Bath Farmers Market returns for its 11th season 3 p.m. tomorrow, May 18, at Keystone Park in historic downtown Bath. New this year, the market features three different producers of locally made spirits — Faber Liquors (gin, rum and vodka), Banter’s Hard Cider and, once a month, Weyerbacher Brewing.

The market is also excited to announce the addition of Nazareth bakery Sweets N Savories, which will offer artisan breads and danishes. Foothill Farm, of Lehighton, will be bringing assorted chemical-free produce and eggs and, later in the season, fresh blueberries.

Opening day festivities include a ribbon cutting with vendors, Borough of Bath officials and representatives from market partner Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. The market booth will be giving away free T-shirts while supplies last, $1 snow cones will be sold and Macungie Mountain Farm will be on site selling fresh lemonade infused with locally grown herbs.

Shoppers are encouraged to grab a loyalty and rewards card to begin logging their purchases to be entered into a weekly drawing for market bucks. The market booth will be accepting SNAP/EBT purchases, and those shoppers will receive up to $10 in matching Lehigh Valley fresh food bucks for use on produce.

In addition to the new offerings, the market is proud to welcome back the following vendors: Twin Maple Farms (produce), Covered Bridge Farm (produce and herbs), Cattle Creek (meats), Annarella’s Bakery (biscotti, cookies and brownies), Estelle’s Catering (hot dinners and meals to go), Peanut Butter & More (nut butters and local honey) and The Popcorn Pit (popcorn and nuts).
