Whether you’re searching for produce fresh from the farm or a ready-to-eat meal, the Farmers Markets of Lehigh Valley are sure to satisfy your needs. Ranging from year round indoor markets to seasonal specialties, a visit to these markets is a must for any foodie.
No matter the season, the Allentown Fairgrounds Farmers Market is stocked with everything from apples to zucchinis -- and everything in between! Must-see stops include Mr. Bill’s poultry, the Kiffle Kitchen, Gannon’s Gourmet and New York Pickle where you can get a pickle on a stick to enjoy while you browse the market. You’ll find locals stocking up on groceries for the week or simply enjoying a locally-prepared lunch before heading back to the office.
For a dose of history with your market experience, don’t miss the Easton Farmers’ Market. Recognized as the oldest open-air market in the country, this seasonal market calls the city’s Centre Square home. Browse vendors ranging from local dairy producers to wineries, breweries and more set amongst a soundtrack provided by local musicians. The outdoor market is open Saturdays May - November.
Just down the street, you’ll find a different take on the market experience. A visit to the Easton Public Market is a must for all foodies! Grab a bite to eat at Mister Lee’s Noodles or Full of Crepe, sample craft beers at Scratch, taste local wines from Tolino Vineyards, or grab a cold brew from Fieldstone Coffee Roasters. The indoor market features 14 vendors that also include the Highmark Food Stand offering fresh produce and more.
On Sundays May - November, visit the producer-only Saucon Valley Farmers Market offering locally-grown fruits and vegetables, home-baked breads and pastries, jams and jellies, coffee & honey, flowers and herbs, homemade soap, poultry and eggs and so much more.
