September 2019 Newsletter
The long, carefree days of August slipped away and September tiptoed in before we knew it. Determined yellow school buses are replacing laid-back beach cruisers and the weather is cooling with each passing day. But, not to worry – there’s something reassuring about how one season gives way to another. The merchants of the Philadelphia Wholesale Produce Market embrace the approaching autumn and its stunning array of fruits and vegetables.
Just as some local seasonal produce is fading away, there’s always something new the earth offers up, including apples, beets, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cranberries, parsnips, pumpkins, and winter squash. We love all things farm to table, local, and seasonal, but keep in mind that the Philadelphia Wholesale Produce Market imports from around the world. After all, the demand for fresh strawberries, avocados, and bananas never dwindles, so our merchants find efficient ways to bring “glocal” (global and local) to the Philadelphia region twelve months a year.
Visit us at pwpm.net or, better yet, feast your senses in our fully-enclosed and fully-refrigerated facility at 6700 Essington Avenue. Even though the seasons change, one thing remains the same – our commitment to having “all the best, all right here.”
