Looking for a farmers' market?
Most people are familiar with what's in their own backyards, but when we leave that comfort zone we can get confused. Farmers' markets fit that bill.
Through a new website offering SEPTA maps local farmers' markets that are within walking distance to local regional rail, bus, trolley or subway lines. Some even are based at SEPTA stations.
The map certainly is Philadelphia heavy, but also hits markets in towns wherever SEPTA runs lines. That includes Richardson Avenue in Langhorne, the Gay Street Bridge in Phoenixville, and the Swarthmore municipal building.
Locally, riders can take the 104 bus toward West Chester University or the 120 bus toward Cheyney University to the Newtown Square Farmers' Market, just make sure to get off the stop in front of Mostardi Nursery off of West Chester Pike/Rt. 3. Read about the new location of the local farmers' market here.
Be sure to stop by the new farmers' market location every Wednesday afternoon, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
