The holidays are here, even though it seems to crazy to me that Christmas is just a few weeks away. In Pennsylvania, we have a collection of fantastic farmers markets that are prefect for the holiday season.

Of course, you can always find fresh produce at farmers markets. But, during the holidays, you can also find lots of locally-made gifts that are good choices for friends and families during the holidays. I personally love visiting farmers markets any time of the year, but especially around Christmas.

So, where can you find some great famers markets across Pennsylvania? The staff at VisitPa.com has a great list of some of the best farmers markets in the Keystone State. “Pursuing your happiness applies to all aspects in life – even to finding the freshest produce to satisfy your appetite,” they state. “That’s why the Happy Traveler keeps a cooler in the trunk, just in case they stop at one of Pennsylvania’s many outstanding farmers markets.
