Ligonier Country Market's dedication to 'make it, bake it, grow it' won a fan favorite poster design award again this year.
Wayne Shaffer, known for his classic soft rock and country music, will perform Saturday at the Ligonier Country Market.

Ligonier Country Market’ s “bake it, make it, grow it” philosophy will be on full display Saturday, as the market offers freshly grown or locally made food, shopping for arts and crafts, and entertainment on what is expected to be a very warm day.

Solo acoustic guitar player Wayne Shaffer will play classic soft rock and country songs as patrons mingle and visit the vendors. His repertoire includes cover songs from The Eagles, Exile, Beatles, Jimmy Buffet, Alan Jackson, Gordon Lightfoot, James Taylor, The Drifters, The Temptations, Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan, according to his website.

Representatives of the Westmoreland County Food Bank also plan to be on site for the June 30 market, sharing more information about the nonprofit organization.

On June 26, the food bank lost more than 3,000 pounds of food and a truck after it caught fire in North Huntingdon.

Daisy Mae will again host a kids’ craft in the children’s garden, one that steers away from typical crafts, according to a market news release.

Participants will visit the Fort Fries booth to learn how potatoes grow and turn into the fries available for purchase at the market.

Kids will have a chance to cut fries and give them a free taste test,.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
