The south-central Pennsylvania county of York touts big-city conveniences with small-town charm—as well as local flavor.
“If farm fresh food is something you crave, you’ve come to the right place,” says the York County CVB’s Communications Specialist Chrissy Tobias. “From delicious ice cream made steps away at a full dairy operation to farmers markets and farm-to-table restaurants, you can get your fill of the best Mother Nature has to offer. You can even pick your own apples and other fruits if you come at the right time of the year.”
With the CVB’s two-day Sweet Treats & Salty Eats Tour, York County travelers can visit facilities with household names, like NTA-member Turkey Hill Experience, where they can create their own ice cream flavor (and take home a pint of it). Another local find is The Markets at Shrewsbury, an Amish farmers market where visitors can shop for items from more than 20 merchants—from baked goods to fresh meats and cheeses. They can also sit down for a meal in the market’s on-site Pennsylvania Dutch eateries.
