Walnut Hill Community Farm and Farmstand

Founded in spring 2010, The Walnut Hill Community Farm is a combination community garden, urban farm, and pocket park that you can find at 4610 Market Street in West Philadelphia (we first told you about it last summer). Managed by Philly Rooted in partnership with The Enterprise Center, it is located on a plot of land that’s owned by Septa but has been utterly transformed over the 18 months.

In their second year, the Youth Growers (students who are learning farming and business skills) at Walnut Hill are making an effort get even more involved with the community. To this end, they’ve opened two farm stands that will operate for the duration of the growing season. You can find the first farm stand on site at the farm on Tuesdays and Fridays from 3 – 6 p.m. A second stand is located on the concourse level of SEPTA’s offices (1234 Market Street) every other Wednesday (next market day is July 27) from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Walnut Hill Community Farm Stands
When: Tuesdays and Fridays, 3 – 6 p.m., alternate Wednesdays, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Where: 4610 Market Street, 1234 Market Street
Cost: pay as you go
