Visitors should note that not all SVFM vendors are at the market the entire season, and some products are only available for a limited time. One of the market’s goals is to help improve food literacy by encouraging patrons to buy food that is fresh and in-season whenever possible.
The market is supported by generous local sponsors, which this year include Heintzelman Funeral Home Inc. (Gold), Frey’s Better Foods (Gold), Raceway Chevrolet (Silver), Saucon Source LLC (Silver), Bradford D. Wagner Attorney at Law (Bronze) and Ben Chunko, Liberty Wealth Management (Bronze). In-kind supporters of the market include Lost River Caverns, Saucon Valley Sporting Goods, the Hellertown American Legion, Christ Lutheran Hellertown, Braveheart Highland Pub and the Hellertown Area Library.
The Saucon Valley Farmers Market is open Sundays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine, from the first Sunday in May through the third Sunday in November. The market’s address is the same as the library’s: 409 Constitution Ave., Hellertown, Pa. Parking is available in the library lot and along Constitution Avenue. Seating is available at picnic tables and a port-a-potty is available on site.
Well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome at the market, which hosts live music by a different local performer each week. The market also hosts special events throughout the season, including its monthly Art in the Park, which features local artisans and craftspeople selling their wares. Art in the Park is held the fourth Sunday of each month.
