Better late than never right? I figured as long as I got this in before MLK day I would be okay. How is it going out there in Philly Food Feed land? Its pretty slow this time of year for farmers' markets, although there are a few that persevere through the winter time, one of which I work at. All are on Saturdays.
Saturdays at Clark Park (10 am - 2 pm) -
This is where you can find me on Saturdays. In fact, I was working there this past Saturday and it was cold. Really cold. Thank goodness we had a sunny day or else I was sure I was going to need a black top hat and a carrot nose. That would have been okay though because there were plenty of carrots to go 'round.
Saturdays at the Piazza at Schmidt's (10 am - 2 pm) -
(From their site) - The Piazza Farmer’s Market is unmatched in size and variety with a contingent of more than 20 farmers. And—all of our farmers are one or more of the following: local, sustainably grown, ethically raised, free range, hormone free, pesticide free, organic, raw and/or grass fed. Products include vegetables and fruits, beef, raw milk, artisan cheeses, and heritage breed free range chicken eggs. Also featured are delicious prepared foods ready for shoppers to enjoy as they browse.
