Farmers’ Markets

University City District knows that farmers' markets add value to our community. Fresh and local produce picked at the peak of the season tastes better and helps to preserve our natural resources. University City is host to a growing number of farmer's markets, offering local and organic foods year round. In partnership with The Food Trust, we present the Clark Park Farmers' Market, one of Philadelphia's most popular. University City also boasts multiple other seasonal markets and food stands all around West Philadelphia.
