Pittsburg Farmer’s Market begins May 8

PITTSBURG, TX (KLTV) - Released by the Camp County Chamber of Commerce:

PITTSBURG, TX – The Pittsburg Downtown Farmer's Market gets underway May 8. The Camp County Chamber of Commerce and Pittsburg Main Street are sponsoring the market.

The Farmer's Market will be open every Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon or until sellout at Jefferson and Tapp Streets, next to the Pittsburg Police Department. Vendors may sell fruits and vegetables, flowers, plants, herbs, eggs, canned items such as jams, jellies, salsa, etc., baked goods and other specialty food products.

"We are asking vendors to sign up right away so we will be able to offer a wide variety of items for local shoppers," said Lynda Stringer, chamber executive director. "We also want to encourage shoppers to get out early to take advantage of the open air market and its selection of fresh, locally grown produce."

The market is great opportunity for the local growers to have a prime location to sell their items right off of the main downtown street. It is also a way to draw more people to downtown Pittsburg to see what it has to offer, from great restaurants and boutiques to antiques, fine clothing and jewelry to unique museums and historic architecture.

Vendor spaces are free; however, vendors must obtain a city peddler's permit and fill out a Famer's Market Vendor application. Both forms will be available at the Chamber of Commerce office and at the Pittsburg Police Department.
