Yesterday, Sam and I went to the opening ceremony for the Grays Ferry farmer’s market. The farmer, Aaron, occupied Peace Park with his extensive selection of vibrant produce. Community leaders and neighborhood members gathered as several short speeches were made about the potential of the market. We were impressed with the diverse pool of shoppers, who were all excited with the prospect of fresh and local produce at their disposal. We gave out Philly Food Bucks and encouraged shoppers to eat fresh produce. Overall, it was a great success. It was exciting to see the community enthusiasm. Too bad our market only has one more week left, though we are hopeful for the spring season!
