Welcome to the 2016 Farmers Market season! Here’s a listing of all the farmers markets in Bucks County and nearby counties.
Most farmers’ markets in Bucks County are now selling a wide array of goods, all grown or produced in Bucks or nearby. Products like delicious baked goods (including cookies, breads, pies and more); Grass-fed beef, pasture-raised pork, poultry, and lamb; eggs, cheeses and yogurt from pastured animals; local unprocessed raw honey, maple syrup and beeswax candles; flowers and plants; jams, jellies, condiments and sauces; organic, fair trade, locally roasted coffees; prepared foods, hand-made soaps and lotions, artisan and handcrafted goods, and, of course, locally grown produce.

Let’s not forget the great year-round farmers’ markets in Bucks.
The Doylestown Food Co-op in Doylestown Borough offers locally sourced (within 100 miles) produce, baked goods, meats, dairy, bulk goods, locally roasted organic coffee and so much more. You don’t have to be a member to shop there (but it’s a good idea to support it).
None Such Farm Market in Buckingham provides meats, cheeses, baked goods, grocery items, plants, and fresh produce from their farm across the street.
Blue Moon Acres, also in Buckingham, sells their microgreens, grown in Buckingham, and vegetables from their Pennington farm on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 am to 4 pm.
Sandy Ridge Farm Market in Doylestown Township is a year-round market focused on providing locally sourced products, including produce from their own farm.
Maximuck’s Farm Market, also in Doylestown, offers an array of produce and locally sourced products too, including their own vegetables and beef.
The indoor Newtown Farmers’ Market has been a mainstay in Newtown for years, with a diverse group of vendors from Amish, to Middle Eastern, to Asian and Mexican.
In Ivyland, Tanners Bros. Dairy Market offers their own meat and dairy products (and ice cream!), and nicely priced produce (sometimes local).
Carroll’s Seafood & Produce in Plumsteadville carries produce, local milk, and a good selection of fish. Likewise, Bolton’s in Silverdale. In addition to local produce, you can get their fresh, hormone-free, antibiotic-free poultry year-round, raised on their farm adjacent to the store.
Trauger’s in Kintersville carries a huge variety of fruit and vegetables from their 9th generation-owned farm.
To find more local farm stands and markets, check out the Fresh From Bucks County Farms Guide on the website of the Penn State Cooperative Extension, Bucks County. If you want to know where you can do “pick-your-own” produce, or who sells locally raised beef, it’s a great resource. According to the guide, the 2007 Census of Agricultural has ranked Bucks County as 20th in the nation in the category of Direct Sales by Farmers to Consumers for Human Consumption. Aren’t we lucky?
