Farmers markets are essential retail businesses and will remain open throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Visit individual market pages for information on farmers' pre-order and pre-purchase processes, as well as weekly cancellations and other updates.
The Food Trust has been notified that a customer who attended Fitler Square Farmers Market between the hours of 1:15-1:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 10, and Headhouse Farmers Market from 12:45-1 p.m. on Sunday, April 11, has tested positive for COVID-19.
Although this customer likely poses minimal risk of exposure to others (due to being in an outdoor setting for a short period of time and following safety protocols set forth by The Food Trust, including distancing and mask-wearing), it is with an abundance of caution that this information is shared with our community for contact tracing purposes.
As always, our primary goal is to ensure that customers, vendors, staff and volunteers remain safe at our markets. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
At the peak of the growing season, The Food Trust operates 20 farmers markets in Philadelphia, including Clark Park Farmers Market, Philly's oldest year-round market, and Headhouse Farmers Market, one of the city's largest outdoor markets.
Many of The Food Trust's farmers markets are located in neighborhoods that otherwise lack access to healthy foods; these markets accept SNAP benefits and Food Bucks to make fruits and vegetables more affordable to everyone. Looking for a farmers market near you that accepts Food Bucks? Check out our 2020 Farmers Market Guide.
