Larimer – A Neighborhood with Food Access Issues Gets a Farmers Market

A lot is happening in this East End community. The Larimer Concensus Group and the Larimer Green Team have been working hard to bring access to food and agriculture to this neighborhood. Miss Betty Lane manages the African Healing Garden and—with Miss Donna—is a force behind a lot of the efforts to bring change through food.

A big victory is the addition of a new monthly Farmers Market—3-7 p.m. on the fourth Sunday of every month, June 23, July 28, Aug. 25, Sept. 22, Oct. 27 and Nov. 24. Larimer Avenue Greenspace at Larimer Avenue and Carver Street.

There are a number of projects in development to move Larimer forward and to shape its future. Food is a big part of this vision, so look out for more to come.

Welcome to Lincoln-Lemington-Belmar!

This trinomial neighborhood is a standout! Not only does it have 3 names, but is one of Pittsburgh’s steepest and actually spans the Allegheny River. Take a look here.

Here’s a little bio on this borough:

This neighborhood on the city’s NE edge has a long history. Originally part of Homewood, it was home to the Homewood Driving Park (known as Belmar Racetrack) and Pittsburgh’s first golf course, Belmar Golf Course, opened in 1899.

The area has a suburban feel and is lush with greenery, so you will feel far, far away from the bustle of the city.

I mean!
