Spring is here! Time to go to the Farmers Market, by Theresa & Timothy Minor

It is springtime again! After a long cold winter we are ready and so excited to be out again at our local farmers markets, craft shows and special events. We have enlisted our family member, Kristen Minor to handle some of the markets. We will be participating in about 5 markets this season Newtown Square Farmers Market, Media Farmers Market, Carousel Park Farmers Market, Glasgow Farmers Market and Thornton Farmers Market. The market season will run from now until late October.

We have been with the Newtown Square Farmers Market for about 5 years now. PRC Newtown Square Farmers’ Market at Mostardi’s Nursery will begin on June 3rd. It is located  at 4033 West Chester Pike, Newtown Square, PA, every Wednesday, 2:00-6:00PM, June 3 - Oct 29. The Newtown Square Farmers' Market is managed by the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC). The Mostardi family has been a tremendous support for PRC.

Media Farmers Market is a weekly, open-air, grower/producer market featuring fresh food, locally raised and crafted. Established in 2009 as a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization, Media Farmers Market brings area farmers, residents, and businesses together in support of the “Eat Fresh, Buy Local” movement, thereby enhancing our community and supporting our environment.  All products are raised, grown, or handmade by the vendors.  While some farms are not certified organic, most use organic practices, including Integrated Pest Management (IPM), and pasture their livestock. Local businesses, non-profit organizations, and performing artists are featured regularly. Media Farmers Market is located in the parking lot next to the Media Theatre, on the corner of State and Gayley Streets, in Media, PA. Open every Thursday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., rain or shine, from the second week of May through the week before Thanksgiving. The Market will be open from May 14 through November 19.

We will also be participating in the Carousel Park Farmers Market and  Glasgow Farmers Market. The NCCFMP farmers markets will run from late - May through October every Friday. And we will be attending each market on alternating Fridays. Glasgow Regional Park Farmers’ Market: is located at 2275 Pulaski Highway, Newark, DE 19702 (near the intersection of Pulaski Hwy & Rt. 896) and the Carousel Park Farmers’ Market is located at 3700 Limestone Road, Wilmington, DE 19808. 

Last but certainly not least is the Thornton Farmers Market which is open every Saturday from 11am to 2pm on Glen Mills Road between Thornton and Cheyney Roads. Just look for the flags down the street from Thornbury Park! The Thornton Farmers Market operates during the Spring to Fall growing season. They offer fresh eggs from free range chickens, organic produce, local honey, hearth baked breads, canned goods, cakes, pies, dog treats, cut flowers in arrangements, BBQ and much more. Come pet the Alpacas and learn about these fascinating animals. Fun for the whole family!

We look forward to seeing you at the market! For more information about where you can find us check out our Calendar of Events.
