DESCRIPTION: Slippery Rock Farmers Market is returning to downtown Slippery Rock supporting local growers and makers. The market offers seasonal, local produce, plants, and handmade goods.
Vegetable, fruit, and flower seedlings and plants for transplanting into gardens and landscape beds will be featured at the beginning of the market season. Because all produce offered at the market is locally grown, shoppers will find a variety of fresh vegetables, herbs and fruits, throughout the summer and fall, as these mature and become available.
Vendors also will offer many fresh and preserved foods, including grass-finished beef, eggs, goat milk fudge, jellies, breads and other baked goods. Unique handcrafted items, such as natural soaps, hair and skin products, handmade clothing, jewelry, and decorative pieces will be available as well. New vendors are welcome and are encouraged to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Having been located at Rock Falls Park since 2011, the market now will be sponsored by Slippery Rock Development, Inc. The change in location will afford exciting opportunities to partner with local businesses and to maintain the market’s reputation as a friendly, community gathering place. In addition to products for sale, live music; informative speakers and displays; and activities for children will be scheduled throughout the season.

Slippery Rock Farmers Market is a producers-only market, whose mission includes promoting and supporting local agriculture and farming families, and increasing consumer appreciation for local farmers, craftspeople and artists. Thus, the products sold must be grown or made by the sellers, with only a few exceptions, e.g. for items such as chocolate, coffee or olive oil that can’t be grown or produced in the region.
