At the Market, November 9

LOVE YOUR PARK DAY!

(Farmers Market info below)

SATURDAY, 11/9, 9:00am-12noon
Volunteer to beautify Pretzel Park! If you haven’t already signed up, you are welcome to participate; just come to the park. We will be doing the following: trash and litter cleanup; leaf and organic debris raking and pickup; and weeding, bulb and tree planting, and mulching. Gardening equipment provided. Refreshments will be served.

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
