Celebration of Summer at Lemon Street Market
May 31, 2016 10:41PM
Lemon Street Market, located in Lancaster City, is hosting a Celebration of Summer, including family-friendly activities and free samples, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., June 18. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to meet the following local farmers and vendors: Cortazzo Sauces, Springwood Farm, Simply Ghee, Everblossom Farm and Christina Maser.
The full-service grocery store is open seven days a week, with a focus on sustainable and healthy living, stocking many local, organic, vegan and gluten-free options. The on-site cafe, open until 3:30 p.m. daily, serves coffee, tea, espresso, fresh juices, smoothies, sandwiches, bagels, soup and takeout items. Owner Patricia Haverstick, of Abundant Earth, LLC, and her team, strive to cultivate food, health and community.
Two or three brands of each product––locally and regionally produced whenever possible––are usually carried. Stocking decisions are made by considering many factors, including if a product is organic or fair trade; if the ingredients are GMO-free; or if packaging is biodegradable or BPA-free. Products include fresh produce, cheese, eggs, meat and fish, baked goods, baking items, bulk foods, household and cleaning supplies, gardening supplies, snacks, gifts and more.
