Farmers Market

Winter Market

175 West Valley Forge Road
Every Other Saturday
Rain or Shine!


After a mild February, winter has decided she's not done with us yet. We hope you've had a safe week after all the snow, wind, power outages and traffic woes. Spring is only two weeks away! Saturday looks to be relatively peaceful; a perfect day to come out to the Market.

Spring Creek Farms is our only confirmed vendor this week, so come for the milk, eggs, and meat. Watch our Facebook page or Twitter feed for any changes. Spring Creek tells us their egg supply is still improving, but ordering ahead ensures that you won't be disappointed.


If you haven't joined us before in the off-season, here's how it works:


We have a smaller group of vendors, all of whom have a way of pre-ordering. Every other Saturday from 10:00AM to 12:00PM, they set up on the lower level of the parking lot behind the Township Building. You can pick up your orders, and most vendors bring a little extra to tempt you. 

Public Safety

The Upper Merion Township Public Safety Department is a singular, unified department that encompasses the divisions of police, fire, ambulance, and emergency management services, overseen by Director Tom Nolan, who is also the current Chief of Police.
