Tucked away just 3.5 miles from Norris Hills Apartments is a place that feels worlds away from the city, despite the fact that Philadelphia is just a few miles in the other direction. Maple Acres Farm and Market brings a slice of the countryside to Plymouth Meeting. Now more than 100 years since its fields were first tilled, Gary McKeown carries on the family legacy by continuing to run the farm.

Gary and his family offer farm-fresh produce to the public through their farmers' market. It's always stocked with seasonal produce, plus fresh flowers. Currently, you'll find freshly picked sweet corn, broccoli, Swiss chard, kale, zucchini, cucumbers, and other summertime crops at the farmers market. If you want the full farm experience, opt to pick your own strawberries, tomatoes, or even sunflowers now through November.
