with live acoustic performances by some of Pittsburgh's top talent! A schedule of performances will be posted monthly so check back for updates!
So shake-up your Thursdays and enjoy a little lunch, shopping and music in one of Downtown’s hottest places to be – Market Square!
