Farmer's Market Season

Fresh Fare at Philadelphia Farm Markets

As the days get warmer, you’ll notice a variety of farmers’ markets popping up throughout the city. Grab your re-usable shopping bag and take in the sights, sounds and tastes of a bustling market.
Wherever you roam, from April to October, you’re bound to run into a farmers’ market. The stalls are chockfull of fresh bounty, straight from local vendors and near-by farms. Here are few to check out:

  • Headhouse Market, 2nd and Lombard streets: This market is a haven for food-lovers. The heritage house, built in 1805, was originally an old firehouse and now not only houses a variety of farmers’ tables, bakery stalls and gourmet vendors — popular restaurant Talula’s Garden has a spot here — but you’ll also find a number of food trucks offering a wide variety of lunch options.
  • Rittenhouse Farmers Market: Open year-round, this market by the Square has a large selection of meat, cheeses, winter veggies and baked goods. Summer brings a variety of fresh produce along with fruit jams and local honey.
  • Fitler Square: The star of this small Saturday market is Brogue Hydroponics, a farm that uses cutting-edge technology to produce fresh and wholesome produce pesticide-free. Also be sure to pick up some grass-fed beef and lamb, fair trade coffee and some fresh-from-the-oven pies and tarts.
  • Reading Terminal Market: The star of Center City Philadelphia, this 118-year-old, year-round indoor market boasts over 80 merchants selling fresh produce, breads, meat and fish along with a wide variety of gourmet prepared foods that are perfect for a quick lunch on the go, all just steps from the Pennsylvania Convention Center. You can also get a number of Amish specialties and crafts and jewelry all made locally.
