One of the best kept secrets in the East Liberty Farmers’ Market is the Kew Park Coffee Bar. The short version of the story is … a The Lagnese’s family, who live in Pittsburgh, takes a trip to Jamaica, visits the Kew Park Coffee Plantation and form a partnership to bring the Kew Park Coffee directly to Pittsburgh. Dave Lagnese has volunteered much of his time to bring great things to the East Liberty Farmers’ Market (plus he also donates his time to Construction Junction).
If you haven’t stopped by the East Liberty Farmer’s Market – you really should – it is across the street from the Home Depot in East Liberty and open year round. actually the Farmers Market has been in operation since 1941.
