** OPEN-AIR MARKET CONTINUES **

We are so excited to be offering live, open-air markets this season! The market will be held outdoors;  there will be proper spacing between vendor stands and a hand washing station will be available. Restrooms will NOT be available.

The August 10 market hours will be from 5-7:30pm, rain or shine. The market committee is taking proper precautions to ensure everyone’s safety at the market, but we do ask the following when visiting the market:

  • Please wear a mask at all times.
  • Shop solo! If you’re able, please come alone to the market.
  • Please don’t touch any food or product until after you’ve purchased it.
  • Remember to practice social distancing.

We encourage you to reach out to vendors before the market to pre-order your food and products to ensure a quick shopping trip.

Any questions can be directed to antietamfarmersmarket@gmail.com.

Upcoming 2020 market dates are Monday, August 24, September 21, October 19, November 16, and December 21.

SANDY’S COOKIE COMPANY

August started off raining cats and dogs, so we started thinking about “fur babies”. Do you have a cat that just “had you at meow”? Or a pup that just makes life better? We LOVE our Grandpuppies and thought we would honor them this week…on a cookie! Tag us in a photo with your SCC cookie or cake and your four-legged friends!

The Cake Cups were a huge hit, so we are bringing them again! Vanilla Oreo (Vanilla Cake, BC Icing and Crushed Vanilla Oreo Cookies), Coconut (Vanilla Cake, BC Icing and Coconut Flakes), and M&M (Chocolate Cake, BC Icing and M&M’s).  Our biscotti flavors are Lemon, Pina Colada, and S’more.

Chocolate Cake w/BC Icing, Lemon Cake w/Lemon BC Icing, Chocolate Oreo Cake, and Vanilla Cake w/BC Icing are the cake slice choices.  Gourmet Rice Krispie Treats, Assorted Cookie Bags, our Signature Cookies, as well as masks, will be available, too!

Sandy’s Cookie Company will be INSIDE the Rec Center.  Call us at 610-921-3148, if you would like to preorder.  Not necessary, but greatly appreciated!  (It’s a great way to guarantee you get your favorite goodies!)

Please be sure to wish my husband a Happy Birthday!  (It was a monumental one!) And, don’t forget to “Like” and follow us on Facebook for updates!  Stay safe!  Stay healthy!
