With the growing number of local New Jersey Farm Markets over the past few years, it has become a more popular way to purchase fresh produce, meats, and other specialty items. The only hurdle is that the majorities of the local markets are outdoors, seasonal, and close by the middle to the end of December.
Start the Holiday season off right and make your Thanksgiving Day meal shopping a memorable experience. Take an enjoyable drive to Delaware County this month and visit Booth’s Corner Farmers Market. This indoor farm market dates back to the early 1930’s and once was owned by a local farmer named Earl Phillips. During the Depression, it was a place where Lancaster County farmers came to sell their freshly grown eggs and other produce. While not the original building, the local and Lancaster Amish farmers still come there on Fridays and Saturdays to sell their farm fresh produce, poultry, and meats. This market is open all year round.
The Booth’s Corner Farmers Market can be explained as an original version of a ‘Wegman’s Style’ shopping experience. If you like it fresh, the produce and smell of freshly baked goods will tantalize your taste buds. The vendors take amazing attention to organization and detail in the way that they display their products which also makes the visit a more fun and visual experience.
Shopping there for your Thanksgiving feast is sure to be a fun and memorable experience. Order your locally raised and never frozen farm fresh turkey or stock up on fresh bulk foods and fresh veggies. Stay for a while, walk slowly, and have lunch at Rebecca’s Kitchen, a Dutch cooking home-style restaurant or take a taste of the fresh squeezed orange juice at King’s Country Store.
Definitely not a ‘run of the mill’ shopping experience, this now more modernized market is home to over 90 specialty merchants who, over the years, have moved in and find this a friendly place to sell their passions. While it offers the best in ‘fresh’, you can also shop for jewelry, furniture and home goods, shoes, and even visit a Lawyer’s office. Stop at Massimo’s Pizza Stand for a fresh slice or visit Donna’s selection of jewelry at Silver Sense, ‘Where Nothing is Common’. One stop shopping for all of your needs all year round.
