Where to Get Fresh Produce Near Home

As health concerns remain a top priority, many of us have shifted how we do our food shopping and adapted to new safety protocols. While trips to the grocery store may be fewer and farther between, you can still get fresh food right near your The Isle apartment, all while remaining safe and socially distant, as you’re located just minutes from one of the region’s most renowned food markets.

The Pretzel Park Farmers Market is Manayunk’s long-running and most popular event for locals to find fresh foods and give back to the businesses and merchants in the neighborhood, all while enjoying some (socially distanced!) socializing in the fresh fall air. Held every Saturday through mid-November at Pretzel Park, just two blocks from your The Isle apartment, the event features more than a dozen food vendors: local farmers, a microgreen company, a chocolatier, a malthouse and even a gourmet dog bakery. In addition to the food vendors, the market hosts a number of merchants: artists, a bookseller, crochet-makers, florists and more. So you can get all the ingredients you need for a sumptuous meal at your The Isle apartment and also grab some home décor to go with it!

Given the pandemic, the market offers a number of safety-focused shopping options. Shoppers can pre-order items from a number of vendors and pick them up during the first hour of the market, starting at 10 a.m. Shoppers are also encouraged to practice “point to purchase” shopping: physically pointing out the items they want, which will be bagged and rung up by the sellers, to cut down on excess handling. All guests are also required to wear face masks, and social distancing guidelines are posted throughout the event.

With farmers markets like this right near your The Isle apartment, you can ditch the grocery store and stock up the fridge in an open-air setting, all while giving back to the local community.
