Fox Chapel Farmer's Market opening next week!

We are so excited that market season begins this Wednesday, June 12th from 3:30pm-6:30pm and happy that the market will continue into late October (every Wednesday from 3:30-6:30pm) 

The market is located at the
Shady Side Academy Senior School
423 Fox Chapel Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15238
The market is located in the first parking lot off the campus entrance drive, in front of the new McIlroy Center for Science and Innovation.


We hope to see you there, whether that be as a vendor, neighbor, friend, student, supporter of the local food system or just avoiding rush hour traffic on your way home.

Still there?
Now that I've told you the important information about the market! I'd like to take the opportunity to introduce myself and share a little bit about Shady Side Academy Farm if you are still reading by chance. 

My name is Bethany Welch Luttrell, I'm a graduate student enrolled in Chatham University's Food Studies Program and am the current Farm Education Intern at Shady Side Academy Farm for the summer. You might see me around any of the Shady Side Academy campuses, I already got a loud "MA'AM!" from the nice security guard who was doing a wonderful job protecting the students from strangers on campus. I'll also be at the SSA Farm Stand, so I hope that you stop by while at the market and introduce yourself -- I'd love to meet you!

Currently, I'm working on my thesis, I co-manage a student-driven laying hen program at Chatham University and I also work on Eden Hall Farm helping to manage the honeybees. 

          

 
Fox Chapel Farmer's Market seems pretty special to me:
No fees charged to vendors to participate?
- What a great way to support local farmers and producers and provide a nearby gathering space for the community.
Education is incorporated in the use of the market through student interns and farmers?
- What a neat way to involve students in the local food system. 

I'm so excited for the market to start -- I've never been to the Fox Chapel Farmer's Market before but have perused the Instagram (@fcfarmmarket) and saw ice cream, pot-bellied pigs on leashes, wood-fired pizza and beautiful vegetables!
Also there is apparently live music and corn hole-- so let me know if you want to perform or you want to challenge me in cornhole. 
 
SSA Farm

This week at the Fox Chapel Market, SSA Farm will be selling eggs, kale, strawberries, rhubarb, mint, garlic scapes, and chives!
Shady Side Academy Farm is focused on providing farm, garden and market education to students of all ages and growing fresh and nutritious food.
Click the blue button above for more information.

I especially wanted to make sure you get a chance to meet the new (since October) Director of SSA Farms, Anna Sekine, who also oversees the FC market, so stop by and meet her if you haven't already!
I'm so happy to be working with Anna, a fellow Food Studies graduate, learning more about garden education, growing produce for the market, facilitating the Fox Chapel market, and caring for our hens. 

Anyways, I'll cut myself off for now but I hope to see you at the Fox Chapel Farmer's Market on Wednesdays from 3:30pm-6:30pm. Please let either Anna or I know if you have any questions or need anything. 

Stay tuned for introductions of our senior school interns and vendor highlights in upcoming newsletters!

If you are a vendor with special produce, activity or event you would like to highlight, contact us at farmersmarket@shadysideacademy.org.
