Renninger's Farmer's Market - It’s All About the Food

Written by 

Since 1955 Renninger’s Farmers Market has been a fixture in the Kutztown community. Still doing business the old fashioned way. The merchants in Renninger’s Farmers Market use quality and friendly service to keep their customers coming back every week. Unlike the large chain super stores the merchants at Renningers go out of their way to get to know their customers and make sure they are satisfied with their products.

 When you walk in the door you will realize that you are in a true farmers market atmosphere. Fresh produce is always available and it only gets better through the season. Beginning in May local products start becoming available. Many of our produce dealers grow their own. Local farmers also supply them with their locally grown fruit and vegetables, many totally organic. August is Pennsylvania Produce Month and the height of the local produce season. In spring you will find vegetable plants and flowers for your own garden. Moving on to the other staples. Our butchers and deli merchants are the best. They carefully select what they put in their display cases to sell. Only the finest will do. Choose from fresh & smoked meats, lunch meats, & cheese.

Dietrich's Meats is one of the merchants that does it all. From raising the animals, to processing in to something wonderful for you. Dietrich's is the true Pa. Dutch butcher.
