We are still looking for a meat vendor, and would love to have dairy products. Our fees have been lowered this year, we will have spaces available for one Wednesday a month vendors, and we have a new manager, Anna Kochersperger!
About Anna: Anna is a Boalsburg native who has been growing, farming, and serving food in one way or another since returning to the area in 2009. She worked in the fields and greenhouses at Tait Farm, and served at Duffy's Tavern before starting Rothrock Botanicals this winter. As a board member of the Harris Township Community Garden she has enjoyed working within the community, and looks forward to contributing to the Lemont Market.
The LVA has added copper gutters to both of our buildings last spring so that shopping on rainy days will be more comfortable for vendors and customers.
