If you love to do your farmers’ market shopping on Sundays, but find the crowds at Headhouse Square a little overwhelming, this weekend marks the start of an alternative. This Sunday, June 5 is the opening of the Dickinson Square Farmers’ Market in the Pennsport neighborhood.

You’ll find this market along the northwest corner of Moyamensing Avenue and Morris Streets from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. every Sunday, now through October. Darmo Family Farms, Down Home Acres, and Two Gander Farm (they make the best honey around) have signed on to participate and will be bring organic, pesticide-free fruits and vegetables, as well as eggs, flowers, honey, and other products with them each week. There are also plans to add a SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance) terminal to the market by midsummer, which will allow low-income households to use their food stamp benefits at the market.

And, if you happen to be in Pennsport this Saturday, June 4, make sure to swing by Dickinson Square for their annual Art Market and Junque Sale. It will feature artisans, live music, hula hooping competition, and quality second-hand goods. That event runs 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
