Marketplace off to a fresh start
July 9, 2013
Connor Dymond, 2, of Shavertown, enjoys a peach that his mom bought him Tuesday — opening day of the second annual Summer Marketplace at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre Township. Rosalie Eby of Pittston enjoys a fresh made doughnut at the Marketplace. In addition to fresh local produce, the marketplace offers an array of vendors selling such wares as jewelry, tie-dye shirts and make-up. Attendees can also visit any of several prepared food trucks and listen to live music while they eat or shop. Steve Poremba, the director of marketing at Mohegan Sun Arena, described the event as, “Another opportunity to offer more local products to the community.” The marketplace is open 11 a.m. t0 6 p.m. every Tuesday through Aug. 27 in the parking lot of Mohegan Sun Arena, with different entertainment and giveaways each week.
