The Newtown Square Farmers' Market, managed by the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC), now calls West Chester Pike home.

Founded in 1939, the PRC focuses on environmental health and resource conservation, according to the organization's website

Market manager Carol Butler of the PRC said the location upgrade offers better parking and visibility.

"We can make this a market that continues to grow in customers and vendors," said Butler. 

Here are the details on the vendors at the market and the foods/products they have to offer:

What a great experience. Quickly stopped by after work, what a pleasure. Had a small water ice, perfect on a hot afternoon. Picked up some sweets and the best tomatoes. Perfect choices. Highly recommend. Thank you Mostardi's.
