7 Best Fall Farmers’ Markets in Philly

I’ve always loved strolling through farmers’ markets and browsing through the assortments of fresh and local fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses and baked goods.

In addition to the abundance of seasonal goodies that farmers’ markets have to offer, I also enjoy the many benefits of supporting local famers’ markets like actually knowing where my food comes from, supporting local family farms and connecting with my community.

Now that it’s officially Fall and time for pumpkins, squash and gourds galore, you don’t have to quit your Farmers Market routine. I’m sharing my favorite Fall local famers’ markets with you.

  1. Well, this list makes no sense. The SRT market is a scaled-down version of Highland’s table at the year-round Fitler Square market and the Fitler Square market has other great vendors.

  2. Thanks for mentioning us in your review of the West Chester Growers Market. We think the Growers Market is fantastic. Along with the specialty vendors we have amazing farmers with the best fruits and vegetables of the season!
