Good weather months in Pittsburgh means Farmers Markets. Farm-fresh produce. Locally made products. What’s not to love?
There are a variety of markets around town each day of the week which means you can always find somewhere to grab fresh veggies and other goodies. Here’s a list of vendors we’re stoked to stalk around town as we stock our fridge and pantry –because the celery shouldn’t have all the fun stalking the farmers markets!
