Each year, we carefully select local non-profit organizations that align with our mission of supporting Yardley, PA. Our beneficiaries are the backbone of our event and our community, and we are proud to support them in their efforts to make a positive impact. Without their hard work and dedication to our community, Yardley Harvest Day would not be the success that it is today.
Chosen beneficiaries have the opportunity to connect with members of the community by vending on event day as well as receive a portion of the funds raised at Yardley Harvest Day. We are honored to work alongside such incredible non-profit organizations and individuals who are making a difference in Yardley. We hope that you will join us in celebrating our beneficiaries and supporting their efforts this September 23rd 2023 at Yardley Harvest Day!

Yardley Farmers Market
Yardley Farmers Market is a Saturday morning market located in Buttonwood Park, in beautiful Yardley Borough, Bucks County, PA. The market was founded in the spring of 2015 by two friends who had a passion for fresh, local food and wanted to bring a great mix of vendors to their little town. The market offers a great mix of vendors, providing customers with the opportunity to shop for home products locally. The market has grown to become a year-round event with an indoor winter market held at the historic Yardley Friends Meeting at 65 North Main St.
