I was very excited to finally try this place out. When I arrived, there was a guy holding the door for everyone. It wasn't very packed on the inside at all. My visit lasted for about 10 minutes. Next time I will explore a little more but, I had a meeting to attend so I had to get in and out. I got the fried chicken and potato wedges from Kings BBQ. The chicken skin was flavorful, however, the meat itself, while juicy, didn't impress me flavorwise. The potatoes were pretty good and bigger than the traditional variety. I also purchased some sweet tea from Zooks cheese. I didn't notice until I got home that there was something floating in the bottle. I don't know what it was (mold?) but I went ahead and shook the bottle then took a swig. It wasn't very sweet and had a weird taste. Overall, it wasn't horrible for my first time going. I'm going to give this place another shot BUT, I will not get the tea again. Hopefully I will be able to try some of the pretzel dogs, doughnuts and meats and produce. The prices are competitive for some items and not so much for others.

I have always generally liked shopping at these types of markets BUT this time was the exception. As I approached the stall that sold berries, I noticed a few Driscoll strawberry boxes being placed aside by the proprietor. When I questioned her about purchasing Driscoll strawberries, she responded that they didn't sell them. I asked her why Driscoll strawberries were at the stall and her face turned pale. I realized that they were simply emptying Driscoll strawberries into their own green paper cartons and selling them as if they were grown on a family farm at an increased price - so, in effect THEY WERE BEING LESS THAN HONEST ABOUT WHAT THEY WERE SELLING. When I called her on it, she said they weren't doing anything illegal, and in fact, they weren't - but they knew what the consumer was concluding. So, please do not be FOOLED. These merchants can be just as dishonest as any other merchant.

Very clean and welcoming, the Lancaster Dutch market has a great selection of food items including meats, cheeses, salads, vegetables, donuts, pies, pretzels, jams, baking mixes. pickles and lots more. There is also a wide selection of prepared foods including fried chicken, ribs, mac and cheese and the like. Prices are a bit on the high side but the selection is great and everything looks fresh.

My office loves the fresh made pretzels; I get them for birthday's, along with ice cream from there. Many other great shops for candy, flowers, bakery, furniture, and restaurant.

Cannot say enough about the wonderful food options at the Dutch Market. From Moms pantry salads to king delicious chicken and ribs to the candy, bakery, fresh hot pretzels, Produce and Butcher. Must go every week to reload. Just wish it was opened all week.
