Penn Street Market Season Begins June 6
The 2019 season of the Penn Street Market kicks off on June 6. The open-air, seasonal Farmers’ Market in the heart of downtown Reading, open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., every Thursday, from June 6 through September 5, features local farm produce, fresh meats, baked goods, locally-owned restaurant stands, 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 and kids’ crafts, while also highlighting community resources.
Shoppers can make the most of their spending with the return of an expanded Berks Farm Bucks program, in partnership with The Food Trust of Philadelphia, thanks to generous support from the Friends of Reading Hospital. This incentive program connects the fresh food network throughout the city of Reading, making it easier for everyone to access fresh, local fruits and vegetables. Details can be found at the Market’s website and at the Information Stand.
