Find Fresh Food at Local Farmers’ Markets

Pittsburghers know that the best way to shop for groceries is to take a trip to the farmers’ market. Living in Pittsburgh, you have so many great options to choose from! Listen to local musicians like Debbi Pace & Friends and The Weathered Road while shopping at the Main Street Farmers’ Market in Washington, buy everything from local honey to fresh-cut flowers at the Market Square Farmers’ Market, and support local farmers at one of the Citiparks Farmers’ Markets located throughout the city.

And great news for Canonsburg residents: The Canonsburg Farmers’ Market is back! It was last held in the early 2000s, but it is back on a regular basis starting May 5 this year.
