PJ Salerno’s sentiment had been shared by many people on Saturday.
Salerno, an owner of Foothill Farm in Mahoning Township, ended up being one of many happy vendors at the Lehighton Downtown Winter Farmers Market, which shifted from Lehighton’s Lower Park into the Hofford Mill in Weissport.
“We had a good turnout, ” said Salerno. “Bambi (Elsasser, treasurer associated with the Lehighton Downtown Initiative) looks after the marketplace, and she does a job that is awesome on Facebook. Simply getting people out listed here is great; that is all her.
“And just the farmers in general help bring people straight straight right back each week. Having products that are good good, quality items. It truly means one thing towards the market whenever you’re able to own quality that is high as well as other material. ”
The big event, which Elsasser stated had been a “producer products market, ” showcased a number of homegrown, handmade and homemade products, some of which had been fast to offer down.
“I don’t even understand if it’s 10 a.m. And you will find a lot of individuals right right here, ” Elsasser stated. “This is significantly, much needed in this time around at this time.
“Our regional farmers require the help – our vendors, our regional organizations – each of them require the support. And also this is simply outstanding solution to show it. We’re extremely pleased that the Hofford Mill reached off to us, and therefore we are able to have the farmers market here. It’s great. ”
