Satisfy your appetite for fresh-picked fruits and vegetables in 2022 by visiting four Farmers’ Markets presented by the City of Pittsburgh Office of Special Events.  All markets sell farm-fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, cheese and baked goods, while several locations also sell flowers, small gifts and hot prepared foods to go.

The Squirrel Hill market opens on Sunday, May 15, while the Northside location opens on Friday, May 20.  Carrick opens on Wednesday, June 1, and East End on Monday, June 6.

"We're excited to announce that this year our East End market is relocating just a few blocks down the street to beautiful Liberty Green Park," said Brian Katze, Manager of the City of Pittsburgh Office of Special Events.  "Located at the intersection of East Liberty and Larimer neighborhoods, this convenient spot features a plaza, open lawn, playground and plenty of parking, making it an ideal gathering space each Monday afternoon for individuals, families and a wide variety of farmers, food purveyors and vendors."

Hours for two of the locations -- East End and Carrick --  will become 3:30 - 6:30 p.m. weekly in 2022.
