Customers walk among the dozens of stands selling and displaying produce, handmade goods and other items during the weekly at Ligonier Country Market. Opening day is May 18.

As preparations begin for the Ligonier Country Market to open its season on May 18, volunteers are welcome to attend a cleanup day at the Loyalhanna Watershed Association Farm, where the market is held.

The cleanup will take place at 9 a.m. May 4 (rain date May 11), says Cari Frei, market executive director.

Market vendors, staff and board members will be on hand to pull weeds, erect fencing, mark parking spaces and perform other routine maintenance.

“This year marks our 44th season, and we’ll be getting the grounds ready for another eventful and exciting year for shoppers, vendors and our community,” says Frei.

Along with hosting more than 130 farm, craft and prepared food and drink vendors each Saturday during its season, the Ligonier Country Market offers a full slate of special features and events, including children’s activities and live music.

Individuals or organizations interested in participating in cleanup day can contact Frei at 724-858-7894 or by email at [email protected].

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
