About Us

Who We Are 

Media Farmers Market is a weekly, open-air, grower/producer market featuring fresh food, locally raised and crafted.

Established in 2009 as a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization, Media Farmers Market brings area farmers, residents, and businesses together in support of the “Eat Fresh, Buy Local” movement, thereby enhancing our community and supporting our environment.  All products are raised, grown, or handmade by the vendors.  While some farms are not certified organic, most use organic practices, including Integrated Pest Management (IPM), and pasture their livestock.

Local businesses and non-profit organizations, are featured regularly.

Media Farmers Market is guided by the following core principles:

  1. All products available at the Market will be of high quality and produced, created, and/or crafted by the vendors themselves in order to maximize the economic, environmental, and social benefit to the local community;
  2. Vendors will be located within a 75-mile radius of the Borough of Media and will provide a diversity of foodstuffs and goods to local residents;
  3. The Market will serve as a community social resource, by providing opportunities for enhanced social interaction and educational programs;
  4. The Market will always strive to grow and be innovative.

 

Where We Are

You can find the Media Farmers Market on Edgemont St. between State and Front Streets.

 

When We’re Open

The Media Farmers Market is open on Sundays, May 13 through Nov. 18, from 9am to 1pm, rain or shine. In the case of dangerous weather, check our Facebook and Instagram pages for updates on the status of the Market.

 

Useful to Know

Most vendors accept credit cards.

We  participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).  Some vendors also accept Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) vouchers.

SNAP is the USDA Food Stamp program.  Benefits are used to buy food and help eligible low-income households follow diets that are more nutritious by increasing their food purchasing power at grocery stores, supermarkets, and farmers markets.  Eligible recipients receive a PA Electronic Benefits Transfer Access Card (PA Access), and this card can be used at the Market.

 

Here Is How SNAP Works:

SNAP benefits can be used at vendors selling uncooked, unprepared foods. You cannot use them towards alcohol or any foods that are considered ready-to-eat. If you’re not sure if a potential purchase qualifies, please ask the vendor or any of the volunteers at the Manager’s Table.

When using your benefits, please first stop by the Manager’s Tent and we will assist you in your purchase.
