A quiet night in Allentown

Last week my husband and I headed over to the Ten Thousand Villages sale at Muhlenberg College. Afterwards we shopped at the Allentown Farmers Market to pick up dinner and a few other items. To my surprise, the market was not busy on Thursday, and we were able to shop at a leisurely pace because the market stays open until 8 p.m.

There's something wonderful about the market that you just don't get at your grocery chain store. The vendors there are friendly and more than willing to have a chat with you. They also are happy to give out samples, which my husband was especially pleased about. There are a variety of vendors there so we were able to pick up some meat and cheese, fresh vegetables, Mediterranean cuisine, and delicious hot American dishes for dinner.

Many prepared items are available for your holiday gatherings. So check out the Allentown Farmers Market this winter. You never know what you might find.

Don't forget that some of the vendors offer NET members a discount!
