We're pleased to announce the Perkasie Farmers Market will open tomorrow (Saturday, June 15) from 9 a.m. until noon at 7th and Market. After a rainy week, the weather forecast is perfect!
We've put together a nice group of vendors and will be adding more as the season progresses. If you know anyone interested in becoming a vendor, send me an email.
This is our lineup for this week:
Brumbaugh Farm (Telford)
Ed and his family has been selling fresh fruits, vegetables, and plants at the Perkasie Farmers Market since 1990. He expects to have strawberries, peas, and lettuce for sale when the market opens this week along with hanging baskets and bedding plants.
Breezy Meadows Farm (Telford)
Breezy Meadows Farm will be joining us again this year. They've added a new high tunnel to their farm to extend the growing season. They plan on having lots of fresh veggies for opening day, including zucchini, new potatoes, snow peas, lettuce, candy onions, and TOMATOES!
Hobble Hill Farm
Another great vendor who will join us this week at the opening of the market: Hobble Hill Farm, LLC, breeders of fine Suri Alpacas, the rarest of breeds. Louann and Dave Zappichi offer raw fleece, yarns, and hand-made/felted items from their own herd. Also, items from the North American Alpaca co-ops: hats, scarves, gloves, socks, felted soap, nesting balls(for your birdies!), teddy bears, and much much more!! All natural, soft, warm, hypo-allergenic, and environmentally friendly!
Happy to welcome a brand new vendor to the market. Michele Carbaugh will be selling mason jars that she has re-purposed into useful household items such as soap dispensers. She also had lids that can turn mason jars into travel cups. Sounds very cool.
Noel will be offering her homemade, scratch-baked goods again this year. In addition to a variety of artisan breads (rye, honey wheat, cinnamon raisin), Noel will be selling specialty English Muffins (plain, cinnamon raisin, cheddar cheese, and cherry walnut).
Website coming soon!
Erin Marks will show folks how to use Pampered Chef items to make delicious recipes using the fresh fruits and vegetables that will be available at the market.
Our youngest vendor will be selling her handmade duct tape rose pens and duct tape bracelets, with a portion of the proceeds going to Lupus awareness efforts.
Barb will be selling custom bird baths and butterfly baths along with hand-made girls' handbags and jewelry.
Another NEW vendor -- Krista Rosiak aka “Cupcake Queenz” will be selling about a half-dozen varieties of her amazing creations made from scratch with fresh, local ingredients.
These are not just regular everyday cupcakes, folks. They're jumbo-sized for that WOW effect. If you’ve ordered one of her cupcakes while at The Perk, you’ll know what we mean.
Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy a Krista Rosiak cupcake while you shop the market. And take home a few for the family.
Holly will be selling her Iris-folded greeting cards and cotton hand-knitted dishcloths.
