Market on Chocolate in Downtown Hershey will open for the 2020 season on June 6 and will run every Saturday through Labor Day weekend (September 5). This year the market will feature many new and returning vendors selling a multitude of goods ranging from craft prepared foods, to unique jewelry and artisan wares, to locally grown items. The market also includes entertainment, children’s activities, and community programming in addition to free group fitness classes and other special events.
