Murrysville, Delmont farmers markets will start opening in late May
There will be no lack of fresh veggies available this summer, with four farmer’s markets in Murrysville and Delmont open regularly starting in late May.
• The Murrysville Farmers Market will be open Thursdays from June through September, 3 to 7 p.m. at the Murrysville Volunteer Fire Company No. 1, 3235 Sardis Road.
Murrysville officials are also piloting a new “Artisan Market Days” program once per month June 27, July 25, Aug. 29 and Sept. 26. Artists who create one-of-a-kind hand-/machine-crafted goods that are locally designed and produced will receive a featured artisan space on the last Thursday of the month.
Applicants must submit a form with a sample photo of each type of artwork, and must declare all items are of their own creation. Applications are available at MurrysvillePARecreation.com under the “Programs & Events” tab.
• In addition, Daugherty’s Orchard farm stand, at 5593 Saltsburg Road, is open during regular business hours throughout the summer, offering produce as well as home-baked pies. For more, see DaughertysOrchards.com.
