Headhouse Farmers’ Market, and it’s reason to rejoice. Even if you don’t plan to buy anything (good luck with that), just strolling through the shambles and breathing in the fresh scents is a great way to spend your morning.
According to The Food Trust, it’s Philly’s largest outdoor market, and it has all the stars: Tom Culton with his sought-after produce (his giant squash once made it on Letterman); Aimee Olexy with her wares from Talula’s Table; Three Springs Fruit with amazing peaches and - later in the year - unrivaled Honeycrisp apples; Wild Flour Bakery with inside-out carrot cake; Griggstown Farm with perfect pot pies - it’s actually hard to stop rhapsodizing.
For the inaugural outing on May 5, White Dog Cafe founder and author Judy Wicks will be on hand, signing her new book, Good Morning, Beautiful Business. We also hear Los Taquitos de Puebla will be there with tacos al pastor, and the Lucky Old Souls truck will be slinging breakfast sandwiches and burgers. The market is open 10 AM-2 PM every Sunday throughout the season. See you there?
