Farmers market Saturday promises to be a basket full of food and fun.


The event is slated for 10 am – 2 pm at the Main Street Pavilion, 139 South Main Street, Washington, PA. Featuring 43 local food, alcohol and artisan vendors in one location, this Farmers Market offers a bounty of fresh Easter fare and takes the work out of shopping local.


Guests can enjoy visits with the Easter Bunny and a one-of-a-kind Easter egg hunt for children – and adults!


Shoppers can enjoy a leisurely stroll around the home-grown food and artisan products; explore a jaw-dropping selection of local merchandise; “Meet the Makers” of the region’s most delicious food items; and even enjoy a cocktail or beer while they shop.


Making its debut during the event will be spirits vendor Burgess & Burgess. The company’s rum and tequila will be featured in cocktails served by the Parched Pony, a portable bar that will be parked outside The Marketplace at Emerald Valley. Other featured local spirits will include products from Red Pump Spirits, Ridge Runner and The Washington Brewing Company.


The Spring Farmers Market is hosted by The Marketplace at Emerald Valley, the area’s premier source for quality farm-to-table products. Co-hosts include The Ivy Green and Main Street Farmer's Market.
