Agriculture is deemed an essential business in Pennsylvania. This means there are still plenty of opportunities to get fresh produce, dairy items, homemade baked goods, fresh flowers and more at some of our Cumberland Valley farm stands and markets, greenhouses, and orchards. As always, please check the website or Facebook page of each business for the most up-to-date information on hours of operation.

All grown, raised, and made within 50 miles by our vendors. Customers are requested to maintain proper social distancing (6 ft.) between fellow shoppers and at vendors’ tables,
