Farmers Market Opens Tomorrow, Just in Time for Mother’s Day

A local Gettysburg staple is returning to North Stratton Street this Saturday, and with it, the promise of fresh products and small business support for the whole community.

Located two blocks north of Lincoln Square, the Adams County Farmers Market can be found near the Gettysburg Transit Center on Carlisle Street every Saturday, May through October, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 

This season’s vendors include Deer Run Farm, Boyer Nurseries & Orchards Inc., Chapel Ford Farm, Hilltop Farm Market, Maggie’s Farm Gettysburg, Mud College Farm, and many others including half season vendors and rotating guest vendors.

Products include local, seasonal produce, meat, eggs, cheese, flowers, baked goods and much more.

New to the market this year are the addition of The Mexican Food Truck, serving authentic cuisine, and fresh donuts served by Ziggys Donuts.

Committed to nutritious, fresh food for all, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients can use Electronic Banking Transfer (EBT) cards to get tokens for purchases through the market’s EBT Double Dollars Program.

Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) checks distributed to income eligible seniors are doubled in value by the Adams County Farmers Market and accepted by produce vendors. Debit and credit card transactions are also available for all at the market manager’s tent.  

This year, to ensure connection between vendors and the community, product orders will be available to be placed online and picked up directly from each vendor every Saturday.

Click on the market’s local line website for online orders.

Curbside pickup will also be implemented later in the season.

Free parking is available behind the market off N. Stratton St.

Vibrant activities, demonstrations, and live music can be anticipated weekly.
