Farm Markets

When traveling through Columbia and Montour counties, you can’t help but notice the abundance of farms and homesteads that dot the landscape along with rustic barns, rolling fields, and abundant livestock. Our region offers a veritable cornucopia of harvested crops, with visitors and locals alike reaping the benefits of such an agricultural community. Healthy, organic food choices can readily be found throughout our counties, as farmers’ markets with local produce and goods are held weekly from spring through fall.

Take time to explore the region’s bounty by selecting homegrown fruits, vegetables, and flowers at local roadside stands and weekly markets. In season, you can pick your own blueberries, strawberries, apples, peaches or pumpkins. Many of the area towns offer a local in-season market on a weekly basis, where customers can interact with the farmers who harvested the produce and learn more about where their food comes from. Shoppers can make purchases confidently, knowing that the food items for sale were sustainably grown and freshly picked.

Each market is situated in a unique location that not only gathers the best of the current harvest for delicious and healthy eating, but also allows for the intermingling of friends and neighbors. Know, too, that many of our area restaurants and chefs use locally grown ingredients to showcase the area’s agricultural treasures and support our communities.
