If you want to live longer, you should eat more healthily, and one way to do that–according to most experts–is to incorporate nutrient-rich microgreens into your diet.

Doctor’s Orders is a family-operated business that sells seeds, supplies and kits for growing many different varieties of sprouts; all in the convenience of one’s own home.

With many Americans switching to or modifying plant-based diets to improve both their physical health and emotional well-being, there has also been increased interest recently in lifestyle medicine, which is something the Mueller family knows a thing or two about.

Doctor’s Orders owners Donna Mueller, D.O., C-IAYT, and Eric Mueller, D.O., are practitioners of it at their Hellertown practice, Lehigh Valley Osteopathy for Everybody LLC, and through their business Yoga Therapy of the Lehigh Valley.

The Muellers and their children have led free yoga classes at the market several times this season. They offer more information about yoga therapy at SVFM and on their website.

Stop by the Doctor’s Orders booth to learn more about how to get a jump start on a healthier lifestyle. Before long, you could be on your way to living your best life, naturally.

Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market Receives National Attention on Social Media

The market’s dog-friendliness was highlighted this week in a video featuring “interviews” with some of its regular canine visitors that was shared by People magazine on their Instagram feed (IG: @people), which has 11.6 million followers. As of Saturday, thousands had ‘paw-sitively’ reacted to it.


This Sunday’s live music will be provided by Just Jeff, and the Friends of the Hellertown Area Library will share information about their organization at the community booth.

Shop for unique gifts, home decor, jewelry, accessories and more at Artists in the Park, which features local craftspeople/artisans who have previously vended at SVFM and is now being held weekly through the end of the 2022 season. Expect a unique lineup of artisans each week. Support local makers and get your holiday shopping done early!

Mark your calendars for Halloween at the Market on Oct. 30. Highlights will include Vendor Trick-or-Treat, a caricature artist and a mutt strut with dogs in costume!

Also, market guests should be advised that the market will break down EARLY at noon on Sunday, Oct. 23, due to its location along the Hellertown Halloween Parade route.
