Harvest Market is committed to supporting local farmers and producers. Fresh, nutrient-dense foods produced on small, family-owned and operated farms provide you with the most health-promoting foods you can find. Buying from local growers and producers keeps your food dollars circulating in our region–providing employment to our neighbors. It also improves our environment by reducing the amount of fossil fuels needed for transportation and spares farmland from development.

Being so close to the fertile soils of Chester and Lancaster Counties in Pennsylvania means that our local farmers can provide us with a variety of nutritious, sustainable and delicious foods. We are pleased to offer organic milk and cheeses from grass-fed cows, eggs from chickens that get to see the light of day, beef raised on pasture, honey from healthy hives of bees and a seasonally-changing kaleidoscope of produce–all grown, gathered or raised within 100 miles of Harvest Market. view more
