Greenway Farmer’s Market - Produce, fresh bread and more
Tucked between bustling Third Street and busy Fourth Street on the Southside of Bethlehem is the Greenway. If you visit the Greenway on Friday afternoons, you will find the Greenway Farmers Market on the stretch between Tayor and Polk streets.
A variety of local farms and restaurants are represented. You can buy your lunch and enjoy it on one of the many benches lining the Greenway or take home a variety of produce, fresh bread and more. Have Dinky’s Ice Cream for dessert, and enjoy a post lunch stroll down the Greenway to enjoy beautiful flower gardens. While you’re there, you can even register to vote.
There’s a city parking lot off Taylor Street, or you can hunt out street parking.
The market is organized by the Community Action Development Corporation of Bethlehem (CADCB). Over the next few weeks, the market will feature local businesses that have graduated from the CADCB’s Start Your Business program.
“These businesses will not be selling, but they will be giving out samples,” said CADCB’s Yari Lopez. “A different business will be featured each week.”
If you have any questions while at the market, look for the staffers in bright yellow shirts, with “Market Team” on the front.
The market does not currently accept EBT/Snap cards, but if you have one, bring it to the produce stand, and show it to receive special discounts on produce.
The market’s offerings will be expanded in the coming weeks. Beyond bringing fresh food to the Southside, another goal of the market is to support small businesses during the pandemic.
The market is open from 2 to 6 p.m. Fridays, weather permitting, through Sept. 25.
