Keeping Things Fresh: Introducing Our Exciting New Location!

The Gettysburg Heritage Center will be the new home for our Wednesday 
Farmers Market. Picture this spacious lawn decked out with all your 
favorite vendors!

Here at the Adams County Farmers’ Market Association our produce isn’t the only thing that’s fresh – we’re always improving the market experience and creating one that’s better for you! This 2014 season we are relocating the Wednesday Farmers Market to a new downtown location at the newly renovated Gettysburg Heritage Center at 297 Steinwehr Avenue. In response to feedback from our market patrons, we’ve structured the Wednesday market to better accommodate busy schedules. This weekly farmers market will be nestled in the business district of Gettysburg and will be accessible to a wider variety of shoppers.
In order to increase convenience for our working patrons, the Wednesday market will also feature new hours in the afternoon from 2-6 p.m. You’ll have access to all of your favorite vendors on your way out of work. The delicious, healthy fresh options available at our markets are the perfect energizing solution to the mid-week slump that rolls around by Wednesday. This location also offers an ample amount of hassle-free parking, so feel free to drive on by!
The Gettysburg Heritage Center is a fitting home to our weekly market, as historically Adams County is renowned for our premier agricultural production in Pennsylvania. Currently, Adams county is ranked 6th in overall agriculture production in all of Pennsylvania and we have an impressive 174,595 acres of farmland. There’s no better place to celebrate (and enjoy the fruits of) Adams County remarkable agriculture industry than the Gettysburg Heritage Center. Stop by the farmers market on Wednesday May 7 between 2 p.m. -6 p.m. to check out this new location and ring in the new market season!
The new Steinwehr location on Wednesdays is a perfect counterpart to the established Friday and Saturday Farm Fresh Markets at The Outlet Shoppes at Gettysburg. The Friday and Saturday markets will be open from 9:30 a.m. -2 p.m. for your convenience. The Farmers Market season starts at the beginning of May, which is fast approaching!

Mark your calendars with the our 2014 market schedule:
         Wednesday Market on Steinwehr Ave: May 7-October, 2p.m. -6p.m.
         Friday Market at the Gettysburg Outlets: May 9-October, 9:30a.m. -2p.m.
         Saturday Market at the Gettysburg Outlets: May 10-October, 9:30a.m. -2p.m.

As always, our main priority is serving the community and tailoring the farmers market experience to our patrons’ needs. Don’t hesitate to let your voice be heard!
