Lancaster County’s farmers market season in full bloom

Slideshow: American Agriculturist visited the Green Dragon Farmers Market in Ephrata, Pa. for a look at the first signs of early season vegetables

Nothing says Friday in Lancaster County like the Green Dragon Farmers Market.

Located on 30 acres just outside Ephrata, Pa., the market is a haven for locally grown fruits and vegetables during the summer, and unique hand-made wares from local Plain Sect vendors available all year.

Just as most farmers in the area are trying to catch up on planting, many of the early fruits and vegetables are just coming to harvest.

Take a look at these scenes from a recent day at the Green Dragon.
