Bona Fide Bellevue stands with those in our community and around the world who are peacefully protesting racial injustice, including those who are reaffirming that Black Lives Matter. We are taking this opportunity to rededicate ourselves to listening to minoritized members of our borough. We strive to create genuine dialogue around the ideas of race and representation, and to take meaningful actions to better reflect the needs of all our citizens.
Who We Are:
Our mission is to celebrate Bellevue’s unique community and welcome others to join us as we cultivate a more vibrant place to live, worship and shop.
On behalf of our group of engaged citizens invested in the growth, diversity, and beauty of our borough, we invite you to live, worship, and shop in Bona Fide Bellevue.
Recognize the distinctive combination of features that make Bellevue a prime representation of neighborhood living in the Pittsburgh area.
Value all viewpoints and encourage an open exchange of ideas and dialogue between all members of our community.
Focus on fostering our thriving residential and business districts through community-driven improvement.
Building a safe and friendly community for people from all walks of life who live, work, and play in Bellevue.
Welcome community participation and partnership by individuals, organizations, and local government.
Building a Better Bellevue Since 2008
In 2008, a group of enthusiastic citizens met to envision how they could reinvigorate Bellevue and make it one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Pittsburgh. Together, the community and Bona Fide Bellevue have experienced many successes over the past years. We look forward to even more in the bright future. We encourage you, our neighbor, to become involved in making our vision for Bellevue a reality.
Celebrate the return of the Farmers Market to Bayne Park
We're excited to celebrate our return to Bayne Park for the 2021 market season, but we need your help! Purchase the 2021 edition of the Bellevue Farmers Market yard sign and help us get the word out about our new (old!) location while helping to support the work we do in the community.
Bellevue Farmers Market
The Bellevue Farmers Market is held throughout the summer every Wednesday, 3-7 p.m. Local vendors offer a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and foodstuffs as well as handcrafted items. There are activities for kids and adults. The Market is currently closed for the season. You can sign up for email alerts to get more Farmers Market information and updates on other Bona Fide Bellevue Programs.
