The Penn Street Market is an open-air, seasonal farmers market in the heart of downtown Reading, PA. The Market features local farm produce, fresh meats, baked goods, locally- owned restaurants, and food trucks, and more! The Greater Reading Chamber Alliance and the Market Team are committed to hosting a variety of family and nutritional programs in partnership with The Food Trust, featuring local musicians, kids’ crafts, and highlighting community resources.
Reasons to support a local farmers market: Freshness, flavor, healthy, affordable, and great for the environment. Plus, if you shop at the Penn Street Market you are supporting local farmers and small businesses and also contributing to Downtown Reading revitalization. Not to mention sending the message that our health is important.
The Market (at participating vendors) accepts SNAP (food stamps), WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program vouchers, and Berks Farm Bucks and provide helpful nutrition information to ensure that fresh, local foods are available to everyone.
Every Thursday in June through September from 10 AM to 2 PM the community can come together to purchase fresh local fruits, vegetables, meats, and other healthy goods. When the season comes around, don’t forget to support the Penn Street Market.
