What hurricane?

 

The warnings of inclement weather didn’t stop dedicated volunteers and staff from running our Haddington and Rittenhouse farmstands this weekend, and shoppers were happy to skip the long lines at the grocery store to get fresh local produce!  Pictured above: Joann and Dylan at the bountiful farmstand at 53rd and Poplar Streets, West Philadelphia.
