It's a Very Special Week

This week we celebrate National Farmers' Market Week.

What a wonderful time to show our support for the Markets that set up every week in so many of our many Philly neighborhoods - these are the folks we depend on for fresh, local, safe and humanely raised food.

We are very lucky in the Philadelphia region to have so many markets AND we are lucky that lead organizations have worked so hard to make those markets, and their wonderful fresh products, available to everyone.

Thanks to the Food Trust, to Farm to Table and to the Philadelphia Slow Food Movement, among others.

For my weekly shopping, thanks to the Fair Food Farmstand in the Reading Terminal for every day and for teaching me so much;  to the Headhouse Shambles Farmers Market on Sundays; to the Passyunk Market on Tuesdays; and, of course,  to the Italian Market.

What are your favorite Markets?  What have you been cooking from your favorite Markets?

Thank a Farmer - today and everyday!

  1. It is a very special week, as will all the weeks between now and the end of the local growing season. Nothing tastes better than food fresh from the farm! We are so fortunate to be surrounded by great farm markets.
