How to obtain our products during the Covid-19 quarantine:
The farmers' markets in NYC and Philadelphia are considered "essential"
food sources and will remain OPEN through shelter in place orders.
The Collingswood Farmers' Market will NOT be opening in May. In the meantime, our Collingswood customers are encouraged to shop with us at our year-round market at Headhouse Square in Philadelphia. As detailed below, the market has put many social distancing measures and other precautions in place to ensure a safe environment. In addition to our early spring crops, we will be offering a wide array of our home-grown, certified organic seedlings for home gardeners. Varieties will include our typical selection of potted herbs, tomatoes, peppers, and other vegetables that our Collingswood customers have come to rely on each year. Potted herbs are available now; vegetable starts will be available at the end of April/beginning of May. Parking at Headhouse is plentiful due to local bar and restaurant closures.
As of 4/4/20, the Headhouse market is requesting that customers wear the CDC-recommended cloth masks. You will see that all vendors and market staff will also be wearing masks. These extra measures are to ensure a safe shopping environment for everyone who attends the market. Headhouse is also providing a private time slot for seniors and the immunocompromised to shop from 9:30 and 10 am to help protect our most vulnerable customers.
Update 4/4/20: A number of our customers have been asking whether we will offer a pre-boxed CSA type service as a result of the Collingwood market delay and covid-19 situation. We are working on setting up a pre-boxed vegetable pick up program with a location in Collingswood and also possibly at our farm in Williamstown. This would be a weekly 1/2 bushel box (pre-paid on a monthly basis) of pre-packed vegetables from our farm. Payment would be electronic either through PayPal or Venmo, and pick up would be grab-and-go to adhere to social distancing recommendations. We will NOT be offering a buffet-style CSA pick up at the farm as we did in years past. Please revisit this page for updates on this program. We hope to finalize it during the coming week. Anticipated start: mid-May, depending on how our spring crops develop.
