  • The farmers market was so much fun to see and walk through. I wish I lived in Allentown so I could go there all of the time! You can find so much more there than just beautiful fresh looking produce. ...  more »

  • This was our first time at the Farmer's Market. We went on a Friday after work and it was not so busy. I like the old-time feel and history of the place. The selection of meat/sausages looked good but based on other reviews, we were hoping for better quality produce. We picked up some local honey, sausages and tomatoes. Will go back and explore more another day.
  • We've been coming here 20 years for concerts, fairs, and the market. Every food item is available: meats, pies, pretzels, candy, cheese, wine, veggies. This place is only open Thurs, Fri, Sat as many of the sellers are Amish, so never on Sunday. Now this is not a fancy place, but in all those years I never heard of a problem on the news about any products from this place. Great prices on the items, just need to get them home safely packed and cold. There are a number of non-food vendors, but mainly known for the food stuffs. If you are coming to an evening event, this area MAY be open, but almost never with the daytime vendors. Other sellers come and hawk their wares and may not come back the next day or next concert. There are places here to have a bite, but seating is pretty limited. It does get crowded in here Saturdays.
  • Many many years ago this place had quite the appeal. Unfortunately many vendors in some places like this WAY overcharge for their goods. For most produce/butchers here (like in some other farmer's markets, but not all) they've gotten carried away with their high prices. If people would shop around to all kinds of stores and at varying times of the year they noticed how much they're getting gouged. If you're getting your produce/meats more directly from the producer you'd think you'd more likely get a better price. Unfortunately this is not the case with most vendors here (like some other markets). Some actually sell to some store chains, and then also run a little business of their own, and somehow the stores that bought from them can charge considerably less than what they charge at the farmers markets. How come? A long time ago this was not the case at most farmers markets, but has become more of the trend probably in the past decade possibly two. More and more as the years go by many people just don't shop around and just figure they must be getting a good price for their things. I attribute it more to being just plain lazy, and some because they don't care what they pay because they are stupid with their money. Some can't even really afford to do this and often wonder to themselves where their money went each week/month.
  • Luv this place grew up around here, now live about half hr away and still come here. The cheese is the best, fresh vegetables, meats, salads etc.. Always better than the grocery store. The owners and staff are all so friendly.
  • Love this place, shop there every two w√®eks without fail. My normal stops know me by name, love that.
