The mission of the Bethlehem Farmer’s Market is:
The primary mission of the Bethlehem Farmers’ Market at Campus Square is to provide a safe and clean environment in which local farmers and vendors are able to sell their products to the members of the Bethlehem and greater Lehigh Valley communities. In doing so, the Bethlehem Farmers’ Market also provides a space in which local Southside and Lehigh University community members can come together, and seeks to facilitate the interaction and integration of these two groups at a market that offers a unique shopping and lunch experience. Central to the success of the market is the education of community members. The Bethlehem Farmers’ Market strives to highlight the importance of proper nutrition and inform our patrons of the economic and social benefits of buying locally, from producer-only vendors. The market aims to select vendors who offer products that both appeal to our customers and abide by the Buy Fresh, Buy Local guidelines of the Greater Lehigh Valley branch. The Bethlehem Farmers’ Market supports Lehigh University’s Campus Sustainability Plan and Master Plan.
