Operating farmers' markets since 1992, The Food Trust's mission is to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food. In 2008, The Food Trust runs a network of 30 farmers' markets (including affiliates) in the Southeastern Pennsylvania region, many of which are in neighborhoods with little access to fresh food. The Trust works to improve the health of children and adults, promote good nutrition, increase access to nutritious foods, and advocate for better public policy.
All of The Food Trust's farmers' markets accept senior citizens' and WIC mothers' Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) coupons. Almost all of The Food Trust's farmers' markets accept EBT/ACCESS cards - foodstamp benefits in the form of a swipe card. Please call 215.575.0444 x141 to find out where you can use your ACCESS card.
