We spent a pleasant afternoon at the Fairgrounds Farmers Market. I was impressed by how clean the market was and how nicely displayed the produce was. So many artisan breads and Amish stands. Very pleasantly surprised at how nice this market was. Also this is indoors so come anytime.

If you want good, local, fresh and tasty food, this is the place. Lots of Pennsylvania Dutch, Amish and Mennonite farms folks bring their goods to sell. An interesting verity also.

A visitor will be torn between eating at any one of the many eateries as well as stocking up on fresh vegetables, baked goods, wonderful meats, and even wine! Make sure you are hungry going in! Promise you will come out stuffed!

I've been going here for many years. 2 very good fruit & vegetable stands. Plenty of meat stands but it is not on the list of must visit places in Reading. It's OK but nothing special. It would not take people from out of town there. Not sure what's missing. If it closed tomorrow forever, I wouldn't miss it.
