Penn State University and Liberty Property Trust launched a farmers market earlier this month. The market is held rain or shine in the lower parking lot of Penn State Great Valley (30 East Swedesford Road, Malvern) from 11:00 am--2:00 pm every Thursday through November. Fresh fruits and vegetables, mums, cheeses, baked goods, sandwiches, gluten free items and more are provided by local farmers and vendors. Additionally, cooking demonstrations, seasonal recipes and samples as well as workshops on health and nutrition will be offerred.
The Great Valley Corporate Park setting allows farmers to bring the market directly to the people in the convenience of their work setting--a pretty novel idea. Additional information is available at www.pennstategreatvalley.org. Be aware that many vendors only accept cash.
I haven't had an opportunity to check it out yet, but hope to get there in October. What a great way to eat healthy and support local businesses!
