TTOC works to promote all the Farmers' Markets along the Passage. Here is a link describing the markets:
TTOC is working in partnership with Buy Local - FayPenn Economic Development Council, Connellsville Cultural Trust, and the City of Connellsville to coordinate the Connellsville Farmer and Artisan Market to be held every Saturday from July 3 - September 4. The market is held in Yough River Park in Connellsville from 8:00am to 1:00pm. TTOC will be selling produce from the Connellsville Community Gardens to raise money to go back in the market and gardens.
In 2009 TTOC and the Connellsville Cultural Trust hosted a small market on Sunday nights in conjunction with the Lions Summer Concert series. The market was started at this event because the concert series was a known event that had drew people into town on Sunday night. The decision was made to move the market in 2010 to a more traditional time of Saturday morning and in the River Park due to a location that is accessible by community residents and trail users.
TTOC is excited to work with the market because southwestern Pennsylvania is a rich agriculture area and there is an unfulfilled niche for more direct agriculture sales. TTOC looks forward to developing plans for CSA's for individuals, bed and breakfasts, and restaurants.
