Farmers markets will begin opening in the Star’s coverage area 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.

Down the road in Delmont, borough residents will also have two markets from which to choose.

• The borough’s farmers market will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays from June to September at the Rose Wigfield Parklet, 27 Greensburg St. in Delmont.

Interested vendors can apply by emailing [email protected]. The fee is $25, and vendors must have a certificate of insurance and any applicable licenses and permits for products being sold.

• Tractor Supply at 725 Manor Road will also host a market, 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays from May 22 to Oct. 30.

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.
