New! Bloomfield Saturday Market

Bloomfield Saturday Market opens this Saturday for the first time! It will be two parts farmer's market, one part weekly festival - essentially a farmer's market with a much larger community engagement component than usual. It will have a strong emphasis on locally grown, produced, and created items, and you'll also find produce, cheese, meat, oils, hummus, dog treats, prepared hot and cold foods like pizza, tea pops, and coffee, and so much more!
May 31-November 1, 9am-1pm
5050 Liberty Avenue, 15224
(The market will be in the parking lot between S. Winebiddle and Gross streets)
My friend and former neighbor, Christina Howell, is the awesome creator behind this great new venue! She says, 'We know that good health is more than just eating green veggies every day. It's being out in your community, eating a variety of good foods, and incorporating fitness into every day life."

You will be able to enjoy performances by local musicians, dancers, and even students while you shop the local produce and products offered by the vendors. Jump in and try out yoga, bellydance, golf, or soccer!
Each week they will feature one or more of the following: healthy cooking demonstrations, musicians, children's activities, safety activities like child safety seat installation help and free smoke detectors, healthy living information, and so much more.

Kick-off May 31st events will be:
  • 9:30-11:30am: Meet Sparky the Fire Dog and check out a working fire truck. Homeowners can submit their information to receive a free smoke detector by mail!
  • 9:45am: WoodFired Flatbread holds a cooking demonstration to learn how to make Garden Quiche Pizza with Lemon Sauce. If you miss the demo, stop by WoodFired Flatbread or the Information tent to pick up a copy of the recipe.
Some great upcoming events:
