As more people want to know where their food comes from and how farmers grow it, the demand for locally grown produce has increased. Farmers markets offer locals a traditional way to find organic fruits and vegetables while supporting their community’s businesses and farmers.
For Wayne, Pennsylvania residents and visitors, our Lancaster County Farmers Market offers all those benefits in one convenient location.
At the Lancaster County Farmers Market, locals can stop by and shop a wide variety of fresh produce, prime meats, artisan cheeses and homemade goods. This form of shopping dates back to the early 1700s when townspeople would gather and sell food and goods to each other in the marketplace. Because there were no grocery stores, these markets were the primary way for townspeople to get the goods they needed. Plus, buying and selling products provided people with an opportunity to mingle with others from their community.
Many historians believe Lancaster, Pennsylvania was home to the country’s first farmers market. While much has changed over the years, farmers markets still offer a chance to purchase goods and engage with multiple vendors from the community.
