Zerns Farmers Market

Zern's is a year-round farmers market located in Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania. It sits along Philadelphia Avenue (Pennsylvania Route 73) near Bartman Avenue, close to Pennsylvania Route 100. Two buildings are located on the property: a lowercase "t" shaped main building and an "L" shaped (and smaller) flea market building. Both buildings are enclosed and climate-controlled. When weather permits, outdoor vending areas are set up in the space between both edifices.
The market sells a variety of items including toys, collectibles, pets, clothing, electronics, produce, and prepared food -- much of which includes noticeable Pennsylvania Dutch influences. It is a common gathering location for residents in the area. To date, Auntie Anne's Pretzels is the market's sole chain vendor.
Weekly live auctions are held in the main building, and an ongoing "silent auction" can be found in the flea market building. Other specialty events that occur include automobile shows and local wrestling federation matches. The market is normally open on Fridays and Saturdays only, although holiday hours vary.


Zerns History

William Zern started Zern's, also known as "The Sale," in 1922. The small family farm auction was soon joined by neighbors and townsfolk and before long a Gilbertsville landmark was born. The auction grew and pulled in numerous vendors of widely varying merchandise. In 1966, tragedy struck as fire broke out and turned Zern's into a pile of burnt remains. Within days there was a groundbreaking for the new building, and Zern's has stood tall since. There are currently over 200 vendors and stands.

Philadelphia Magazine once voted Zern's "Best Of Philly."
