I’m kind of surprised that Steelstax and the one at Campus Square would compete with one another on the same day. Especially since they are about a 1/2 mile away from one another. With the one on Tuesdays (Downtown Bethlehem one), Wednesdays (Westgate…..thanks, I didn’t even know it existed), why have competing ones on Thursdays (again, so close in proximity). The argument that people will go to both…..I don’t know… can only buy so many fresh vegetables that won’t rot.

Agreed that it’s weird they’d do the same date. At least they’re not overlapping times (Bethlehem’s is 11-3, Artsquest 3-7.) As mentioned on our Facebook page, it’d be nice if everyone could just play nice and have one big farmer’s market that was every weekday or something.
