Bala Cynwyd Farmers' Market Update
To our loyal customers and neighbors - and ask you to help spread the word: the Bala Cywnyd Farmers Market will be taking a hiatus for the 2016 season with the hopes of returning to another new location for the 2017 season.

We know this is so disappointing to our fellow fans of local food and farms, but we firmly believe in silver linings, glasses half full and the sunny side of the street. We will miss shopping at our local market, yet we are excited to support our township commissioners and Farm to City as they look for a new location for 2017. Last year’s location--The Barmouth Trailhead-- is a lovely, scenic spot, but we found the market works best when it is situated in a highly visible location with lots of foot, bike and car traffic.

We thank you a million times over for your help over the last 5 years. (A special shout out goes to Gabe Spector who generously let us use the GSB parking lot for 4 of those 5.) Your comments, your questions, your “hellos” and kind words confirmed for us that a farmers market is a community effort, so please keep the support coming.

How? Let the township and your township commissioner know that you want the market back in Bala. Feel free to send your ideas for new locations, recognizing that existing zoning laws continue to make it difficult to find a spot in our neighborhood. If you have a spare parking lot, let us know!

PAYMENT OPTIONS

Most of the farmers at our markets do accept Farmers' Market Nutrition Program paper vouchers, issued to seniors or WIC recipients; please check with individual farmer(s) at each market, because each farmer must apply to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture to be eligible to accept these paper checks.

SOME FARMS AT OUR MARKETS ACCEPT ACCESS (SNAP), CREDIT, AND DEBIT CARDS.

GLOSSARY

IPM. This term used to describe the fruits and vegetables available at some of the markets. IPM stands for Integrated Pest Management. The National IPM Network defines IPM practice as "a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools in a way that minimizes economic, health, and environmental risks."

Pastured animals. When cows, pigs, sheep, chickens, and other animals are allowed to eat their natural diet - grass, bugs, and other organisms in a field - they produce superior quality meat, eggs, and milk. The farmers who raise their livestock on pasture typically do not feed them antibiotics nor inject them with hormones. Research shows that meat, eggs, and dairy products from grassfed animals have higher omega-3 fatty acids, more favorable omega-3 to omega-6 ratios, and lower cholesterol than the poor beasts stuffed with corn in feed-lots. They are healthy animals and the products made from them are better for people. Eggs are available from various farms at all our markets!
