Butcher’s Farm Market – Newport

Butcher's Farm Market PumpkinsFall in PA is a great time to visit Farm Markets (or Farmer’s Markets if there is more than one Farm selling).  My all-time favorite Farm Market is Butcher’s Farm Market in Newport, Perry County.

Butcher’s is a family-run business and they grow much of what they offer, plus they sell other items from local vendors (and bananas and lemons from other places ’cause folks might need ’em.)  They also run Butcher’s Family Fun Farm in the fall and our family will be visiting them in just a few weeks there, BUT this trip was all about the pumpkins.

Fall is my favorite season and I love to decorate with pumpkins. Since orange is my favorite color this makes a ton of sense.  I visited Butcher’s on September 17th and I’ve never seen them busier.  The folks who work there are super nice and will help you pick things out, carry them to your car – they even have free apples for the kids and samples of their delicious baked goods.

Butcher's Farm Market Gourds

When I shop at a Farm Market there are certain things I look for and Butcher’s has them all.  My list goes like this:

  • They should grow MOST of what they sell
  • Folks should be nice and helpful
  • They should have a bathroom (kids ya know)
  • They should have great prices
  • They should have variety
  • They should support organic, local and renewable practices when possible.
  • They should accept Farmers’ Market Nutrition vouchers if possible.  (This is the government subsidized food program that includes farm fresh goodies – if nobody has any place to use those benefits they it doesn’t do anyone any good.)
  • They should have a little something for the kids.  Butcher’s has a free apple basket and plenty of samples to try plus low cost treats to go easy on the pocketbook.

So here are some photos from my trip to Butcher’s Farm Market.  You can find them on Facebook here.  My camera hates the inside of their shop, makes everything yellow.  But you can still see the awesomeness inside.
