The 2016 market season is over! See you all in Mid-May 2017 - details/specifics/exciting plans to unfold!

A (very) brief reflection...

All of us who help run the farmers market want to thank all of you, our wonderful visitors, for coming to the market in 2016 whether on your own or with family, friends, and pups; for supporting our vendors by purchasing all manner of edible and artistic things; for supporting our amazing musicians and artists, as well as many local community groups, social benefit efforts, and health-building activities; and for allowing your precious little ones to participate in various kids' activities.

And the deepest gratitude to our many volunteers without whom the market just wouldn't go. And the same goes, of course, for our amazing, hard-working vendors!

And, hey, we made the news recently! In the Swarthmorean, "Were you one among 12,327 this year? That’s how many visitors browsed and shopped at the Swarthmore Farmers Market. On average, that’s more than 400 per market. Market manager Andy Rosen and activities coordinator Pat Francher thanked the scads of volunteer, students and adults who made it such a successful summer, as well as key organizers like music coordinator Clair Oaks, artist coordinator and webmaster Martha Perkins, Mel Jurist, who organized kids activities, and newsletter editor Daria Duda."

Hungering for some great locally-grown or locally-produced foods between now and next May? Well, try the Swarthmore Co-op or some sister Farm to City markets open during the winter on Saturdays, including Rittenhouse, Bryn Mawr, and Chestnut Hill.

Would also love to hear any ideas you might have for new/additional 2017 features/offerings, which we will be happy to consider. You can contact us via email at marketmanager@swarthmorefarmersmarket.org  or via any of the social media channels noted below.

Happy holidays!!
