This Sunday, May 1, the Headhouse Square Farmers’ Market will kick off its fifth season. At this, Philadelphia’s largest and most popular open air farmers’ market, you’ll find all manner of herbs, pastured meat, chicken, eggs and dairy, baked goods and lots of produce. Because the growing season is still young, expect to find products like asparagus, green garlic and lots of young, tender greens.
The market is open between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. You’ll find market favorites like Culton Organics, Wild Flour Bakery and Philly Fair Trade Roasters (formerly known as Joe Coffee) as well as new vendors like Root Mass Farm and Penns Woods Winery. The good stuff goes fast, so get there early for best selection.
If you can’t make it to Headhouse this Sunday, there are also markets at Clark Park (Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.), Rittenhouse Square (Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.) and Fairmount (Thursdays, 3 – 7 p.m.). The Fairmount Market is at 22nd and Fairmount and opens for the season on Thursday, May 5.
