Looking for a farmers' market?
Most people are familiar with what's in their own backyards, but when we leave that comfort zone we can get confused. Farmers' markets fit that bill.
Through a new website offering SEPTA maps local farmers' markets that are within walking distance to local regional rail, bus, trolley or subway lines. Some even are based at SEPTA stations.
The map certainly is Philadelphia heavy, but also hits markets in towns wherever SEPTA runs lines. That includes Richardson Avenue in Langhorne, the Gay Street Bridge in Phoenixville, and the Swarthmore municipal building.
Locally, the market is spotlighted, in addition to Weavers Way in Mt. Airy and the Chestnut Hill Growers Market.
And if you are staying in Roxborough, be sure to stop by the Gorgas Park stand every Friday afternoon. Weekly, organizers from the their produce selection on a Patch blog.
