The NEV Natural and Organic Farmers Market, located at the Broad Street Market Plaza (Broad Street Market, Harrisburg) opened on Wednesday, June 17, 2009. The market will be open every Wednesday (we believe through November) from 2:00-??? p.m.
The purpose of the market is to bring more affordable, fresh, healthy food, including produce, grassfed poultry and meat, eggs, etc., to the urban population of Harrisburg. (NOTE: Harrisburg is something of a “food desert” currently, with only two or three real grocery stores within city limits.) The idea is to have the market open during later hours to catch residents on their way home from work.
The organizer, Rafiyqua, has worked tirelessly to organize this market, and is also hoping to organize a variety of arts events at the market.
If you are in the Harrisburg area, please help to spread the news about this market, so folks can support it.
