The South Side Farmers Market was originally founded by Tarik Yousef and Wes Miller of T.Y. Fine Furniture as the Merion Village Farmers Market. Tarik moved his custom furniture business to Merion Village after purchasing the old Race-Quip building in 2012. After two years of renovations and the creation of a beautiful furniture showroom, Tarik and Wes wanted to give something back to the community, so in 2014 they created the Merion Village Farmers Market in the T.Y. Fine Furniture parking lot. While the responsibility of the market now rests with and is sponsored by the Merion Village Association, we are forever indebted to Tarik and Wes for getting the South Side Farmers Market off the ground.
