The first Night Market was held in May. The weather forecast
that night called for a downpour, Hickey said, causing
some vendors to cancel, but an impressive number of people
still showed up to see what it was all about.
The second market in June featured Westmoreland County

Organic Farm, based out of Greensburg, selling fresh vegetables
Other vendors included Hunt and Gather Style Design

market to the sell.
He also appreciates that the organizers are prioritizing
artisans and producers of locally-made goods over vendors
representing national companies.
The July Night Market was the last one scheduled for the
area behind the courthouse. Beginning in August, the location
moves to The Westmoreland Museum of Art for events
on Aug. 28, Sept. 25 and Oct. 23.

“We definitely hope to do it next year,” she said. “People
are already asking to do it weekly and I don’t think that will
happen, but we’ll see. We just want to have an event that’s a
little different from what we have in our area.”
