The local food craze has swept the nation, and with so many farmers’ markets within the city and scattered throughout the suburbs, Philadelphians can take their pick of delicious, local produce, dairy products and baked goods…even artisanal chocolate and natural beauty products!

But before you shop, there are a few things to consider. While some markets accept debit and credit cards, others are cash-only; those that are cash-only are designated below when able to be identified. And while most of the farmers that participate in these markets also accept Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program paper vouchers (which are issued to seniors or WIC recipients), SNAP/food stamps and (for Food Trust markets) Philly Food Bucks, some do not. You should check with each individual farmer before you buy.

Happy—and healthy—eating! –Chelsea Karnash
