About the Fair Food Farmstand
Located in the Reading Terminal Market, the Fair Food Farmstand carries a wide variety of products from more than 90 sustainable farms and food producers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, including urban farms within the city of Philadelphia. We emphasize local and artisanal foods from small-scale farms and producers, like humanely and pasture-raised meats, poultry and eggs; organic and specialty fruits and vegetables; and raw milk cheeses.
Launched in 2003 to increase access to local food, the Farmstand offers the product mix of the best farmers markets with the convenience and accessibility of a grocery store. The Farmstand is open 7 days a week year-round, providing a steady wholesale market to our vendors and demonstrating the agricultural bounty of our region.
