AMERICAN FARMLAND TRUST’S
FARMERS MARKET CELEBRATION
We’re looking for the cream of the crop, the best of America’s farmers markets.
Your recommendation can earn national awards and recognition for your farmers market.
Swarthmore Farmers Market
The Swarthmore Farmers Market, which is staffed fully by adult and student volunteers, operates from mid-May until early December every Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Our intent is to be THE Saturday morning food, art, and community gathering place for people from Swarthmore and surrounding communities, to enhance the quality of life in and around Swarthmore, and to contribute to a vibrant and thriving town center.
We have a diverse and changing roster of farmers, food artisans, artists, and musicians, along with frequent visits from community/nonprofit organizations, as well as various healthy activities. Each month has a specific food and/or social justice theme, including, for example, the collection of food for food pantries, providing elder support, coat drive later in the year for homeless people, collection of toiletries/hygiene products for a locally run women’s shelter (June’s focus—netted over 77 lbs of donated items!), home safety demonstration in cooperation with the local Fire Department, writing letters to troops in action, etc.
