Northern Butler County Farmers Market

Petrolia, PA

Northern Butler County Farmers Market is a community-run farmers market located in Butler County, PA. With a focus on local products, the farmers market will offer a variety of items including fresh produce, honey, dairy, and local artisan products. 

The project, led by Butler County Community Development Corporation in partnership with Zimmerman Family Farms and Five Element Farms, will bring fresh, healthy food to a community where residents currently need to drive 30 minutes to access the closest full-service grocery store.

A $20,000 grant from the PA FFFI will be used to kick-start the market, which plans to open in spring 2021.
