Glenside Farmers Market

Glenside Farmers Market is located in, you guessed it, Glenside, Montgomery County.

It’s farmers market and pick your own fruit season here in the Philadelphia area, and I’m so thrilled!  It’s also vegetable gardening season and we’re well on our way to a great one here at our house.  If you’re not into getting your hands dirty, weeding and watering a vegetable garden daily, and you want to find great local food sources for eggs and more then you’ll want to keep reading!

An all-time favorite way to support local farmers in the Delaware Valley is to visit the Glenside Farmers Market.  They are open Saturdays from 9am to 1pm May through November… so make sure you keep your Saturdays free if you’re in the area; this is a market worth visiting.  Conveniently located at the Glenside train station, the Glenside Farmers Market has various vendors offering locally grown and produced items that are healthier for your family and often organic.

Vendors include:

Christinas Pantry – handmade soy candles, bath and body products, various soups, salsas and sauces
Everich Farms Apiary – local honey, fresh brown eggs, beeswax candles and skincare products
Flint Hill Farm Educational Center – artisan cheeses, pasteurized yogurt and cream butter
Herrcastle Farm – various fruits and vegetables
Pikeland Pastured Poultry – naturally raised whole frozen chicken

Not only does the Glenside Farmers Market provide easy options for buying and eating locally, but they also incorporate a story time for the kids!  It’s a great way to get the kids interacting with one another and get them learning about the importance of buying and eating locally.

The Glenside Farmers Market is open Saturdays, May through November, from 9am to 1pm.
