The second annual City of Pleasantville Bayview Summer Series will be kicking off Wednesday, June 8, from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. with the return of the City Center Farmers Market, which will run every Wednesday through Sept. 28.
The City Center Farmers Market will feature farm produce and handcrafted items from local vendors. It be located at Pleasantville’s new city parking lot and 28 W. Washington Ave., which is just one block away from the Pleasantville Bus Terminal and steps away from the city’s public library and redeveloped shopping district.
“The Bayview Summer Series is an exciting and fun-filled program that we are proud to be continuing and expanding in 2016,” Pleasantville Mayor Jesse L. Tweedle Sr. says. “The City Center’s Farmers Market is a great event for families. It brings tourism to our city and promotes a thriving community.”
Farmers markets have long been a highlight of summer programs in cities across the nation, providing affordable and delicious seasonal produce to locals and visitors alike. Last summer, vendors at the City Center Farmers Market offered raw honey, organic coffee, fresh flowers, refreshing water ice and a variety of lunchtime treats ranging from breakfast sandwiches to BBQ.
Another highlight of last year’s Bayview Summer Series returns on Saturday, June 25 — the Sunset Wine Tasting, held at Lakes Bay Marina on Bayview Avenue in Pleasantville. The upscale evening party showcases skyline views of Atlantic City at dusk and is paired with samples of the area’s finest wine vendors.
New Bayview Summer Series events will be announced in the near future. For more information, visit BayviewSummerSeries.com or call Jackie Amado-Belton, Pleasantville’s director of economic development, at 609-677-4925, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
