Year-Round Markets:

  • The only farm market open on Mondays, the indoor Reading Terminal Market also happens to be a one-stop shop for everything from local produce and Amish pickles to cheeses, seafood and meals to go. While the market is open seven days a week, the Amish vendors, a huge draw for visitors and locals, sell their goods Wednesday through Saturday. Reading Terminal is actually considered a public market rather than a farmers’ market since many of the people selling produce are not the growers of the product. Sundays, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.; Mondays through Saturdays, 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.  12th & Arch Streets, (215) 922-2317, readingterminalmarket.org
  • Amish pastries, heirloom vegetables, fresh-cut flowers and dried herbs are just a few of the goodies available at the popular Clark Park Market in West Philadelphia. Thursdays, 3:00-7:00 p.m. (June through Thanksgiving); Saturdays, 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. 43rd Street & Baltimore Avenue, thefoodtrust.org, universitycity.org
  • In the stylish Northern Liberties Piazza at Schmidts complex, a twice-weekly farmers’ market sells the essentials (grass-fed beef, free-range chicken, organic vegetables, orchard fruit) and the luxuries (quail, canelés, Thai coconut chicken tacos, artisan cheese, baked goods). The Sunday market runs May through September, and the Saturday market is year-round. Saturdays and Sundays, 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. 2nd Street & Germantown Avenue, atthepiazza.com
  • The Suburban Station market is a solid season-round player with biweekly displays of IPM fruits and vegetables and beef and eggs from pastured animals. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2:30-6:30 p.m. 16th Street Concourse, between Market Street &
    John F. Kennedy Boulevard, farmtocity.org
  • Organic produce, mushrooms, maple syrup, grass-fed meats, cookies from Marci’s Morsels and raw milk fresh from the dairy are just some of the reasons to visit the weekly PhoenixvilleMarket held under the Veterans Memorial Gay Street Bridge. (Through the winter months, the market is held every other Saturday) Saturdays, 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Bridge Street & Taylor Alley, Phoenixville, phoenixvillefarmersmarket.org
  • At the bustling Rittenhouse SquareMarket, vendors cover everything from organic produce and pastured meats to artisan cheeses and gluten-free baked goods. Saturdays, 9:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. in summer; 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. in winter. Walnut Street between 18th & 19th Streets, farmtocity.org
