At the Market, August 10th

Happy National Farmers Market Week!
August 4-10, 2019

Sorry if this makes less sense than usual, it’s National Farmers Market Week and, well, there was this huge party at the barn last night, a lot of oat and wheat beer, and then the cows and the bulls got into a argument about if there is a distinctive feminist method of inquiry in sociology, it got heated, the police came….in any case, at the Market this week we have, well Farmers of course, mushrooms, bread, pickles, wine, crochet, hand-lettered gifts, Shea based Hair and Body oils, beads, crochet, hand crafted soy candles, woodworks, and the Dobson Home & School Association.

We’ve always felt that our market’s location — in Pretzel Park which includes a playground and dog run — has contributed to making the market kid-friendly, pet-friendly, and family-friendly.
We’re also convenient to public transportation: SEPTA Routes: 35, 61, Manayunk-Norristown Regional Rail (Manayunk Line) Map here
