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
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
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."
