The Potter County Farmers' Market every Friday from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Several local farmers will brave the heat to set up on the courthouse square in Coudersport beginning at 2:00 p.m. Friday. 

Available this week at the Potter County Farmers' Market are the following: strawberries, raspberries, currants, kale, peas in the shell, limited quantity of new potatoes, Swiss chard, red onions, Chioggia beets, string beans, hot peppers, green peppers, fresh garlic bulbs, fresh herbs including basil, dill, Italian parsley, jams, jellies, preserves, maple syrup. 

Sharon will have her painted antique maple buckets and lids. There will also be a selection of fruiting trees, shrubs and vines and locally-made potting soil (a blend of 1/3 Potter County loamy top soil, 1/3 aged manure compost and 1/3 peat moss with aragonite (sea shell flour) and Fertrell Special Starter added to the mix). 

Many of the growers accept the Pennsylvania Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) checks.

Is there any chance that the hours would change for The Farmers Market? Some of us have to work and can't make it during those limited hours.

why are the hours during the time when the majority of people are working? makes little sense.

I asked that and the problem was that the vendors in past years were sitting there pretty idle after 5 pm which surprised me too. Now I have a question -- if I buy some dill and then I dine on it, does that mean I am a dildiner? As Pastor Bernie says, think about it....

I have been two weeks in a row. Only 3 stands set up. Sad, why don't they have more people involved and where are the Amish that have been there in previous years?

As a suggestion and for better public attendance and success in sales: Always try to make this market on saturdays morning before lunchtime. For sure, people will go and buy everything for cooking during the weekend. Best time to do that: between 9AM and 12PM or 1PM.

Charge little or no set up fees for the square. Take public surveys and ask when they do shop and would shop. Center the event around the CUSTOMERS, not the vendors.

Well, if you DON'T center the event around the vendor, you just might not GET any vendors. Duh! They have very few now. Some of them come from towns away and it takes alot to get their wares ready and brought to market. The customers just have to stoll on down and buy.
