Zerns Farmers Market
Located in Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania, Zern's Farmers Market is one of the oldest and largest old-time farmers markets in the
country. With a very distinctive Pennsylvania Dutch
flavor, the market has been in existence since it's humble start in
1922 by William Zern and today has over 400 merchants selling an
incredibly diverse selection of merchandise. At Zerns
you'll find everything from fresh produce, meats and Dutch
treats to cars, antiques, household goods, clothing, books,
cameras, tools, pet supplies, jewelry, collectables, toys... you
name it, you might find it there. Zerns has several
auctions including the 37+ year "Rick's Household & Antiques
Auction" selling household goods, collectables and antiques as
well as plant auctions like Franks Nursery Auction selling
Trees, Shrubbery, Perennials, Annual and Hanging Baskets.
Friday night you'll find a car auction in the southern wing of
the market. Located in the covered flea market is a Bid Board
Auction auctioning off antiques & collectibles.
The market, or "The Sale" as many locals call it, is laid out in
several sections. There is the
Main Market that is comprised of over 300 hundred merchants
within 4 wings running out north, south, east and west from the
center of the market. Each wing has 2 parallel isles with merchants on both sides of each isle.
Outside of the main market is the covered flea market that is
home to over 100 flea market stands. Between the main
market and the covered flea market is the outdoor midway, which
is very active in the warmer months.
People come from near and far, some from other states, some from
other countries to visit and shop at Zerns the "World's Largest
Dutch Treat" which was once voted
"BEST OF PHILLY" by Philadelphia Magazine. The
market is open Fridays 2 pm to 10 pm & Saturdays 11 am to 10 pm
with extended days during holidays. Zerns is located about
40 miles west of Philadelphia Pennsylvania on Route 73, 1/2 mile
east of the Route 73 / Route 100 intersection.
