With a range of items from fresh flowers and baked goods to locally-sourced produce, it’s unlikely you’ll leave without dropping some cash. We invite you to ditch your regular grocery store for the week (sorry Trader Joe’s!) and take a hot girl walk through one of the noteworthy farmers’ markets on our guide!
1. Rittenhouse Farmers' Market
Rittenhouse Square comes alive every Tuesday and Saturday morning as local vendors line the park. This farmers’ market has everything you need to fulfill your grocery shopping list for the week. When you stop by, check out Petal Plants & Flowers, The Pasta Lab, Wild Bakery, and more!
2. University Square Farmers' Market
The small-but-mighty University Square Farmers’ Market is sandwiched in between Penn & Drexel campuses. Some of this market’s highlights include Big Sky Bakery, which offers muffins and granola, and Beechwood organics trucks with fresh seasonal fruit! If you’re a Penn student, these vendors also accept Penn Cash & Dining Dollars!
3. Clark Park Farmers' Market
This West Philly market offers a wide selection of produce all year-round. It’s one of the largest and most popular farmers’ markets in the city! Be on the lookout for some of our favorite vendors – tacos from the Don Memo Truck, locally-grown produce from Urban Girl Farms, and artisanal cheeses from Valley Milkhouse Cheese.
4. Headhouse Farmers' Market
Headhouse is a year-round Philly favorite with a generous selection of bread, soups, coffee, beer & wine, and fresh produce. Every Sunday, you can indulge in pierogis and polish snacks from Mom-Mom’s Polish Food Cart and hard cider from Ploughman Cider. You will fall in love with Headhouse!
5. Fairmount Farmers' Market
Local farmers and makers set up shop at one of Philly’s favorite farmers’ markets every Thursday evening throughout the spring and summer. Located across from Eastern State Penitentiary, this market has several unique offerings. Browse everything from Amish baked goods to Urbanstead’s fruits and vegetables, farmed by neighborhood kids!
6. Germantown Farmers' Market
Germantown farmers’ market opened in 2018 and has been jumping with vendors ever since! It is operated by Philly Forests, a BIPOC-owned small farm that is dedicated to offering Philadelphians a variety of fresh food. Be sure to stop by Juice Jawn for organic cold-pressed juice or Goodlands Food Co. for hot sauces and condiments!
