Farmers Market at the Fountain

May 23, 2018


Farmers Market begins on Wednesday, May 23, 2018. From 3pm to 7pm enjoy shopping the market at the Fountain on East Passyunk Ave.

Come celebrate the return of the Singing Fountain and the weekly Fountain Farmers' Market on Wed May 23rd. Each Wednesday, from 3:00pm to 7:00pm the area around 11th and Tasker will be transformed into an outdoor pop-up market with local produce, cheese, bread and other vendors organized by Farm To City. This outdoor marketplace will kick-off for the season with specials at neighboring businesses, plus live music. This will also be the first "official day" of the Singing Fountain for the season. The water is on and the benches are calling your name - come out to our community's central meeting spot for a night of local farm-fresh shopping, mixing/mingling with your neighbors and local specials and deals. See you on the Ave!
