Leesport Farmers Market of Leesport, PA

by Ariana Torres

The Leesport Farmers Market was started in 1947 by Leroy J. Weist and his wife, Mary. This small business has grown to a full size farmers market. What originally started as a 4,000 square foot building now covers over 36,000 square feet of outdoor sheltered space for the Farmer’s Market.

They now offer an unimaginable display of locally farmed garden vegetables, produce, fresh country cheeses, baked goods, and even health foods! Many of the vegetables and produce that are offered are grown locally. In addition to all of these things, they also carry many non-food items: clothing, furniture, collectibles, household goods, and a barber shop.

On selected weekends throughout the year, the Leesport Farmers Market is transformed into a magnificent world of colors, shapes and textures. The Easter, Spring, Mid-Summer, Harvest, and Christmas craft fairs feature over 500 regional craftsmen with a fascinating variety of arts and handicrafts.

Interesting Fact: Sons and in-laws provided the labor to construct the buildings that house the Leesport Farmers Market. Leesport Farmers Market is still run by the same family to this day.
