With the height of summer finally here, locally-grown produce is rapidly ripening and the cornucopia is finding its way onto local dinner tables. A great place to pick up fresh sweet corn, tomatoes and other gifts of the season is at Hellertown’s Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market.
And don’t forget Fido!
The featured vendor for this Sunday, July 31 is Alice’s Natural Nibbles, a purveyor of all-natural dog treat products made with vegetables and single-ingredient treats baked without fillers, chemicals, preservatives or additives. Learn more about Alice’s Natural Nibbles on their website, where you can also order treats for your furry friends.
In addition to food, music is a key part of the Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market experience, which is why the market hosts a different performer each week.
Sunday’s musical performer will be S.R.G., who will perform from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
