The Wayne Farmer’s Market is thriving despite two moves, two world wars, a pandemic, and a newer DiBruno Bros. across the way, writes Caroline O’Halloran for Savvy Main Line.

That’s because it stays planted in tradition while embracing modern tastes under market manager Mike Fisher and William Roche, CEO of S. Clyde Weaver, the Lancaster smoked meat and cheese company that owns the market.

There’s been an electrical service upgrade, a new HVAC system, an updated website, posts on social media and now there are plans for new flooring and exterior renovations to the Penn Fruit supermarket building that houses the market.

Popular trending vendors have set up shop, like V Empanadas, Monogram It!, By BellaDonna Gifts, and Vino, curator of fine Italian wines.

“Most of our vendors are family-owned and operated,” said Fisher. “You can talk to the owner, the grower, or the baker about how their food was grown, what it was made with, and where it came from. Shoppers appreciate that.”

The market is a gathering place for families and community groups. It hosts sports teams and book signings with local authors like mystery writer Holly Spofford and cookbook author Tina Verrelli.
