Wilkinsburg will be alive on Thursdays beginning June 18th throughout the summer with the Wilkinsburg Thursday Open Market and Art in the Park. The Wilkinsburg Thursday Open Market, sponsored by the Wilkinsburg Chamber of Commerce and formally known as the Farmer's Market, is held from 3-6pm every Thursday in the South Avenue Methodist Church parking lot at 733 Ross Avenue. Farmers, crafters, artisans, and prepared food vendors are all involved in this year's open market. As a member of Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture, PASA, the Wilkinsburg Thursday Open Market is embracing their slogan "Buy Fresh, Buy Local, Buy Art". Non-GMO produce will be available from the Farmer's Association, McElhinny Farms, and Jodikinos Farm & Greenhouse. Check out the beautiful summer gifts from MetaMorph Jewelry by Sarah Daigneault and bring the kids for henna and face painting by Halfmoon Body Art by Hanna Wilford. Travel to Cuba and Germany by stopping by the prepared food vendors Salud and Berlin Street Food when you get hungry while discovering all the market has to offer. More vendors and artists of all genres are welcome to join in the festivities by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Transportation from Douglas Plaza Apartments sponsored by Community LIFE will be available. Seniors are welcome to sign up in the East and West buildings.
The WTOM is also a participant in the Fresh Access Food Bucks program through Just Harvest. For every $5 that a shopper spends on their EBT card, they will receive an additional $2 in bonus tokens which can be used to purchase fruits and vegetables. SNAP, debit, and cash will also be accepted.
To enhance this year's market even more, works by local artists will be seen in the business district. A Bob Ziller installation will be exhibited at the corner of South Ave and Wood St., rotating murals will be seen on Ross Ave, and other exciting works are planned throughout the season.
After the Wilkinsburg Thursday Open Market, enjoy live music, food, and art on Thursdays from 6:30-8:30pm in the Penn Avenue Parklet located on Penn Avenue between Wood St and Center St. This event is held every Thursday between June 18th and August 27th (except July 2nd) sponsored by the Wilkinsburg Borough and Wilkinsburg Community Development Corporation.
Come experience it all on Thursdays from 3-8:30pm!
