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!

Vendor Requirements

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2015 season. In order to be a vendor at our outdoor farmers' markets, then you must be growing or making the food that you're selling. All baked goods and prepared foods must be made in a licensed and inspected kitchen. It is your responsibility to obtain all the permits and certificates needed to safely serve food to the public. You'll also need the right equipment which includes tables, pop-up tents with weights and signage. Send an email to jon@farmtocity.org for a 2016 application or call 215-733-9599, ask for Jon.
