Wilkes-Barre's 2017 Farmers' Market to Open

Schedule of Events just released

WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)  The Wilkes-Barre Farmers' Market will open on June 29th for a new season.

The City of Wilkes-Barre just released the schedule of events for this season.  The market will be set up on Public Square in Downtown Wilkes-Barre.

Mayor Tony George is proud to announce that the 2017 City of Wilkes-Barre Farmers’ Market will open for the season on Thursday June 29th at 10 AM. The market will be open every Thursday through November 16th, from 10 AM to 4 PM.

June 29th Opening Day:

·         Opening Day ceremonies will be hosted by Mayor Tony George beginning at 10 AM.

·         Between 10 AM and 2PM, The PA Dairymen and the American Dairy Association North East will help CEO’s Weinberg Food Bank provide free Farm Show milkshakes at the Wilkes-Barre Farmers’ Market.
