The Common Market Farm Share

The Common Market is a nonprofit regional food distributor with a mission to connect communities with good food from sustainable family farms. We strive to improve food security, farm viability, and community and ecological health. Through our farm share program, members help us create a more vibrant local food system.

Since 2008, The Common Market aggregated and distributed over $14 million of local foods
from over 100 sustainable family farms and producers.

OUR FOOD

At The Common Market, we know our growers personally, understand their farming practices and have on-the-ground experience at their farms.

All of our vendors must meet the following criteria:

  •   Responsible land stewardship
  •   Ensuring safe & fair conditions for farm workers
  •   Providing safe growing, harvesting & processing practices
  •   Reducing or eliminating pesticides
  •   Eliminating hormones & sub-therapeutic antibiotics in livestock
  •   Providing healthy & humane care for livestock

OUR FARMERS

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.

Here are the 2016 highlights of how our farm share members supported small farm growth:

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

OUR ROLE

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.
