Every Wednesday, through the early fall, local farmers and vendors will be in the City Hall courtyard selling local foods and goods from 11am-3pm.
Be sure to stop by the City Hall courtyard today – and every Wednesday – for fresh produce, baked goods, prepared sandwiches and salads, cut flowers, and more. In addition, each week at noon local chefs will lead cooking demonstrations to show how you can cook easy and healthy meals at home using ingredients from the market. They’ll be handing out samples of their dishes so that you can get a taste of their work. Master Gardeners from Penn State will also be on hand to answer your questions about home gardening and to offer recipes and information.
Last week’s offerings:
McCann Farm (Monroeville, NJ) – vegetables and fruit
Triple Tree Farm (Lancaster County) – cut flowers
La Baguette (Pennsauken, NJ) – baked goods
Mugshots Catering (Philadelphia) – prepared sandwiches and salads
Kit Summers (Delaware County) – salsa with locally produced ingredients

The City Hall Farmers’ Market is a partnership between the City of Philadelphia and Farm to City. Through Greenworks Philadelphia we support access to fresh, healthy and local food options. For more information on farmers’ markets in neighborhoods across Philadelphia, visit: www.farmtocity.org or www.thefoodtrust.org.
Come out to support local growers, purchase fresh foods and enjoy the bounty of summer! Whether you’re picking up some things for dinner, staying to eat, or coming by for the cooking demo, it’s a great way to spend your lunch break.
