Come join us for the PA Farmers Open Air Market at the Farm Show in Harrisburg, from 9-6 on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, to kick off our 42nd market season! Parking at the Farm Show is ALWAYS FREE for market customers. If there is an event going on at the Farm Show, just tell the parking attendant that you are going to the Farmers Market.
Because of the longevity of our market, a number of the farmers and vendors that provide seasonal goodness to our customers are second and third generation at the market. How's that for sustainability!
Over 25 vendors include farmers and producers selling local farm fresh fruits and vegetables, organically certified pasture raised chicken, pork and beef, eggs from grass-fed pastured hens, PA wine, ice cream, cheese, homemade baked goods including pies, cakes, cookies and whoopie pies, as well as fantastic hot sauces, barbeque sauces and fresh herbs that can be used to add that extra burst of flavor to an everyday meal. You can also treat yourself to a beautiful bouquet of fresh-cut flowers right off the farm.
Healthy, Pennsylvania-grown native plants and other garden worthy perennials are available throughout the market season, while spring brings an abundance of vegetable starts, annuals, herbs and hanging baskets, and colorful fall mums begin to appear in late August.
Troutman's food truck prepares delicious homemade soups and sandwiches, along with hot dogs, sausages and their specialty French fries. Picnic tables available. Lawn and shade trees border the market, so bring a blanket and settle down for a picnic instead. Port-a-johns and a hand washing station available on site for your comfort.
The PA Farmers Open Air Market has been open annually from the first Tuesday in May to the Tuesday before Thanksgiving since 1974 in the parking lot at the Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg, PA. Open rain or shine, Tuesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. There is always FREE PARKING for market customers. If parking fees are being collected, just tell the attendant you are going to market so you will not be charged.
Easy access off Cameron ST onto Industrial RD; turn left into the PA Farm Show Complex and Expo Center parking lot (2300 North Cameron ST, Harrisburg, PA 17110) across from the entrance to HACC (Harrisburg Area Community College).
We look forward to welcoming you to the PA Farmers Open Air Market!
