 Lincoln University Farmers’ Market opens every Saturday until October 7th

Our address:  Parking lot of Dickinson Research Facility (1219 Chestnut St.) 

Time: 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. 

The Lincoln University Farmers’ Market is a year-round, producer-only market. That means vendors must grow the produce, herbs, or plants, and make, bake, prepare, or handcraft the items they sell. They work hard to bring fresh, locally-grown produce directly from their farms to your table. By buying at the market you are also boosting the local economy!

Don’t forget to stop by at the welcome table to sign up for a chance to win a basket with goodies from the market (participation is at no cost).

Our next drawing will be on July 22nd
