Bushy Run Market will soon open for another season.

Bushy Run Battlefield Heritage Society Inc. will resume its open air market on May 25, continuing each fourth Saturday of the month through Sept. 28.

The Bushy Run Market will host a variety of artisans and vendors, while encouraging those attending to visit the grounds of the battlefield, site of a historic 1763 battle between British and Native American forces.

A slightly new presentation this year will feature market vendors grouped thematically according to their wares. The hope is to expand the variety of participants, site officials say.

These groups will include general artisans and local vendors, historical vendors and individuals selling antiques and related items.

“We are thrilled to be hosting the Bushy Run Market again this season with a new format,” says Rob Malley, heritage society volunteer and market organizer.

“The market represents Bushy Run’s mission to expand community engagement and offers yet another option for people to enjoy our beautiful park,” he says.

Each market day, gates will open at 7 a.m. for vendors and 8 a.m. for guests, closing at noon.

Vendors may reserve a space for all five market days for $50. Individual market day vendor reservations are $20.

Vendor requests can be made through [email protected]

Live animals, firearms, ammunition or other explosives, contract sales (services, etc.) and third party sales are not acceptable.

Limited food items will be sold at the concession stand, and visitors will receive free coffee and tea.

The visitor center will be open for regular hours (9 a.m.-5 p.m.) with regular museum admission.

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.
