Walnut Hill Farm Stand Opens!

Farm Stand 2

The farm that Erica and Nick from Philly Rooted (and Farm to Philly!) have been working so hard at has produced its first full crops and the farm stand, in cooperation with the Enterprise Center, is open for business!

The Walnut Hill Community Farm, in collaboration with Farm to City and Common Market, is operating two farm stands this season. The farm stands are operated by our Youth Growers, who learn business skills, tend the urban farm, and sell the fresh produce back to the community. One stand is located on-site at the Community Farm (4610 Market Street), supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It runs on Tuesdays and Fridays from 3:00-6:00 PM. A second farm stand is located on the concourse level of SEPTA’s offices (1234 Market Street). This stand operates every other Wednesday (next market day is June 15th from 11:00 AM-3:00 PM).
