Our farmstands are a seasonal operation and differ at our locations. Our Farmstand runs by the motto “fresh, local and delicious”, and is an extension of our mission to bring Philadelphians quality produce and locally prepared provisions. You’ll only see seasonal produce on our farmstand. That means that you’ll only get the freshest and most nutritious produce, that was harvested to order, and has the least possibly food miles from soil to plate. However, it also means that our selection is true to the season, so strawberries only make an appearance in early summer, and we don’t have corn in the fall.
In the spring it may be a very small market, in the summer and fall it is usually overwhelming stocked and in the winter we run less frequently but with a nice selection. Alongside our fruits and veggies, our fridge and freezer are stocked with all local items including dairy products from raw milk to cheese, eggs, freshly milled grains, meat-free proteins, and humanely and sustainably raised meats. Our pantry is stocked with locally roasted coffee, pickles, honey, preserves and more.
In June–November farmstands are Thursdays, 3–7pm & Saturdays, 10am–2pm. In December–April, they are every other Saturday, 10am–2pm.
We have a selection of locally grown produce and a pantry. In June–November farmstands are Fridays, 4–7pm. In December–April, they are every other Fridays, 4–7pm.
The produce and prepared foods on our farmstands are sourced in 3 different ways:
1. We purchase from farmers that we trust, shake hands with, and look in the eye; all within our local foodshed. We define that as 150 miles.
2. We harvest organically grown food crops at Greensgrow Farms, and you’ll see the “Greensgrow Grown” label on those items, or find them under the banner that says the same.
3. We make a line of “Greensgrow Made” prepared foods in our licensed community kitchen, made from the same produce we buy or harvest for our farmstand, so you can trust the quality of each item with our label.
