The Meyersdale Area Merchants’ Association meets at 8am on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the G.I. Dayroom (309 Main Street, Meyersdale). Meetings are open to the public, and residents are encouraged to attend.
In early 2009, the Meyersdale Borough Council created a task force to address economic issues in the community. The initial group included business leaders, Borough representatives, and concerned citizens. They held brain-storming sessions to address the needs of the community and to identify ways to improve Meyersdale, including public meetings to gain input from citizens. For nearly a year, the group met weekly, before formally organizing as the Meyersdale Area Merchants’ Association.
One of the first association projects was formation
of the Maple City Farmers Market. In the summer of 2009, the Maple City Farmers Market opened for its first season, and continues today, with great success.
The vision of the Meyersdale Area Merchants’ Association is to promote and nurture an environment of goodwill and prosperity among businesses, citizens, and community organizations; Meyersdale Area Merchants’ Association will strive to foster, protect, and promote the commercial, industrial, civic, agricultural, tourism, and general interests of the Meyersdale area by providing progressive leadership and effective communication.
