UNC administers two year-round farmers markets.
United Neighborhood Center’s (UNC) Farmers Markets. We host two weekly, year-long farmers in South Side Scranton and Carbondale. Both markets accept SNAP/EBT and have support from the Food Bucks program.

South Side Farmers Market
Saturdays from 10am – 1pm at 526 Cedar Avenue at the corner of Alder Street (outdoor location) and 509 Cedar Avenue (indoor winter location (mid Oct- mid May)
As part of our work to revitalize the South Scranton neighborhood, and to address a lack of local access to fresh, affordable food, UNC created the South Side Farmers Market in 2010. Since that time, the market has expanded to a year-round indoor/outdoor market that draws hundreds of people on a Saturday. The Market offers locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as eggs, meat, and baked goods.
Carbondale Farmer Market
Thursdays from 1-6pm at 185 Fallbrook Street in Carbondale (year-round location)
UNC’s Carbondale Farmers Market is located at UNC’s Fallbrook Apartments & Healthy Aging Campus at 185 Fallbrook Street in Carbondale. The year-round market is open on Thursdays from 1:00 – 6:00 pm. The market offers locally grown fruits and vegetables, eggs, meat, baked goods and booths featuring the works of local artisans.
Both of our farmers markets accept SNAP Benefits and participate in the Food Trust Food Bucks program. Spend $4 in SNAP/EBT benefits and receive and additional $2 in Food Bucks for fresh produce, with no weekly limit.
