THIS WEEKEND 6.7.2014: Farmers’ Market Opening Day and Riverfront Picnic!

The Lawrenceville Farmers’ Market is back for its 4th year on June 7th from 12:30p – 4:00p.  The day will be celebrated with our Opening Day Pig Roast, courtesy of Butcher on Butler, and special event partnership with Lawrenceville United and the Lawrenceville Corporation, the Picnic at the 10th Ward Riverfront.

The Lawrenceville Farmers’ Market

The Lawrenceville Farmers’ Market is held every Saturday afternoon from 12:30p – 4:00p in the Goodwill parking lot, 118 52nd Street, June through October.  The market will host nearly a dozen local growers and producers.  The selections will include seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables, local meats, and delicious treats.

The market is open weekly June through October, but each week brings exciting opportunities, besides the great vendors.  Every month you can expect:

  • Fun Comes First!  The first Saturday of every month will offer picnic style lunches, artisanal demonstrations and kids’ activities.
  • Second Saturday Sale!  On the second Saturday of every month, we’re partnering up with the Neighborhood Flea to bring handmade crafts, goods and artwork to the market!
  • Saturday is for Growing!  On the third Saturdays local food means fresh food for the generations.  A variety of gardening classes and demonstrations through the Lawrenceville Organic Community Gardens as well as activities for children and adults will be offered.
  • Here’s to your Health!  Fourth Saturdays of the month feature free monthly health screening and a chair massage provided by Cutitta Chiropractic or check out one of our nutrition based cooking classes!

Picnic at the 10th Ward Riverfront

The Picnic is an initiative that stemmed from recent planning efforts from the 10th Ward Community Plan.  Visitors are encourage to bring a blanket or chair, grab some food from Butcher on Butler’s pig roast at the Farmer’s Market, and take the short walk down Harrison Street to McCandless Ave for a community picnic.  Click here for a map of the area.

The Picnic will run from 1p – 7p with food trucks arriving after the market is closed.  Click here for a flyer of the event.
