For all of you busy people out there, who love to go to farmers markets, but like to be better prepared heading into the weekend (rather than spending the weekend shopping at the markets), The Allentown Association has launched a Friday post-work market. Now you can get all of your goodies at the intersection of Elmwood, Virginia and Edward Street (near Betty’s) – a parcel of land that has “farmers market” written all over it.
Not only will the farmers be on hand selling produce, eggs, breads and baked goods, select restaurants (Quaker Bonnet for example) will feature healthy take-home goodies and meals for anyone looking to unwind at home instead of standing in front of a hot stove preparing dinner. It’s the perfect answer for Friday evening cocktail parties, or simply loading up with locally sourced food options for the weekend. It’s also the answer to questions that Allentowners have posed for years, asking for more quality market options in the neighborhood.
“We are thrilled to have such wonderful growers as Arden Farms, Serenity Valley Farm and the Golden Gals Farm and, beginning in June, Bread Hive, offering the freshest food options to Allentowners. In addition there will be Amish made honey and Jam. This [past] Friday, tomato and vegetable seedlings and a wide assortment of annual flowers were available to help prepare homes and gardens for this year’s Garden Walk.” – The Allentown Association
*Fridays from May 30 to October 31 from 4:00-7:00 PM.
