Perkasie, PA – May 16, 2024 – The highly anticipated Perkasie Farmers Market will hold the Grand Opening of its 2024 season on Saturday, June 1st. Located on 7th St, in the heart of downtown Perkasie, the market will run every Saturday from 9 AM to 12 PM, from June 1st through October 26th, bringing together the community to celebrate local agriculture, food producers, and sustainable living. 

The Grand Opening event promises a festive atmosphere with live music from local musician Julia Melito, games, giveaways and children’s activities. The market will host almost 40 vendors weekly, offering a wide array of farm-fresh vegetables, baked goods, honey, beverages, pickles, sauces, meats, flowers, and a few handcrafted items. 

The Perkasie Farmers Market prides itself on supporting local farmers and artisans. New weekly vendors include Limerick Homegrown Produce, known for their healthy, organic produce, and The Confident Baker, offering baked goods & home baking mixes made with einkorn, a superfood widely considered the oldest grain in the history of agriculture.

 The Perkasie Farmers Market is more than just a place to shop; it's a hub for community activities and entertainment. Each week, the market will host live music performances, kids’ crafts, and has a calendar of special themed market days, including Fathers Day and Pride in June, Dog Days in August and the popular Trick or Treat on 7th & Market St event in October.

 In addition to providing fresh, locally sourced food, the market is committed to fostering community engagement and promoting sustainability. This season will feature regular visits by KONA Compost, the Perkasie Garden Club and the Penn State Master Gardeners; these organizations provide education on topics such as home gardening, composting, and sustainable living practices. The market also continues to encourage shoppers to bring their own bags and containers.

  “We are incredibly excited for the 2024 season,” says Assistant Borough Manager and Market Manager, Linda Reid. “The Perkasie Farmers Market is a cherished tradition that brings us together to support local agriculture and enjoy the best food our region has to offer. This year, we’re expanding our vendor list, inviting new musicians to join us, and – as always – encouraging visitors to eat and shop at our Perkasie Borough small businesses.”

 The Perkasie Farmers Market invites everyone to join in the Grand Opening Celebration on June 1st and experience the joy of connecting with local farmers, artisans, and neighbors.
