DuBOIS — The weekly DuBois Farmers Market is a true farmers’ market where vendors grow or directly create their produce, according to organizers and vendors.
There are no authorized resellers or product brokers.
The market, which is located on the corner of Brady Street and Long Avenue in the Pershing parking lot next to Luigi’s Ristorante, is a long-standing and popular market that has been in town for more than 20 years, said market president Hans Duncan.
There are plenty of parking spaces all around the market and it is known for its friendly vendors and reasonable prices, he said.
The market includes fresh seasonal produce, handmade and artisan products, jellies and honey, soaps, goat’s milk cheese and fudge and much more.
“You’re not going to get it any fresher than what we have at the market. Most of it is picked the day before or that day,” Duncan said. “Everything is homemade or grown on site by all local farmers and artisans.”
Duncan said he expects a great season this year.
“As summer continues, more and more vendors are showing up because more and more fresh produce is being grown,” Duncan said.
Late summer means the downtown DuBois Farmers’ Market is in full swing with plenty of healthy, farm-fresh foods available for area shoppers.
Duncan encourages the public to come see what the market has to offer.
Vendors include himself, from Duncan Farms, Log Cabin Specialties from Treasure Lake, Jimmy Fiedor’s Fresh Produce from Penfield, Clinger’s Maple Syrup from Falls Creek, Peggy Gilbert from Gilbert Hill Farm in DuBois, who sells jellies and caramel and more. There is a vendor selling handmade pottery this year and another selling flowers.
