Farm to City's Rittenhouse Square Farmers' Market in Canada's biggest national newspaper:
FARM TO CITY FARMERS' MARKETS ARE 100% SMOKE-FREE
All Farm to City operated farmers’ markets in Philadelphia are smoke-free as of the 2013 market season.
Smoking will not be allowed within the boundaries of the farmers’ market while the market is in progress, including but not limited to sidewalks, parks, roads, other structures and adjoining public areas dedicated to the market. The policy applies to all employees, customers and vendors.
The smoke-free policy will help protect children and adults from the harmful effects of second-hand smoke, create a cleaner environment, lessen cigarette butt pollution and reduce the risk of fire. And, most importantly, the policy will help in reducing smoking rates in Philadelphia and encourage smokers to quit.
If you see someone smoking, please inform them of the new rule and ask them politely to put out their cigarette or leave the market area. We appreciate your cooperation with this new policy that will make Philadelphia a healthier and cleaner place to live, work and play.
Are you ready to quit smoking?
