Farmers’ markets provide an important setting for local farmers to sell their food directly to customers.
The markets also provide an opportunity for consumers to ask questions, learn more about where the food is grown, and discover new produce to try.
We support Philadelphia farmers’ markets by helping operators and vendors to ensure food safety standards and promote best practices.
The resources below were designed to help make every local farmers’ market as safe as it can be.
