New Farmers' Market Opening at the Reading Terminal

Beginning this Sunday, May 16th, and running every Sunday until Mid-November, The Reading Terminal (in conjunction with Farm to City) will be operating a Farmers' Market. It will operate from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is directly across the street from the Terminal on 12th. According to the Reading Terminal website, there will be 14 local growers participating including:
  • Steve Bowes Family Farm – vegetables, berries, tree fruit, eggs, cut flowers, seedlings, plants
  • Derick’s Orchard – tree fruit, berries, melons, vegetables, baked goods, preserves
  • Two Gander Farm – produce, eggs, honey
It seems that everybody is getting into the Farmers' Market act and Sunday is the day du jour. The Piazza at Schmidt's in Northern Liberties and now this market in Center City. Plus we have the Headhouse on the boarder of Queen's Village. I thought Sunday was supposed to be a day of rest! So much for sleeping in. I just wish they would open up one for us Locavores in the Northeast. There are plenty of places up here that could handle 10-15 growers on a Sunday morning. Some of us up here wouldn't mind being able to take a bus to get our greens or better yet...walk there. PERISH THE THOUGHT!!!

  1. Wow, another Sunday market... I'm impressed-- Philly definitely has its fair share of farmers markets. I'm usually at the Piazza on Saturdays (wasn't that impressed with its Sunday version) so this is a nice alternative to Headhouse on Sunday. Thanks for the update!
