At The Common Market, we know our growers personally, understand their farming practices and have on-the-ground experience at their farms.
The Common Market Mid-Atlantic partners with farmers who share our commitment to sustainability and transparency. We purchase directly from over 80 producers throughout the Mid-Atlantic, all within 250 miles of our Philadelphia warehouse. Our procurement team provides technical assistance to help scale the capacity of small and beginning farms.
Country Hill Produce and Eagle Road Farm installed 200-foot-long high tunnels to extend the season of crops to supply farm share
Sunny Harvest expanded their operation to include a centralized warehouse for packing and delivering due to increasing Common Market demand
The Common Market purchased a refrigerated trailer for Sunny Harvest to improve their cold chain resulting in higher quality produce
We educate, deliver and connect institutions and communities to local, sustainable foods. Our Outreach Team collaborates with chefs, wholesale food purchasers and wellness professionals to build a successful local food program. We promote transparency in the food system by identifying the source of every product we carry so our customers know exactly how the food is grown and where it’s coming from.
