The market occurs every Sunday 10 am - 2 pm May through October. We are located at the Pump House at 880 Waterfront drive in Homestead/Munhall. The Pump House is a historic landmark marking the site of the 1892 Battle of Homestead. The location brings high traffic to the market, as it is located adjacent to the Waterfront retail and residential complex, and is directly on the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail, providing a trailhead and parking for bikers.
Every Sunday is different, but you can find some great artsy items such as jewelry, photography, tie-dye clothing, fiber arts, homemade jellies and biscotti and other foods, handpicked fruits and veggies, and entertainment....AND check out this great building which survived the razing of much of Pittsburgh's steel history. Look down inside the Pump House to see the large pumps which sent the cooling waters of the Monongahela River to the nearby steel mills. Old steel mill artifacts are found here. The Carrie Furnace steel mill can be seen across the river, too!
Great new stretch of biking/walking trail around the bend! Many bikers check out the Pump House every Sunday. Plenty of parking.
The Pump House is run by Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area. www.riversofsteel.com for further info
Find us just past Lowe's Home Improvement in The Waterfront and right along the Great Allegheny Passage!
