Folks Pack Philadelphia Farmers’ Markets For Last-Minute Thanksgiving Goodies
By Hadas Kuznits
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Food Trust helped organize a few special pre-Thanksgiving, mid-week farmers’ markets Wednesday.
“It’s very busy, but we’re all excited to be here and everybody’s really excited about just all the local products that are for sale,” Lisa Kelly, manager at the Headhouse Square Farmers’ Market, says.
Kelly says folks enjoy many aspects of the market, but the main draw is none other than the turkeys:
“Our turkey vendor is coming from outside Trenton and all of their products are pastured so people are really into that lately.”
But, of course, they have a lot of other delicious foods to offer as well:
“We also have vegetables, we have baked goods, we have pork products, we have some french pastries, cranberry sauce sold by the folks at project HOME.”
The Food Trust also held farmers’ market’s Wednesday at Clark Park in West Philadelphia and another one in Fairmount.
