WHAT'S HOT!

Exciting things are coming to the market this Saturday! F'rinstance...

Beechwood will have blueberries and most likely some cherries as well. Don’t be surprised if there are a few raspberries and apricots in the mix.

D'Emilio's Old World Ice Treats will have a new flavor from New Orleans called “Nectar Cream” aka “Pink Lady” (Cherry - Amaretto - Vanilla Bean).

Pam from Trotter Hill Alpacas will have some beautiful skeins of yarn from her Glen Mills alpacas, in a range of natural colors and weights.

Kim from Ironstone will have a fun, new, and delicious ice cream flavor: Matcha, a green tea latte (you’ve got to try her ice cream, which is ridiculously good). Not to mention their fresh chicken and pastured pork.

Kneehigh will have carrots, Persian and pickling cucumbers, and bags of washed salad mix, along with many other delicious things!

Eight Oaks Distillers, here for the first time, will have their first batch of our limited release Port Rye, which is their Pennsylvania Rye secondarily aged in Port barrels.

We welcome SNAP (EBT/ACCESS) payments, along with Food Bucks, a terrific program sponsored by The Food Trust that allows SNAP customers to get $2 in Food Bucks for every $5 in SNAP purchases and to use those Food Bucks on fruits and vegetables at the market. We also accept WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) vouchers, which provide WIC recipients and low-income seniors with fresh, nutritious, unprepared, locally grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs from approved farmers' in Pennsylvania.

Reminder that convenient parking is always available nearby on Myers Avenue and in the SEPTA lot (and no need to feed the meters on Saturday!)
