We’re a few weeks into the market season and things are going great! Despite a few rainy days, East Side Market is looking better than ever. On May, 15th we opened in conjunction with Open Streets Lancaster to great success and a warm welcome from both local residents and tourists alike. A week later our very own Horseshoe Ranch brought out their baby calf along with pickle the goat and a couple of his friends for our first “Kid’s Day” of the summer (more to come). The petting zoo was certainly a highlight of that day as we all saw great success and enjoyed the family atmosphere in the beautiful Musser Park.
After a couple week break for both memorial day weekend, and a forecast of dangerous thunderstorms, East Side Market came back with a bang for Pet Day on June, 12th. With many guest vendors and weekly vendors in attendance, we boasted our fullest lineup yet and the puppies certainly came out in force to enjoy it!
Finally, just this past Sunday we hosted International Day with a focus on our vendors who offer an assortment of different ethnic cuisine. We welcomed both Upohar Ethnic Cuisines, a known community favorite and Share Northeast a local nonprofit that works with international exchange students in our community.
We hope to see you this Sunday for Community Day! Looking beyond that, we’ll be off for July 4th weekend but will be back in full force for the rest of July after that! Check out our calendar for a list of updated events. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
