Lancaster County Farmers' Market

In the early thirties, a group of farmers from the Ephrata, PA area discussed the possibilities of opening a farmers market on the Mainline of Philadelphia. In 1933, Norman and Florence Sweigart rented a building in Rosemont and invited a variety of merchants from Lancaster County to join them.  The market was simply named the Lancaster County Farmers Market because most of the merchants were from Lancaster.

In 1950 Norman Sweigart was informed that the Rosemont market building was being sold to Acme and that the Lancaster County Farmers Market was going to have to find a new home. On April 7, 1951 the Lancaster County Farmers Market opened its doors in downtown Wayne.

In 1977, when the market moved to its present location, most of the new stand holders came from Delaware County, the market's location.  At times the market is referred to as the Wayne Market but we have formally kept the original name, Lancaster County Farmers Market.

The range of vendors, and quality, sets this market apart. Coffee shops, barbecue, hand rolled pretzels, fine pastries, home made pasta, salmon, and meats and cheeses complement the two fine produce stands that greet customers on entry.

In addition, you can purchase hand made crafts, wearables and accessories.
