Fox Chapel Farmers Market Opens at Shady Side Academy
– The Fox Chapel Farmers Market at Shady Side Academy will open for its sixth season on Wednesday, June 15, 2016. The market is located in the first parking lot on the SSA Senior School campus, located at 423 Fox Chapel Rd., Fox Chapel, and will be open every Wednesday from 3-6 p.m. from June 15 to Oct. 26, 2016.
The market features locally sourced, seasonal produce, food and specialty items from farms, vendors and food trucks within a 120-mile radius of campus, including Shady Side Academy’s own on-campus farm. In addition to fresh fruits and vegetables, vendors offer flowers, grass-fed meat, honey, olive oil, hummus, pepperoni rolls, pickles, homemade pasta sauce, granola, kettle corn, pastries, artwork and jewelry. It’s a great place to enjoy dinner or a snack while playing corn hole and listening to live music on a warm summer afternoon!
Market vendors for 2016 include Clean Green Generation, Hanna's Honey, Hello Hummus, Ideal Grain Free Granola, India and Daisy Fiber Arts, Ink Personality, Kona Ice, North Woods Ranch, Oak Hill Kettle Corn, Old Tin Roof, Olive & Marlowe, The Pickled Chef, Pisarcik Greenhouses & Flower Farm, PGH Crepes, Randita's Organic Vegan Café, Rolling Pepperoni, Sabika Jewelry, Santarcangelo Specialties and Small Batch Sauces, South Side BBQ Company, Stickler’s Ice Pop Company, SSA Farm, Sturges Orchards and Warrior King Pastries. Also, Cutitta Chiropractic will offer on-site massages on select market dates.
A unique aspect of the Fox Chapel Farmers Market is that it is managed in part by Shady Side Academy students and features produce from the school’s on-campus farm. SSA junior and returning student market manager Zac Coughlin (White Oak) has helped to plan and organize every aspect of this year’s market, from logistics to vendor relations to marketing. Interviews are currently underway for additional student market managers for 2016.
