The Market Square Farmers Market is expanding!

The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership announced this evening that the popular market, which runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursdays, is expanding from Market Square into the adjoining PPG Place walkway between there and Fourth Avenue.

According to the group, "The expansion will allow for new vendors to be added to the mix and the opportunity to offer wine tasting from several locally producing wineries."

New vendors include:

Joyce’s Copper Kettle Fudge

Edible Earth Farm

Breezy Hill Farm

Quiroz Farm

Aunt Carol’s Gourmet Dips

6 Mile Cellars

Greendance Winery (a market veteran)

That means there are about 30 vendors, including some that appear only on certain dates.

The market, which was closed this past week because of rainy weather, is to be back this week with an performance, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., by Gregory Macklin. There will be no market on July 4.
