Farm to City and Vetri Community Partnership are teaming up at three farmers market locations in Philadelphia. You’ll find our Mobile Teaching Kitchen (#VetriOnWheels) at Dickinson Square Park and North Front Street markets on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Fridays, we’ll be at Gorgas Park from 3 to 7 p.m.
“Our farmers markets have the potential to connect the urban areas with the rural areas that surround the city,” said Jon Glyn, Farm to City’s Farmers Market Program Manager. “But there are a lot of obstacles to making these connections. Vetri’s [Mobile Teaching Kitchen] can help overcome some of these obstacles. Thanks to this program, weekly shoppers will learn more about the fresh food and seasonal produce available at the markets.”
His vision? That shoppers “will take this knowledge home with them along with their groceries and then use the knowledge and food to nourish their friends and families.”
