Allentown Fairgrounds Farmers Market President, Dan Wuchter, Sr., has been a part of its rich history for more than 60 years and is still passionate about what the Market brings to our community. “The Farmers Market has a decades-long tradition of always having been the premier destination to discover the finest fresh and local meats, produce, prepared foods, baked goods and unique goods around every corner.” Wuchter says he is also “happy to see a continued move towards healthier, local foods and organic options. These are things we’ve been focused on for many years and as a result, I think we’re the best at it in the area.”
Many merchants at the Allentown Fairgrounds Farmers Market share in its heritage in the heart of the Lehigh Valley. Many of its businesses, owners and employees have been here for much of the Market’s 65 year journey. Guests of the Market can always expect personal attention and excellent customer service at each stand. The Market is where a customer can speak directly to the owner of a stand, gain knowledge about their purchase and experience the pride of every merchant!
According to Laurie Wuchter of the Farmers Market, “We know customers have more options than ever when it comes to choosing where to shop. That’s why we are work hard to provide personal service, the freshest local foods and an exceptional experience for every person who walks through our doors. We couldn’t be more excited to share the joy of this milestone anniversary with everyone who makes it all possible.”
