Food, Music and Folly at the Shawnee Market

The Shawnee Market is open for its third season! The Shawnee Market takes place every Tuesday from 5pm – 8pm outdoors on Shawnee’s Grand Front Lawn. There is no cost to attend the Shawnee Market and what makes this event even better is that the Community Concerts take place just adjacent to the market on the edge of the Wild and Scenic Delaware River.

The Shawnee Market focuses on providing the community an opportunity to purchase locally made and raised goods spanning from produce and pastries to soaps and jewelry. All of the items for sale at the Shawnee Market are hand-made by local suppliers. The market is part of The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort’s mission to bring awareness to the Pocono Mountain’s local offerings.

“Whenever possible, we endeavor to supply our guests and patrons with locally sourced products and ingredients”, said Rob Howell, General Manager of The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort. “The Shawnee Market allows us to showcase the region’s local farmers and goods smiths. We hope that the market is a spring board to including more Pocono-sourced produce and wares into their lives.”

Shawnee’s Summer Community Concerts are all geared up for the season and we are so very excited about another wonderful season of music shared with our community. As always, Shawnee’s Community Concert Series will take place in front of our River Sanctuary on our grand lawn brandishing the serene Delaware River as a backdrop. Our concerts are a gift the community and no admission is charged – even the bug spray is complimentary! Remember our performers love donations! The concerts take place every Tuesday from 7pm – 8pm rain or shine.

Both the Shawnee Market and the Summer Community Concert Series are family-friendly and appropriate for people of all ages.
