Every Saturday during the Ambler Farmers’ Market, Trax opens an outside seating area for a farm-to-table breakfast with ingredients sourced straight from the market!

Ambler Farmers’ Market

Trax is proud to host the Ambler Farmers’ Market. Throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall, Trax will feature menu items sourced from the farmers at market.

Opening day is May 2nd and we wish it was tomorrow. This winter was brutal and the only thing that kept us going was the visions of eggplants dancing in our heads. Eggplants and heirloom tomatoes and freshly baked bread and peaches and apples and goat cheese and hot coffee and…well, you get the picture. We know you have been dreaming about it, too!

As always, besides offering the finest in farm fresh produce and locally produced artisanal goods, the Ambler Farmers’ Market will feature a weekly musician and programming to fill your minds as well as your bellies!
