Marketplace is a one-stop shop to order easy-to-make meals, desserts, coffee and so much more from several businesses delivered straight to your door.

Please click this link to our own website and watch the 2 minute video to learn more. Every order you make will help support our PTSA and the more we order, the more profit we get to keep.

December’s bonus profit comes from The Cookie Shop featuring Famous 4th Street Cookie Company! Their cookies are freshly made daily at the world-famous Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia, PA. They use all natural ingredients and the dough arrives to your door so all you have to do is scoop and bake! So, check them out and know you'll be helping support Parkland’s PTSA a little extra from those shops. If you want to make your holidays a little easier, check out What A Crock, for their side dishes, soups and awesome dips to feed those extra guests! Be sure to share this link with your family and friends so they can order too. Remember, you can mix and match items from any of the stores and if you’re just curious to sample an item or two, go in on an order with friends so you can get the free shipping.
