The 2014 Dickinson Square Park Farmers' Market is open.  The Farmers are back, and this will mark the 4th year for this Market, which as seen steady growth throughout the years.

This year we'll have:

Our good friends from Darmo Family Farms with produce as it comes into season.

Our dear buds at Two Gander Farms, offering seasonal produce and multiple varieties of greens plus mushrooms and local honey.

The folks with Anita's Guacamole, bringing a variety of fresh guacamoles.

Green Street Coffee, serving freshly brewed coffee.

Stoudts Wonderful Good Bread + Cheese, bringing a secction of truly wonderful bread and cheese for your nourishment.  

As in past years, the Farmers provide strictly what is growing throughout the Summer.  For example, expect tomatoes and corn starting in mid-late July.  Before then, they have fresh spinich, radishes, bok choi, lettuce(s), several varieties of kale, onions, garlic, honey, and much more; towards the Fall, look for the squashes and root vegetables. They bring what's fresh and just picked, depending upon what they've harvested that week.

This is a really great place to gather, chat with the Farmers and find out exactly where your food comes from, and see your neighboros, too.

Welcome to Dickinson Square Park, one of Philadelphia's great public spaces. Dickinson Square is located in the Pennsport section of South Philadelphia, and provides safe, comfortable and pleasing open space in a densely populated neighborhood.

Dickinson Square Park features several basketball courts, swing sets, jungle gym equipment, and large shade trees on 3 acres of classic turn-of-the-century park design.

Please feel free to visit soon and often. Grab lunch or dinner at one of the nearby shops. Come and see another side of South Philly, and discover that the neighborhood is more than the Italian Market and the Sports Complex.
