Farmers Market approved!

We are happy to announce that the Media Farmers Market will become a reality, after the Media Borough Council voted on April 15th to approve the market! There was great support from many Media residents, and we are so happy that all the hard work has come to fruition. In just a couple of weeks, we’ll be enjoying a farmers’ market right in Media!

Now the real work begins of firming up our vendors, hiring the market manager and getting the word out. We are really excited about the wonderful producers who have come forward. We will soon be enjoying local vegetables and fruits, bread, meats and dairy, local honey, and perhaps soaps and yarn as well.

We anticipate having some entertainment from local musicians as well as a featured Media business each week, and we hope to see you at the first market and many to follow.

    Hi Christine, we will definitely have organic farmers. Some of the growers we are considering use organic practices but are not ‘certified organic’ because it is so costly to become certified. But definitely most of the growers use organic practices. Check back soon for the final list of vendors.

    This is great. When will you open?

    Billy, all of us are volunteers, except the newly hired market manager (more on that soon). We would love for you to join us! Our site is brand new so check back soon for official contact info, or come on out to the market on opening day and introduce yourself.

    Steve, we’re opening on May 13, from 3-7 pm. All the info is under the ‘info’ tab.
