If you’re a Philly local or just visiting, there’s no better way to place to pick up the freshest ingredients and local fare than Philly’s neighborhood farmers market. With seasonal staples being served year-round at many locations, they are often perfectly situated in areas with plenty of parking or public transit access.

While the highlight of most farmers’ markets is, well, the produce and fruit from the rural counties surrounding Philadelphia, you can find tons of other handmade and artisanal products selling their goods at the markets. 

While many vendors frequently come and go, I’ve seen local business offering things like:

  • Organic grass-fed beef, 
  • Free-range chicken and eggs
  • Flowers and plant decor
  • Small-batch sauces and foods
  • Fresh pasta
  • Exoctic locally grown mushrooms
  • Fresh bread and baked goods
  • Sushi-grade fish
  • Small batch organic soaps
  • Local beer and ciders
  • Local spirits 
  • Prepared Food
  • Art and craft decor
  • Hand made sausage
  • Craft spices blend
  • And so much more

Aside from the local, organic food – Phillys farmer’s markets are weekly hubs for communities to bring together their neighbors to enjoy the fresh air and support local small businesses. 

Not to mention, you cannot beat the freshness of your food picked that week and a sub-50 mile trip from the farm to your plate. We have visited almost every farmer’s market in Philly and strongly recommend any of them.

Grab your reusable bags and get ready to shake hands with your farmer – here is our guide to Philadelphia’s farmer’s markets.
