Plum offers first farmers market

Bridge’s Farm in Plum.

Plum Borough is sponsoring the first farmers market at Plum Creek Park on July 8.

The event will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. and will feature produce from Bridge’s Farm and Greenhouses, a local establishment that will sell a variety of fruits and vegetables.

Other vendors include Pappy’s Kettle Corn, Oakmont Candle Works and various food trucks, including The Pub at 333.

Carrie Lewis DelRosso, the borough’s public relations consultant, said the farmers market is Plum’s first, but officials hope to garner enough popularity to keep it going on a regular basis.

“We want more community events and to get people more at the park,” she said, adding the Plum Creek Park, located at New Texas and Ross Hollow roads, was recently rebranded to attract a larger segment of the community.

The event will be free to attend and any proceeds will benefit the vendors.

For more information and to register as a vendor, call DelRosso at 412-219-7877.

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.
