Meet Our Mid-Atlantic 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. We provide financial assistance towards food safety certifications, as well as infrastructure to improve post-harvest handling, aggregation and season extension. Through close collaboration with our producers, we develop new products to meet the demands of our institutional customers.
All of our produce farmers are certified in Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), exceeding the industry standard for on farm food safety.
