Welcome to the Wrightstown Farmers' Market! We are a local producer-only market launched in Sept. 2006 and sponsored by the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance. We promote sustainable farming practices such as organic vegetable, flower and fruit production and pastured, naturally raised animal products free of antibiotics or hormones.
The market's more than 25 vendors offer: seasonal, freshly harvested, organically and conventionally grown vegetables, herbs, flowers; preserved products; 100% grass-fed beef, pasture-raised poultry, lamb and pork; pastured, free range eggs; organic yogurt and cheeses; artisanal breads and homemade baked goods; handmade soaps and lotions; raw local honey and beeswax candles; locally grown and handmade fiber products; gluten free and vegan items; organic, fair trade, locally roasted coffees; organic, freshly ground nut butters; gourmet prepared foods and local handcrafts.
The market hosts local musicians each week and seasonal fun and educational activities. The market also features guest appearances by local chefs providing cooking demonstrations using seasonal, locally grown vegetables, herbs and other products available at the market. Come sharpen your eat-local skills!
