UMFM 2021 MARKET RULES & REGULATIONS
UMFM COVID-19 Guidance for Regular Season Market
Come visit the Upper Merion Farmers Market (UMFM), where we’ve been a staple in the community since 2010. We think you’ll enjoy the farm-fresh goods and sustainable products from more than two dozen local farmers and producers who can’t wait to share their labors with you!
The Upper Merion Farmers Market currently operates under the umbrella of Upper Merion Township and is overseen by the Farmers Market Advisory Board.
The Market is conveniently located behind the Upper Merion Township Building, ideal for those who want to walk, bike, or drive to visit us. There’s plenty of parking at the township building, or in the overflow lot at Henderson and Ross Rds. You can also use the Upper Merion Rambler at the UMT Building stop and SEPTA Routes 99 and 124 at DeKalb Pike and Henderson Road.
The Market is open every Saturday, rain or shine, from 9:00AM to 1:00PM during the regular season (mid-May to November). We also offer a winter market, so that you can continue to enjoy your favorite products even in the dead of winter.
Registration is now open to enter your chili into the Upper Merion Farmers Market Chili Contest!
To be held on Saturday, November 20, during Market hours (9:00AM to 1:00PM). Registration is free and space is limited!
Application Deadline is November 1st.
Love us? Volunteer with us!
Being a Farmers Market volunteer is a fun way to get involved in maintaining the vitality of the Market and serving the community. Volunteers assist with operating the Market on Saturdays during the season. We encourage anyone who is interested in becoming a volunteer to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also stop by the UMFM Information Booth at the Market or the Upper Merion Community Center for more info.
