Bushy Run Battlefield in Penn Township will host an open air market the first Saturday of each month May through September this year.

A variety of vendors will sell their wares at the open air Bushy Run Market, which is planned this spring and summer for the Bushy Run Battlefield along Route 993 in Penn Township.

The Bushy Run Battlefield Heritage Society Inc. is sponsoring the market, which will operate the first Saturday of the month, from May to September. It will be open from 8 a.m. to noon, at the site of the colonial battlefield.

The heritage society will operate a concession stand offering a limited menu. There will be free coffee and tea to visitors.

Those interested in selling wares at the market will be grouped together according to the items they are selling, the heritage society said.

Vendors will not be permitted to set up their tables after 7:30 a.m. No electricity will be provided. While visitors are admitted free of charge, vendors will pay $50 for the entire market season or $20 per individual market day.

Vendors will not be permitted to sell animals or firearms or engage in third party sales or contract sales. All of the products must change ownership the day of the market, the heritage society said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
