At the Market, September 21st

Alright, so usually we try to have some entertaining and silly summary of the vendors at this week’s farmers market. But this week is Parks On Tap see, a really great event in Pretzel Park. And this week my spouse upped the struggle with me to be more ‘present’ and ‘connected’ see, something never a strength in my skill set. So I’m stressed a wee bit, see? And this week is Parks On Tap, see? And I really needed a beer, see? Or maybe more than one beer, see? So all I know is I went to Parks On Tap last night and this morning woke up in the Dog Run with three pugs licking my face. So I’m running late. So just please come to our Farmers Market and come to Parks On Tap. And if you see me lying in the Dog Park at least please keep the pugs offa me.
[Editor’s note: FOPP advises drinking alcohol in moderation and don’t drink and drive. The above is a work of fiction. Besides, the writer now has court appointed couples therapy.]

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
