It’s Outdoor Farmers Market Season in North Central PA

There’s nothing we like better than buying fresh produce and
products from our local suppliers. And that goes for many of our guests too!
This summer Bloomsburg and other surrounding towns have markets offering a wide
range of foods and more.

It’s strawberry season and that means a trip to Rohrbach’s Farm is a must. While its market is open from April to December, June is a
great time to visit, especially for the Annual Strawberry Socials when you can
pick your own fresh berries, and enjoy slow-smoked meats from Well Done Q, hot
dogs and homemade desserts. Rohrbach’s also raises Angus beef and offers it for
sale in a variety of options.
