Hershey is famous for its delicious chocolate candy, but there are also dozens of farms nearby that produce fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and cheeses.
The Farmers Market on Chocolate will open for the 2016 season on May 21 and run every Saturday from 8:00am to 12:30pm. through Oct. 8. It will be located on the parking lot adjacent to the Hershey Volunteer Fire Company, 43 West Caracas Ave.
Opened for the first time in downtown Hershey last year, the market featured such products as meats, seafood, local wines, artisan cheeses, homemade sauces and spreads, fresh baked goods, handmade dog treats, and naturally grown fruits and vegetables.
Information for vendors is available on the Downtown Hershey website, www.DowntownHershey.com.
