Farmers Market Opens For The Season

Farmers market opens for the season

The Headhouse Square Farmers’ Market kicked  off its fifth season.

It is  Philadelphia’s largest and most popular open air farmers’ market.Here you can find all herbs, pastured meat, chicken, eggs and dairy, baked goods and lots of produce.

Because the growing season is still young, expect to find products like asparagus, green garlic and lots of young, tender greens.

The market is open between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The good stuff goes fast, so get there early for best selection. If you can’t make it to Headhouse this Sunday, there are also markets at Clark Park (Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.), Fairmount (Thursdays, 3 – 7 p.m.). The Fairmount Market is at 22nd and Fairmount.

Sundays, May 1 through December 18, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

2nd and Lombard Streets. More info: www.thefoodtrust.org

The Rittenhouse Square Farmers Marke officially stretching the market out along two sides of the Square, so that it spans both Walnut Street between 18th and 19th Streets, and the length of 18th Street south of Walnut. Last summer, they moved a few vendors to that 18th Street stretch in the middle of the season.

Here are some of the vendors you can expect to see along 18th Street: Triple Tree Flowers, Blue Mountain Vineyard, John & Kira’s Chocolates, Market Day Canele and Frecon Farms. There will also be the occasional special guest set up with these heavy hitters, including folks like Better Butter, who make some of the best peanut butter we’ve eaten recently.

Rittenhouse Square, 18th and Walnut Streets. Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. currently, hours shift to 9:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.
