Fox Chapel Farmers Market

Dear Market Community, 

It is with deep sadness that I share some difficult decisions that have been made regarding the Fox Chapel Farmers Market. 

The market has been canceled for the 2020 season and will remain closed indefinitely. Between the market’s declining attendance over the past few seasons and the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve decided now is the right time to end the market’s terrific nine-year run at Shady Side. My role as Director of Farms will also end on June 30, 2020. 

Over the past two years, I have had the pleasure of working with so many amazing local vendors, farmers, musicians, nonprofit partners, Chatham University interns, and customers. I have felt the overwhelming love and gratitude from our supporters every step of the way, and I want to express my thanks. 

Thank you for supporting and growing our community. Thank you for understanding and believing in our mission. Thank you for your resiliency during this difficult time. I know that these changes may be emotional for many, and I am here to listen and answer any questions that may arise.  


Anna Sekine
Director of Farms
