Celebrating 269 Years in Downtown Easton

Saturday, July (TBD)

Even before the American Revolutionary War, there was the Easton Farmers’ Market established in 1752 in downtown Easton. EFM has endured, world wars, economic recessions and depressions, and other difficulties related to farming and operating a business, but has always been there to serve its customers.  And even now with Covid-19 restrictions,  America’s oldest, continuous open-air market will celebrate another milestone – its 269th year of offering fresh and local foods grown and prepared for you by our farmers and makers.  A proud tradition continues  –  even in difficult times.
