Bath Farmers Market kicks off its 12th season at Keystone Park May 17.

The market will be open 3-7 p.m. every Friday, rain or shine, through the end of September. A ribbon cutting will be held 4 p.m. May 17 with the Greater Bath Area Chamber of Commerce and officials from Bath Borough.

This season, the market welcomes Chartier Farms with fresh local chicken and poultry sausage and burgers from the farm in Bath. Broken Willow Winery, from Cresco, Monroe County, will be selling sweet, dry and varietal wines. Shoppers 21 and older may stop by for a sample. Also new this year is the nonprofit Quesadillas for a Cause from Clinton, N.J., which will be selling quesadillas and salads to support efforts to end hunger.

Shoppers can stop by the market booth to get their loyalty and rewards cards for the 2019 season. Vendors initial the cards for each qualifying purchase, and shoppers can use them to enter a weekly drawing for $10 in market bucks to be used at any booth.

The market’s own snow cone stand will be up and running, and many previous vendors will be returning, such as Covered Bridge Farm, Twin Maple Farms, Peanut Butter & More, Sweets N Savories, Annarella’s Bakery and Cattle Creek Farms. Estelle’s Catering will begin May 24.

Weyerbacher Brewing and kids’ crafter On Your Table will be appearing on selected dates throughout the season.
