FARMER’S MARKET BEGINS MAY 20
SLIPPERY ROCK – The success of last
summer’s Slippery Rock Farmer’s Market, organized by
Slippery Rock University students, has prompted organizers to
establish the market again beginning May 20. It will run every
Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, through Oct. 28.
Local vendors will sell produce, eggs, meat,
honey as well as handcrafted goods in the parking lot of Village
Park on New Castle Street.
Robert A. Macoskey Center for Sustainable Systems Education and
Research coordinates the market, operated by graduate students in
the sustainable systems program and local growers. Call
724-738-4050 for more information.
