2016 Market Square Farmers Market

Downtown’s showcase Farmers Market is set to celebrate it’s 12th season with fresh produce and goods from local vendors, while providing the Downtown community with a unique and convenient shopping experience that enlivened the city. Each Thursday from May 12 - October 27, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., an average of 7,000 - 10,000 office employees, residents, and visitors to Pittsburgh come to Market Square to enjoy the gourmet treats, fresh grocery finds, and unique entertainment opportunities throughout the market. Over 30 weekly vendors are showcased, many of whom are featured in regional press for their delicious, unique goods (Cobbler World featured in Pittsburgh Magazine, Batch, LLC featured in TRIBLive).

Fresh-cut flowers, live herb plants, fresh fruit and vegetables, organic milk and cheese, honey, yarn, breads, cakes, and fresh-pressed juices are all available for Downtown shoppers, along with an assortment of prepared foods ready for lunch.

In addition, free afternoon concerts entertain Market-goers from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m., featuring an array of diverse performances ranging from acoustic local musicians to the Pittsburgh Opera Resident Performers.

Special events will again return to the Market Square Farmers Market, including “Christmas in July” celebrations,, Irish Day, Navy Week entertainment, and the year-end Halloween bash.


2016 will see the second year of our Small Business Spotlight program, designed to support small retailers in Downtown Pittsburgh. This allows the feature retailer to showcase their offerings with the Market’s well-established community of shoppers, promoting engagement in Downtown’s retail scene. 

Among the Downtown business which participated are Boutique la Passerelle, Amazing Books and Records, Local Press, Wallace Floral, and more.
