REMINDER: Today, Monday, Sept. 24, is the final Caste Village Farmer's Market of 2012. You can still purchase Honeycrisp apples, tomatoes and other fresh produce or grab a convenient takeout dinner. Plus, mums and pumpkins are in stock along with many other items.
Mondays in Whitehall Borough are just different during the summer—for a good reason.
Starting on June 4, the annual Farmer's Market in Caste Village will bring a bevy of entrepreneurs and customers to the Caste parking lot every Monday from 3 to 7 p.m. to sell and buy food goods, including homemade treats and fresh and often locally grown produce. The event runs through Sept. 24.
The first 200 customers on Opening Day will receive a free grocery tote bag—perfect for collecting goods at the market.
Vendors include Chuck Wagon (selling salsa), Annie's Apple Butter (selling apple butter and miniature pies), Bartsch's Gardens (flowers), The Dancing Bean (coffee and tea), Prior's Tap & Tavern (hot sausage sliders and chicken tenders) and many others.
Other goods available from some Caste Farmer's Market mainstays will be wine, cheese, pasta, biscotti, bread, jams, pierogies, tacos, barbecue and much more.
The Whitehall market has been quite successful over the years for both customers and companies.
"The vendors are really from everywhere," Whitehall Recreation Director Kelly Joyce said on Opening Day last year. "They come from all around. It's a great market. They love it, they love the people, the people love them, and they keep coming back."
