Farmers Market

Winter Market

175 West Valley Forge Road
Every Other Saturday
Rain or Shine!


Congratulations! You've survived the past few weeks of snow, cold and ice. What a way to start off 2018! Saturday is expected to be warmer, if a little wet. Winter isn't over yet, but enjoy the short respite by stopping by the Market this Saturday. Spring Creek Farms will be our only vendor this week, so come for the milk, eggs, and meat.


If you haven't joined us before in the off-season, here's how it works:


We have a smaller group of vendors, all of whom have a way of pre-ordering. Every other Saturday from 10:00AM to 12:00PM, they set up on the lower level of the parking lot behind the Township Building. You can pick up your orders, and most vendors bring a little extra to tempt you.
