We hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July! The market is back in full swing this week, celebrating National Parks and Recreation Month!
This week only, we are offering FREE ice cream from Beedle’s Ice Cream Truck to the first 50 kids who visit the market. Just stop by the Recreation tent, show us you follow the Bethel Park Farmers’ Market on Facebook or Instagram, and earn your ice cream ticket!
This week features our Half A vendors, as well as visiting vendors Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Truck and Whimsical Wardrobe Boutique. Harry Funk will be our musical entertainment, and we have Vince from the Bethel Park Community Center offering intro Qigong classes at 4pm and 6pm. The Bethel Park Public Library children’s department will also be visiting!
We are also THRILLED to announce that the Bethel Park Farmers’ Market is now eligible to accept SNAP and EBT benefits. These can be used on any food items at the market, excluding food truck purchases, non food items, pet items, and alcohol. Produce, honey, syrups, breads, jams, cheeses, meats, and more are all items eligible for EBT purchase.
Even better – we are partnering with the FAM (Food Assistance Match) program to multiply the buying power of your SNAP benefits. Stop by our tent for more details, or visit the FAM website.
Just a few reminders – the market has expanded its footprint this season, so there will no longer be parking near the market trailer (instead we are adding additional vendors!) We will still reserve space for four handicapped spaces (located behind the market trailer, near the food trucks), and the lot has plenty of room to park!
Please note, we are aware of the demand for additional tables and chairs, and are working to find a solution as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we will be providing additional trash cans throughout the lot and encourage you to bring your own chairs, tailgate, and enjoy the market!
As always, market vendors are not permitted to sell until 3pm – we love the excitement of the early birds but remind you that we do this to allow all vendors ample time for setup.
We can’t wait to see you there!
