Good Food Goes Green: 11 Pittsburgh Farmers Markets Now Open

by Good Food Pittsburgh


May 20, 2020

Though things may look a little different this year, farmers markets throughout western Pennsylvania are opening for business… with some new restrictions in place, of course. 

Although there’s a big push for placing orders ahead of time this year, and this season, you won’t be able to choose your own individual produce, farmers markets are still one of the best ways to connect to local farms and shop sustainably. 

While many farmers markets have pushed back their opening dates to better prepare for new social-distancing regulations, some have been able to open on schedule. These 11 farmers markets are now open weekly for your go-green shopping!
