Farmers market

A church along Frankstown Road will host its sixth-annual farmer’s market starting June 11.

Mt. Hope Presbyterian Church at 12106 Frankstown Road will welcome visitors on its lawn every Tuesday from 3 to 7 p.m. through September. Available for purchase will be fresh produce from two local farmers and other items from crafters and various vendors.

Food trucks will also make some appearances on special dates, a new addition to the weekly market:

• June 18: Dad’s Pub and Grub

• June 25: PGH Crepes

• July 9: Pittsburgh Smokehouse

• July 23: The Coop Chicken and Waffles

• Aug. 6, 27: Pittsburgh Smokehouse

• Sept. 10, 28: Pittsburgh Smokehouse

Farmers from Plum and Penn Hills will set up stands throughout the summer, making available fresh fruits and vegetables, said Jan Yobp, a market organizer and Mt. Hope congregant.

A local musician will also make an appearance every week to play guitar and a nonprofit organization that reaches children with dolls at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

“It’s a small, community farmer’s market,” Yobp said, adding that there will be vendors selling jams and jellies, essential oils, flavored cooking oils, Asian food, jewelry, coffee and children’s books.

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.
