Tuesday Night Farmer’s Market Through 2013 Season at The Valley Preferred Cycling Center

May 28, 2013

The Valley Preferred Cycling Center is proud to announce the addition of a farmer’s market every Tuesday Night, starting June 4th and continuing throughout the 2013 season.  The idea, originally created by Hilda Patton, Chairperson of Valley Preferred Cycling Center’s Board of Directors, is to invite local farmers to set up in the plaza area each Tuesday night before the Fuji Super Tuesday Pro-Am Series and Bear Creek Future Stars Series.  What started as an idea to bring more people to Valley Preferred Cycling Center, has evolved into a way to bring the entire Lehigh Valley together, not only to enjoy great racing action, but to work toward a healthier, more sustainable community for years to come. With a multitude of Lehigh Valley farmers looking to market their products, what better way to involve the community, Valley Preferred Cycling Center fans, and support local farmers?

The market will be a one stop shopping experience, offering a wide array of fresh, organic goods.  Vendors include Ironstone Creamery, offering goat cheeses, yogurt, and smoothies, Charlotte Baker, offering fresh artisan breads and baked goods, Brooke-Lee Farms, offering fresh produce, herbs, and jams, Markel Mountain Farm, offering farm fresh eggs and chicken, and many more.

The market will be held every Tuesday, June through August, from 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM. Locals are invited to come support local farmers, load up on fresh, healthy food, and watch some exciting racing action. Opening day, Tuesday June 4th, will also feature a raffle with great prizes, and the first 10 guests of the market will receive an insulated, reusable shopping bag. For questions about the market, or if you want to become a vendor, please contact Market Manager Valerie Garcia, at moc.evilnull@2aicraglav
