Coopersburg Farmers’ Market Debuts
The Coopersburg Commons has debuted the Market at Coopersburg Commons, a year-round farmers market running from noon until 6 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays. Located at 202 South Third Street (Route 309), in Coopersburg, the Market is a unique collection of quality vendors and artisan shop owners conceptualized by Ed Verba and Chuck Bickert, of Sustainable Country Gentlemen, LLC.
Sustainable Country Gentlemen source high-quality, in-season produce from a five county area of Eastern Pennsylvania for market. Building relationships with farmers that farm great products but have no desire or resource to take their products to market is what Verba and Bickert scour the 75-mile radius to find. They bring the highest quality products to market that would otherwise go undiscovered. A step beyond the traditional ‘producer only’ farmers’ markets, the two find this method to be superior and more diverse.
Included in their Market at Coopersburg Commons are other like-minded small business owners that produce baked goods, soaps, jewelry, baskets, repurposed items, fiber arts, and artisan designs. The Market also offers a series of free seminars and affordable classes on soap making, weaving, spinning and design.
