The Wrightstown Farmers Market will open for the season this Saturday.
The market will be open Saturdays through November from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wrighstown Township Municipal Building parking lot, 2203 Second Street Pike.
The market will be under new management this year. Cheryl Gilmore will take over as manager, replacing market founder Robin Hoy.
Hoy has retired to spend more time with her family, an announcement from the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance said.
Gilmore voluntarily completed a rigorous training in Michigan to prepare for leadership of the farmers market. She is one of only 86 certified farmers market managers in the country, according to the foodshed alliance, which runs the market.
More than 30 local farmers and producers attend weekly to sell their products, including a variety of fresh vegetables, fruits meats, dairy and eggs from pasture-raised animals grown without hormones or antibiotics.
Shoppers can also find prepared foods, gluten free products, freshly baked breads and sweets, freshly picked fruits, raw, local honey, all natural dog products, handmade soaps, lotions and handcrafts, and locally roasted, organic coffees.
The market also features local musicians entertaining weekly and frequent chef demos, celebrations, children’s activities and educational presentations.
Goose Creek Pioneers will perform on opening day. There will be a vegetable seedling giveaway and giant bubble making for the kids.
