"We are blessed with some amazing places to get staples in Northern Liberties, but there is nothing quite like a farmers market and we are ecstatic to co-host this pop-up to explore options for a year-round market next year," said Northern Liberties BID Executive Director Kristine Kennedy. "The Piazza's central location makes it ideal for hosting the market, offering convenient access for adjacent neighborhoods."

"Delicious, nutritious food should be easy to find in every neighborhood," said The Food Trust President and CEO Mark Edwards. "We're thrilled to be bringing a farmers market back to Northern Liberties, in a central location that is accessible to the entire community. We invite all neighborhood residents to come check out this pop-up event, which showcases everything The Food Trust's farmers markets have to offer."

Just in time for Thanksgiving preparations, the market will feature over a dozen vendors with farm fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy, chocolate, hyper-local brewed beer and more. Highlights include fresh produce from Huzzah Farms, garlic goods from Hayday Farms, and jams and spreads from Fifth of a Farm Creations. Plant-based enthusiasts will rejoice when they see the offerings from Dr. Brownies, and foodie favorites like Birchrun Hills Farm cheese and Lost Bread loaves will round out the offerings. Local libations will also be for sale from local neighborhood favorites Urban Village Brewing Company and Mural City Cellars.

Stay tuned for details and future plans for the expanding and growing neighborhood - and an exciting new farmers' market for the neighborhood. The potential of a regular farmers' market in Northern Liberties and the South Kensington area would fulfill a longtime need in the neighborhood and time with exciting growth and expansion of the neighborhood that will see its population nearly double by next year.

This pop-up market is coordinated by The Food Trust, which runs over a dozen markets across Philadelphia -- including Headhouse and Clark Park, two of the city's largest and most well-established outdoor markets.

For those coming to shop at the pop-up market and Second Saturday, make it a day in Northern Liberties with other events and coordinating promotions from local small businesses around the market.
