Anything you are looking for is here. All fresh fruits, meat, vegetables, bakery, etc. Several seafood stands and Italian food stands. They even have several places to eat at very reasonable prices. The best fresh food market in the area.

My girlfriend and I were traveling so we couldn't buy the homemade unusual sausages, etc.. But we tried the prepared foods and loved them, yum! Great stop, even organic produce and dairy. Would love to shop there weekly but we were visiting.

The Fairground Farmer's Market has a variety of vendors. There are stands for flowers, fresh meat, fresh veggies, organic veggies, dry good, coffee, pastries, candy, breads, and even some collectibles and handmade quilts. The food stands are all very tasty and reasonably priced. My only issue with this market is that it is very busy. The isles are sometimes so... More

The market is the cleanest market ever with the most friendly merchants I have encountered. The fresh vegetables are the best and all the food stands serve nothing but the best. If your ever in the area please do yourself a favor and stop in,you will love the experience.

Tons of choices....fresh produce, meat, and seafood. Loads of options for prepared foods. The prices are reasonable and they even have a cigar shop. Can't go wrong at the Farmers Market.

This is a small farmers market but a great way to support local businesses. I enjoy the meats, fresh pickles, specialty cheese spreads and of course baked goods. Fun weekend stop!

As the wife and I have a thing for super-sharp cheddar cheese and freshly squeezed orange juice, we make it a point to attend market here on a weekly basis. Best time to go is after 2 p.m. to avoid the crowds that assemble here. We constantly marvel at the large displays of fresh fruit and vegetables that are picture... More

The market is mainly Amish vendors. There is a good amount of foods for sale fresh or cooked. It is clean and the atmosphere is cheerful. The vendors are warm and friendly.

Gigantic indoor farmer's market with both fresh and cooked food just like Reading Terminal. Many amish stands. Indoor with its own building with plenty of parking in a mall area. Could be listed as an "attraction".
