The Food Trust, a nonprofit founded in 1992, started out by conducting nutrition education classes for children at Reading Terminal Market. After the Trust opened its first farmers’ market at Tasker Homes in Grays Ferry, they began working with communities to develop lasting and stable sources of affordable foods.
They strive to make healthy food available to all. As part of that mission, they have established local farmers markets throughout the city and on Tuesday, July 26th, they are coming to Frankford at the corner of Bridge Street and Frankford Avenue.
It will run every Tuesday from 2pm-6pm. There will be two vendors there: Hands on the Earth Farm and Quaff Meadows. Both will have a delicious variety of fruits and vegetables as well as pasture-raised lamb provided by Quaff Meadows! The market accepts cash, Access cards, WIC & Senior vouchers, and Philly Food Bucks (a $2 voucher given out for every $5 a person spends on their Access card).
Attention shoppers, I know you are out there. I’ll be up there on Tuesday to take your picture. Come out and check the market out and then chime in with a comment on what you think.
