Phoenixville Farmers Market
We are so lucky to live on Mill Street in Phoenixville, PA because it’s on the same street as the weekly Phoenixville Farmers Market, so we are able to walk there every Saturday morning, rain or shine. We always pick up a variety of fresh vegetables from the various vendors and we usually pick up something for lunch AND dinner as well.
We haven’t missed a week yet getting either cookies or “swamp mix” from Sweetwater Baking Company (Chuck says they must put crack in it LOL!) and we barely go a week without grabbing a savory pie from Nomadic Pies! We have tried the salmon from Wild for Salmon (delish!), all the mushrooms from Oley Valley Mushrooms (love them!), chile pepper spice mixes from Chile Spot (hot!!), rolls and pies from Saint Peters Bakery & Cafe (yum!) and more! We are also hooked on the ribs and bbq pork from Vesta Barbecue & Catering and have even started emailing them ahead of time to put in our order (they often sell out of the ribs).
There are always a handful of non-food vendors as well and we have picked up a few unique items on occasion, including a wood-carved pepper mill, plants for our backyard, and the most awesome Easter bunny holding a basket of cracked pastel eggs filled with succulents.
It is so much fun to listen to the music, watch the children playing in the children’s area, and just soak in the atmosphere at this market.
We have never been to another market that compares to Phoenixville’s … this is definitely a very special farmers market.
The weekly family-friendly event features live music by local musicians and you might even find a Poet for Hire!
There is always a food truck or two at the market, so bring a blanket and listen to the music while you enjoy breakfast or lunch under the trees.
The Phoenixville Farmers Market, located underneath the Veterans Memorial Gay Street Bridge along French Creek, is open year round. The 2018 main season runs weekly, every Saturday, from May 5th, 2018 through November 17th, 2018 from 9 am to 1 pm with music beginning at 10 am.
Since 2002, the Phoenixville Farmers Market has helped support local agriculture by connecting local farmers with consumers. Enjoy locally grown, fresh food, and a chance to be a part of our community.
A smaller version of the market runs every Saturday between Thanksgiving and Christmas, from 10 am to 12 pm; and the Winter Market is held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays from January through April from 10 am to 12 pm.
We strongly encourage others in Phoenixville to support this market by stopping by each and every week to pick up a few items.
