Snow or shine, Bloomfield Winter Market is open through March


A farmers market might seem like a summer thing, but in Bloomfield it's a winter thing, too.

The Bloomfield Winter Market is held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the first and third Saturdays of each month from November through March in a parking lot at 5050 Liberty Ave. The remaining market days this winter are Jan. 20, Feb. 3 and 17, and March 3 and 17. The market then goes on hiatus until it reopens on May 19.
About 25 winter vendors sell meats, hydroponic produce, winter produce such as squash and root vegetables, baked goods and hot soups. There are craft vendors who sell soap and needlepoint items, the bulk of the vendors sell food.
The Winter Market is open snow or shine; but does close if ice or extreme cold cause dangerous conditions.

An Evening with Mark Whitaker
Monday Feb 5 at 6pm 


Smoketown depicts how ambitious Southern migrants were drawn to a steel-making city on a strategic river junction; how they were shaped by its schools and a spirit of commerce with roots in the Gilded Age; and how their world was eventually destroyed by industrial decline and urban renewal. Whitaker takes readers on a rousing, revelatory journey—and offers a timely reminder that Black History is not all bleak.

Today black Pittsburgh is known as the setting for August Wilson’s famed plays about working-class strivers. But this community once had an impact on American history that rivaled the far larger black worlds of Harlem and Chicago. It published the most widely read black newspaper in the country, urging black voters to switch from the Republican to the Democratic Party and then rallying black support for World War II. It fielded two of the greatest baseball teams of the Negro Leagues and introduced Jackie Robinson to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Pittsburgh was the childhood home of jazz pioneers Billy Strayhorn, Billy Eckstine, Earl Hines, Mary Lou Williams, and Erroll Garner; Hall of Fame slugger Josh Gibson—and August Wilson himself. Some of the most glittering figures of the era were changed forever by the time they spent in the city, from Joe Louis and Satchel Paige to Duke Ellington and Lena Horne.

Pre-registration is requested. Admission is free. Register to attend.

Free parking provided at the Eleventh and Smallman Street lot.
