About the Market

Established in 2004 with the support of Bookhaven Used Book Store, this market is located right across from the historic Eastern State Penitentiary. The market is situated within a growing, bustling retail corridor in the Fairmount neighborhood. The Fairmount Farmers Market is now open year-round.

The Fairmount Farmers Market is now open year-round with winter hours of 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (2-2:30 reserved for seniors/immunocompromised shoppers).

Due to the snow, the Fairmount Farmers Market will be closed on Thursday, February 17th, 2021. Weather permitting, we plan to reopen next Thursday, February 25th, 2pm - 5pm. Please check back here and on The Food Trust's social media for all farmers market updates.
