Get Your Veggies!!


The Schuylkill Center’s Market Garden Farm and Urban Girls Produce

Fresh produce will soon be coming to you from The Schuylkill Center’s market garden farm! The Center has partnered with Urban Girls Produce (UGP) to begin growing a variety of fruits and vegetables in an organic manner. The Schuylkill Center has dedicated 2 acres for food production, and UGP will plant, tend, and harvest from spring through fall to bring fresh produce to the Philadelphia market.

The Schuylkill Center Farmstand
The Schuylkill Center Farmstand will open on July 28, and will offer fruits and vegetables grown at The Schuylkill Center farm by the Urban Girls Produce farmers. The produce is seasonal and the varieties are abundant. The Schuylkill Center Farmstand is open every Tuesday, from July 28 through October. Bags and boxes are available but in the spirit of sustainability please bring your own shopping bag if possible. Visit the Schuylkill Center Farmstand at our main building, and let us add a little something to your shopping basket!
