OUR Story

It began with a seed. In this case, an idea was planted in Lansdale Borough by a group of neighborhood residents, council members and business owners. The market was originally established by volunteers in 2008, and in the first Market season in 2009 it was located on Railroad Plaza near Main and Madison Streets. Since then, the idea grew into a strong group of volunteers dedicated to the success of what had grown to be a federally recognized non-profit incorporated in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

OUR Mission

Our market is run by a Board of Directors, a group of unpaid local volunteers, legally organized as a non-profit entity.

Our mission is to maintain a seasonal farmers’ market that supports local producers of healthy, nourishing foods and quality, crafted goods. We desire to build community while providing educational programs that promote local, sustainable living.
