The busy stands house offerings of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, baked goods, preserves, spices and candy. Among the non-food items are beautiful handmade quilts, leather goods, wooden handicrafts, and fresh flowers. Visitors may watch demonstrations in woodcarving, candle dipping, and fudge making as well.
When the Lapp family first purchased this property from the Brubakers in 1975, there were just two buildings on site. The house in front of the market (built around 1920) and the old brick duck hatchery behind it have since been restored to their original beauty. Today, both buildings are used to house retail outlet stores like The Glass Factory and Fashion Brand Linens.
Prices here are very good and the quality of everything is fantastic. From food and candy to housewares and toys, The Bird-In-Hand Farmers Market is a real shoppers' paradise. The preserves alone are worth the trip!
