RTM Plans to Acquire Farmers' Market Operator

rlibkind | Aug 30, 2010 06:10 PM

The Reading Terminal Market plans to acquire Farm to City, which operates about a third of the region's farmers' markets, including Rittenhouse Square, South & Passyunk, and Fairmount. FTC, chartered as a for-profit limited liability company, would be dissolved and its staff, including founder Bob Pierson, become RTM employees.

Pierson says the benefits would be (1) co-branding the farmers' markets to an existing icon of the Philadelphia food world and (2) open program funding opportunities by becoming part of a non-profit organization.
