Farmers Market Mutt Strut

Fall’s colors are beginning to fade, and as they do things are beginning to wind down at the Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market, after another successful season in Hellertown.

The good news is that if you haven’t visited the market recently, you still have several opportunities to shop and enjoy it before the season officially ends on Sunday, Nov. 20.

After that, a handful of vendors will set up booths the following two Sundays–Nov. 27 and Dec. 4–as part of a pre-holiday market along Constitution Avenue. Participating vendors will be sharing information with their customers, both at the market and via their communication channels.

Of course, all of the vendors and volunteers for whom the Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market is a labor of love want to thank the community for their support this year.

Wedzonka

The owners of Polish food vendor Wedzonka Inc. got into the Halloween “spirit” by dressing as deranged butchers on Oct. 30. Among their business’s specialties are various flavors of handmade pierogie, kielbasa, sauerkraut and smoked salmon.

Kunigus K-9

Ofc. Steve Kunigus of the Lower Saucon Township Police Department and his K-9 partner Titus performed a demonstration at Sunday’s Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market as part of the Halloween festivities that took place.

WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING AT THE MARKET?

Sunday’s music will be provided by well-known Lehigh Valley folk singer Dave Fry.

Visitors can also get a jumpstart on holiday shopping browsing for gifts, jewelry and more with Artists in the Park; local crafters and artisans selling their wares at the market.
