This spring, take your weekly produce shopping alfresco.
One of the city’s largest outdoor farmers’ markets, The Food Trust’s Headhouse Farmers’ Market, opens for the season this Sunday, May 4.
Starting this Sunday and running every Sunday through the fall, the South Street Shambles at 2nd and Lombard streets house more than 40 food distributor’s collections of local food from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Food Trust, the same folks who operate the awesome Night Market Philadelphia, founded the Headhouse Market in 2007 and it has evolved into one of the city’s most popular seasonal markets.
Look for locally grown seasonal produce from such regional farms as Blooming Glen Farm, Beechwood Orchards, Culton Farm and more.
Highlights include house-made sausages and gourmet dips from Talula’s Table, hard cider from Frecon Farms, cakes, pastries and freshly baked bread from Wildflour Bakery, cheese, veal, beef and pork from Birchrun Hills Farm and vegetables and herbs from Weavers Way.
Plus, those who just want to arrive and nosh, fresh tacos are made on-site by Los Taquitos de Puebla and fresh lemonade is available from Made in the Shade.
The full list of vendors is available here.
Local food distributors return to the Headhouse Farmers’ Market every Sunday throughout the season.
