No Farms, No Food

 

Mission Statement

I love localThe mission of the Lancaster Market is to provide a variety of high quality, locally grown food and handcrafted products to the Town of Lancaster and its neighbors.

The Lancaster Market makes Lancaster a better place to live, work, do business, and visit by providing many distinct benefits for consumers, farmers, businesses and the community.
