Reminder to all shoppers

Pittsburgh’s last public market house was demolished in 1965 to make way for development on the North Side, greatly reducing the opportunities for local farmers and artisans to market their wares. Now, a new take on this time honored notion is manifesting at the old Produce Terminal on Smallman St. in the Strip District. From our good friends at Neighbors in the Strip —

For a special preview of the market, come down on Labor Day weekend, September 3, 4 and 5 to meet the vendors and shop till your heart’s content and then return on September 10, 11 and 12 for the Grand Opening Festivities which will provide fun for every member of the family. Keep watching the Pittsburgh Public Market Website and Facebook page for more information as the big day approaches.

You’ll find over 40 vendors in the Public Market, some seasonal, but most year-round. You’ll find some old friends, and meet many new and exciting businesses to introduce you to new taste sensations and offer unique merchandise to spice up your life. Check the ever-growing list of vendors, you’re bound to find something you can’t live without. We’ll be introducing you to our vendors in the upcoming months, so check back often to learn more about this very special group.

All of this sounds like a great addition to the city. I am looking forward to exploring what the Public Market will offer.
