Farmers Market Update: Lansdale, Pennsylvania

by Becky Geremia and Alex Felts

The Lansdale Farmers Market is a newer market. This is only its second year, but the quality they deliver is fantastic. Lansdale is a suburb of Philadelphia, PA. The market is hosted in Railroad Plaza every Saturday from June to November.

My brother and I have been loyal customers since it began. We both are big supporters of the revitalization of Lansdale and have enjoyed seeing the patronage coming to our town through the Lansdale Farmers Market.

The requirement of being a vendor is that you sell only what you produce. All products sold at the market must be grown, baked, crafted by the seller and must be done locally. The products vary but produce, meat, wine, breads, plants, herbs, cupcakes, and even furniture are for purchase at the market.

We begin the morning walking the few short blocks from my house to Railroad Plaza. We start with a stop by the Tabora Farm and Orchard stand, where my brother always gets breakfast, an orange cranberry muffin and my son gets a sweet treat, a happy face cookie.

We continue our walk with a quick preview and then set our sights on buying. We have been hooked on corn and peaches all summer long. Now that fall is just around the corner, apples, squash, and pears are plentiful. A great buy is the all natural anti itch soap and the novelty soaps from Green Street Luxuries. This year, special kids events (bouncy house, crafts, story time, birthday cake, etc.) are scheduled too.

At home, it is a decision what to make first. While my son enjoys cutting the ends off the beans, my brother lights up the grill to cook us up some steaks. Now… if only we could find an occasion to pop the jalepano wine from Boyd’s!
