You should be able to experience life to the full.
So, if you’ve never been to the markets in Lancaster, what can you expect?
You might think your local farmer’s market only specializes in fruit, produce, meat, cheeses, and the like, but there is so much more. Not only can you get most of your grocery shopping done, you can even find gifts, trinkets, and souvenirs to fit your liking.
You’d be surprised just how many markets are available in the area, so to make it easier for you, we’ve narrowed the list.
We’ve asked a few people from the offices at A&E Audiology & Hearing Aid Center, and here’s what we recommend:
1. Roots Market
This market, located about 20 minutes north of downtown Lancaster, has lots of vendors with tons of variety. Fresh and local produce are plentiful, and you’ll even find plants and livestock. Roots has everything you need.
The market originally began as a poultry market back in 1925. Now, you can find over 200 stands, including a produce auction. Many of the standholders are second, third, and sometimes fourth generation, continuing the success from their relatives before them.
Visit this open market every Tuesday, and see why we recommend it!
2. Central Market
Not many farmer’s markets can consider themselves part of a city’s history. Central Market, on the other hand, was part of the city planning dating all the way back to the 1730s.
Essentially, the market has remained unchanged for over 270 years. Visitors will find fresh produce, fresh flowers, artisan goods, coffee, baked goods, soaps, along with so much more year-round. You truly cannot go wrong with a market that offers an array of products and a rich history.
CNN also listed Central Market as one of the top ten farmer’s markets in the world! Stop by this market on a Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday, and the value this market provides to its community will shine.
3. Bird-in-Hand Farmer’s Market
Located about 15 minutes east of downtown Lancaster, Bird-in-Hand Farmer’s Market has been in operation for more than 30 years. There’s a variety of baked goods, locally made pretzels, spices, and loose leaf tea, along with fresh produce, meats, and cheeses.
If you’re looking for souvenirs and unique gifts, no need to look any further. This market has hand-made quilts, home decor, and old-fashioned toys.
There’s a great breakfast spot located across the street from the market, Bird-in-Hand Bakery, to get your shopping trip started on the right foot. After you’ve done all your shopping, stay at the market for an authentic Pennsylvania Dutch style lunch. It will be hard to say no after seeing all this market offers!
We’re certain you’ll love this quaint and friendly market. Check out their hours here.
