At 8 in the morning, early crowds arrive at Lancaster Market to browse the tables of more than 40 vendors selling locally grown produce, handmade gourmet foods, and organic meats. Some stop at Kornerstone Coffee for a steamy cup before they leisurely browse bundles of flowers, flats of vegetables, and trays of seasonal fruits. Others head directly to their favorite stands: Hens Honey Bee Farm, Chateau Buffalo winery, Hanzlian's Sausage. The smell of kettle corn and pancakes scents the air, tempting these die-hard shoppers to linger in the open-air market. Since the farmers' market is open most weekends in the summer and early fall, it serves as both a dependable drop-in shopping center and a town mingling place. Demonstrations, such as how to can strawberry-pineapple marmalade and how to butcher a raspberry, educate anyone who sticks around.
