Philly's Second Street Farmers' Market
The good news is that all the foods were locally produced. We bought onions from Conchohauken, which is located about 10 miles outside of Philly. We also bought swiss chard, rainier cherries, squash, zucchini, and a chicken. The swiss chard was from Roxbourough, PA, about 7 miles away; the cherries, squash, and zucchini were from from Hammond, NJ, about 25 miles away; and the grass-fed chicken was raised in Chester County, which is about 50 miles away from Philly.
Geez, it's easy to eat locally-grown, organic food in Philly!!
Tomorrow, Sean and I are going to check-out the Headhouse Farmers' Market, which is making its debut in Old City, a historic district in Philly. Sweet! In the meantime, feel free to see more pictures taken at the farmers' market by clicking on flickr photo.
