7 Pittsburgh Farmers’ Markets Open Through the Fall

Fall brings new ingredients into the kitchen spotlight: fresh, farm-grown ingredients such as apples, pumpkins, squash, and so much more. What better place to get these autumn delicacies than hand-picked at a farmers’ market? Thankfully, many markets in Pittsburgh are still open to suit your harvest needs. However, since the days are getting shorter, get out there NOW to partake of the bounty before farmers’ market season comes to an end.

Carrick Farmers Market

On Wednesdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Carrick allows residents to buy fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers. Plus, there are other learning resources to explore for community members. 

East End Farmers Market 

Taking place in Liberty Green Park, the East End Farmers Market runs Mondays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Whether you’re looking for fresh pressed juices or authentic Mediterranean food, there’s something for everyone. 

Squirrel Hill Farmers Market

Squirrel Hill is known for the culture-based small businesses it brings to the city, and its farmers’ market is no different. The market is filled with booths that specialize in authentic clothing, agriculture, and fresh produce — Sundays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

North Side Farmers Market

Allegheny Commons Park is home to the North Side Farmers Market, giving families a chance to explore the urban-based outdoors while shopping. Fridays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., you can find tons of organic produce, freshly brewed coffee, and even handmade biscuits. 

Market Square Farmers Market

While smack-dab in the heart of Downtown is an unusual spot for a farmers’ market, don’t be fooled; it’s just as bustling as any other on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There are many vendors with ready-made food, fresh ingredients, and flowers, and the market even holds live entertainment every week.

Lawrenceville Farmers Market

On Tuesdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., this farmers’ market is all about accessibility for affordable, local foods. The community is the key focus of the market, and there is even a special masked shopping time from 3 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., which requires all shoppers to wear masks to keep those at risk safe.

Bloomfield Saturday Market

Taking place on Liberty Avenue, Bloomfield brings lots of variety on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There are handmade soaps, locally brewed beer, and fresh cheese and meats for sale. The market doesn’t stop after November, either. Instead, it transitions to a winter market, taking place on the first and third Saturday of each month.
