The Pennsylvania Farmers Open Air Market will return to the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center on May 5, providing area residents and visitors an opportunity to purchase locally-grown products directly from producers.

The market will operate from 9 am to 6 pm every Tuesday and Friday through November. A variety of PA Preferred registered vendors will offer in-season fruits and vegetables, dairy products, bakery items, cut flowers, Pennsylvania wine and bedding plants.

“Farmers markets and farm stands throughout the commonwealth provide direct access for consumers to enjoy the bounty of Pennsylvania’s diverse agriculture industry,” said acting Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding. “Purchasing PA Preferred products supports our farmers and businesses, while investing in local economies. PA Preferred makes a difference.”

Whether you are shopping at farmers markets, farm stands or grocery stores, always look for the commonwealth’s official PA Preferred logo, recognizable as a gold checkmark in a blue keystone, to ensure they are choosing products made or grown in Pennsylvania.
