This Week’s Featured Vendor: Prescott’s Patch
This week we’re introducing you to Prescott’s Patch, a local, eco-organic farm bringing fresh produce to Downtown Hershey!
Run by fourth generation farmer, Steve Prescott, Prescott’s Patch spans five acres along the Susquehanna river, and is particularly known for its strawberries. They will have plenty of strawberries on hand, especially given this week’s Strawberry festival theme, but also plan to sell raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, asparagus, zucchini, and more.
Prescott’s Patch also supports CSA shares, and one of their pickup locations is Market on Chocolate! If you’re interested in fresh, organic produce on a regular basis, be sure to sign up or ask for more information at their stand or on their website.
Prescott’s Patch will be at Market every week, but don’t wait until September to stop by for delicious, organic produce!
