Farmers’ Markets

University City is host to a growing number of farmer's markets, offering local and organic foods year round. These markets add value to our neighborhood, creating community and facilitating access to fresh and local produce. The Clark Park Farmers' Market, operated by The Food Trust, is one of the most popular markets in Philadelphia, and there are other seasonal markets and food stands throughout West Philadelphia

Clark Park

Clark Park is home to one of the largest and most well-populated farmers’ market in Philadelphia, and boasts over a dozen vendors managing tables piled high with organic fruits, heirloom vegetables, milk, eggs, cheeses, meats and more. But the Clark Park Farmers’ Market, operated by The Food Trust, is more than just an opportunity to buy food and flowers. It’s an integral neighborhood event, where neighbors and visitors come together to talk, shop, support local agriculture and meet the farmers who grow their food.  All of the farmers at the Clark Park markets accept WIC and Senior FMNP vouchers for fresh fruits and vegetables. The ACCESS/food stamps card is accepted at every stand at the market, excepting food trucks. For every $5 that customers spend using food stamp benefits, they receive a $2 Philly Food Bucks coupon that can be used on fruits and vegetables.
