Plum’s Monday Market has returned to Plum Creek Park.

The farmer’s market was moved from the park to the borough building parking lot at 4575 New Texas Road due to the flooding of the park across the street.

Vendors noticed a drop in sales as a result of the move.

Event organizer and Plum public relations consultant Carrie DelRosso said the playground and pavilion area was cleared enough to bring the market back to its original location. However, the ballfields are still in disrepair and remain unusable as a result of the July storms.

DelRosso said the market went from four vendors to 14 since its start on July 8.

It is scheduled for 3-7 p.m. every Monday through the end of September, weather permitting.

Those expected to participate include Bridge’s Farm & Greenhouse, Marshall’s Heritage Farm, Park Street Sweets, Morning Glory Farms, Old Tin Roof Farm, Pappy’s Kettlecorn, Carter Apiary, Nolf Woodworking, The Olive Tap, Designs & Becka, Suzi’s Creations, Baked with Love, Tom’s Candy Company, Frankferd Farms and Gary’s Gourmet Produce.

Pittsburgh musician Elias Khouri will perform at the market from 4-6 p.m.

The Monday Market will have food trucks based on availability. More information about the market is available at

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.
