Throughout the pandemic, we have followed city guidelines and best practices from farmers markets across the country to keep farmers markets as safe as possible. The City of Philadelphia recently announced changes to its COVID-19 guidelines. As a result, please take note of the following changes to our guidelines:
—Masks are recommended, but not required, for fully vaccinated vendors, customers, staff and volunteers. Masks are still required for all unvaccinated individuals.
—Crowd size and social distancing restrictions have been lifted. (That means no more —aiting in line to get in!)
—We will no longer differentiate senior/immunocompromised shopping time from public shopping time. All markets will be open to the public, including Clark Park (now open to the public Saturdays, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.) and Headhouse (now open to the public Sundays, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.).
—Sampling and cooking demonstrations are now permitted.
Farmers markets are essential retail businesses and have remained open throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Visit thefoodtrustmarkets.org for a complete listing of weekly market dates and locations, as well as information on preorder and pre-purchase processes.
About Our Markets
At the peak of the growing season, The Food Trust operates 20 farmers markets in Philadelphia, including Clark Park Farmers Market, Philly's oldest year-round market, and Headhouse Farmers Market, one of the city's largest outdoor markets.
Many of The Food Trust's farmers markets are located in neighborhoods that otherwise lack access to healthy foods; these markets accept SNAP benefits and Food Bucks to make fruits and vegetables more affordable to everyone.
