North Hills residents looking for fresh produce and hand-crafted merchandise need not travel very far.

Vendors include Freedom Farms, The Olive Tap, Wigle Whiskey, Jarred, GOODLife Juices, Aunt Carol's Homemade Dips, Gahr's Hamloaf, Zeke's Coffee and many more.

The farmer's market will be set up from 3 to 7 p.m. in the upper level of the mall's south atrium near the DSW shoe store and the Wahlburgers restaurant.

A free “Kid's Safety” event will be held in conjunction with the June 22 farmer's market featuring fire, police and EMS vehicles; drawings for prizes; face painting; a balloon artist; a make Silly Putty demonstration by the Carnegie Science Center; and a Meet the Mascot visit from the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium.

The Block Northway is located along McKnight Road in Ross.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
