Philadelphia Farmers’ Markets

Did you know that the number of farmers markets in Philadelphia has more than doubled in the last five years? In almost every corner of the city, farmers markets are serving up fresh produce, local goods, cooking classes, and food education.

Conveniently located in the shadow of City Hall, Dilworth Park Farmers’ Market sells produce, fresh bread, honey, and herbs.

Providing walkable access to affordable, healthy food was an integral part of the Greenworks Philadelphia sustainability plan, and in 2009 Greenworks set a goal of bringing local food within a 10-minute walk of 75 percent of residents (expanded to all residents in the 2012 report update).

Want to find a farmers market near you? Greenworks’ interactive map offers an interactive way to explore Philadelphia’s markets, co-ops, and more. Philly Food Finder, developed by the Philadelphia Food Policy Advisory Council, provides additional information about using SNAP benefits at the markets.
