Malvern Farmers Market Opened Spring 2013
The Malvern Farmers Market hosted their Grand Opening Day May 4, 2013, featuring over 25 farmers and food artisans. Every vendor at the market must grow, raise or make what they sell - this is called a "producer only" market. Taking advantage of the rich agricultural location, every farmer and market vendor is located within a 50 mile radius of Malvern. Variety is key to a great farmers market; and this market promises to be impressive, offering:
- local fruits and vegetables - the cream of the crops, organic and conventional
- pasture raised meats (beef, pork, lamb, veal) and poultry, farm fresh eggs
- dairy products including finely crafted local cheeses
- wholesome, whole grain breads
- baked goods, both sweet and savory
- handmade pasta and sauce
- local honey and maple syrup
- small batch frozen desserts
- artisan chocolates
- hummus and salsa
- jams and jellies
- locally roasted coffee
- field grown flowers
- handmade soap
- doggie treats too
A visit to the farmers market is a community event - offering something for everyone. In addition to the amazing selection of fresh and wholesome foods, the market also features weekly musical guests and activities for children to educate them about where their food comes from. During the year the market hosts a number of special events to celebrate holidays, national farmers market week and, well, what ever tickles our fancy.
Consistent with the social mission of the market, food drives will be held periodically to benefit the West Chester Food Cupboard and other organizations in need of food donations. Additionally, market space will be made available to non-profit organizations if their mission is similar to that of the market.
