Tarentum Farm Market returns with new vendors, old favorites
At least three new vendors will join the fray, along with the annual deals that include fried potato pancakes and wine.
The market will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday through October at 913 Lock St. in the church parking lot across the street.
“People love fresh vegetables and homemade breads, cakes and wine from the cellar,” said Reverend Phil Beck, pastor.
The church has hosted the market for at least five years.
This year’s program includes:
• 3 brothers and a chicken coop
• Vibo Bakery
• Gabriel’s garden
• Traditional meats
• Grimm Farm
• Cracked Egg Caterer
• Father Miro
• instead of home
• Lion’s Club
• Cavanaugh Confectionery
• Lynette’s Crazy Personalized Cakes
• Misera Farms.
• New to the market this year is Jessica Cavanaugh, a baker from Harrison who will be selling sweet treats like cupcakes, sugar cookies and flavored muffins.
For her specialty peach muffins, she uses fresh fruit “from the fishing truckwho visits the area every summer.
Beck said the market is a perfect opportunity for local entrepreneurs to showcase their products to the public.
He said the church is coordinating the market for free for vendors as a service to the community.
Beck said it’s not uncommon to see people lingering in the parking lot, visiting each other.
“The market creates a community gathering place for everyone,” he said.
