Neighborhood Businesses Bloom at the Saturday Market

The Bloomfield Saturday Market, a program of Bloomfield Development Corporation (BDC), reopens on May 18th with a new opportunity for Bloomfield businesses to grow their customer base. New this year, the Market will provide free space on a monthly basis to small businesses based in the neighborhood. This new initiative allows the Market, which operates out of a parking lot at 5050 Liberty Ave., to better support small businesses.

The Market attracts nearly 2,000 visitors every Saturday from all over the city and creates a community gathering space for Bloomfield residents. Over 40 vendors attend including farmers, local food producers, prepared food vendors, and crafters. In conjunction with West Penn Hospital/Allegheny Health Network, patrons have access to health and wellness education each week, including free flu shots in the fall.

BDC also collaborates with a number of other local nonprofits to provide special programming, including “Pet Day” and a monthly “Share Fair,” where neighbors exchange books, clothing, and household items for free. The 25-week season runs from May 18th to November 2nd, opening at 9:00AM and closing at 1:00PM, rain or shine.

Participating businesses will receive a free vendor space at the market at up to 2 markets. They can use the space to advertise to new potential customers, promote special events at their primary location, and connect with patrons from all over the greater Pittsburgh area in a friendly community festival setting. By attending the Market, businesses have the opportunity to grow their following by accessing a new customer base.

If you are a small business owner interested in attending the Bloomfield Saturday Market, please contact the Market Manager via email at [email protected] for more information and details on how to apply.
