Where to Get Fresh Produce Near Home

15th October 2020

As health concerns remain a top priority, many of us have shifted how we do our food shopping and adapted to new safety protocols. While trips to the grocery store may be fewer and farther between, you can still get fresh food right near your The Victor apartment, all while remaining safe and socially distant, as you’re located just minutes from one of the region’s most renowned food markets.

The Headhouse Farmers Market, less than 15 minutes from your The Victor apartment in Old City Philadelphia, is one of the largest markets in the region, setting up shop every Sunday in picturesque and historic Headhouse Square. More than 50 vendors are involved in the event, most of which are weekly exhibitors, while several rotate throughout the month. While many of the vendors offer fresh produce, offering lots of options for all the fruits and veggies on your list, produce is just the beginning. Other merchants specialize in products like artisan breads, high-quality meats and cheeses, gourmet dips, baked goods, soups, coffee and much more. Wines, spirits and cideries are also well-represented if you need to restock your beverage cart at your The Victor apartment. And, a number of vendors offer handcrafted goods, skincare products, jams and honeys and other giftable items so, if you’re looking to get a jump on your holiday shopping, this is a great place to do it.

While the market is large, it has prioritized customer safety throughout the pandemic. Seniors and immunocompromised shoppers are encouraged to arrive at 9:30 a.m. before the 10 a.m. start. Nearly half of the vendors also offer advanced ordering, so you can place your entire order online days ahead of time then swing by the market to grab your goods and get back to your The Victor apartment to start cooking.

With farmers markets like Headhouse right near home, you can ditch the grocery store and stock up the fridge in an open-air setting, all while giving back to the local community.
