Farm-fresh food is all well and good, but who has time to actually go to a farm and pick it themselves? Not me. For those who pine for a slightly more convenient farm-to-table experience, consider this my gift to you: a list of 76 farmers’ markets in the area, where you can go hog wild over crates of fresh fruit, greens, flowers, cheese and more from local vendors.

    I’ve been compiling info from Farm to City & Food Trust into an app that lets you find markets by location, by day, and by participating vendors so it’s a lot more useful than just a list. I don’t have many from the PA & Jersey suburbs yet but I’ll be adding them in soon — this list helps a lot!. Check out the mobile site at http://www.phillyfarmersmarkets.com

    • Ben Bergman

      There are many other markets besides those run by Farm to City and the Food Trust. Just sayin’.

  • Jill

    How did you miss the original Chestnut Hill Farmers Market at Germantown and Southampton behind the CH Hotel? It’s indoors, year-round on Thurs-Fri-Sat.

  • Bob
