Quakertown Farmers Market Announces Easter Bunny Arrival and 39th Annual Egg Hunt
Quakertown Farmer's Market announced this week that the Easter Bunny will arrive at the farmer's market on Saturday, April 5, at 10 a.m. and will be available for picture taking on April 5, 6, 12, 13, 17, 18 and 19 at the Bunny Booth located in Department #353A.
The Easter Bunny is asking the children who visit him, if they are able to donate a canned vegetable or canned fruit. The Easter Bunny promises to load up his Easter basket full of donations before he leaves Quakertown to prepare for Easter and hop on over to the Quakertown Food Pantry and drop off all donations to help our needy neighbors have an Eggsceptional Easter!
As a special incentive for shoppers this year, Quakertown Farmers Market is offering an Easter holiday photo special : Buy two color photos with the Easter Bunny for $3.49 each and get one color photo free! (Must be the same image.)
The 39th Annual Easter Egg Hunt will be held the weekend before Easter on Saturday, April 12, and will begin promptly at 1 p.m. Participants big and small are reminded to arrive early and to bring a basket! The Easter Bunny and the Quakertown Farmers Market have prepared more than 1,000 prize eggs and more than 15,000 candy-filled eggs this year in anticipation of the eager participants.
The hunt area is located next to the north entrance and directional signs will be posted the day of the event. Age categories include 0-3, 4-6, 7-9, 55+ and a special needs hunt area. Through the continued generosity of the Quakertown Farmers Market, all hunt participants also receive a free participation gift for simply taking part in the hunt event.
