Local.  Farm-Fresh.  Homemade.
It doesn’t get better than that! 

Locals call our County-Seat-Town of Media "America's Hometown."  During the week it's bustling with shoppers and legal eagles doing business at the courthouse.  But at night and on weekends, families, couples and fun loving singles converge downtown for great shopping, dining, mingling and music. 

And every Thursday through November, it’s a first come/first served mecca for all types of fresh, locally produced foods from meats and cheeses to baked goods and gorgeous produce brought in by dozens of area farmers. From 3 to 7pm, hundreds of people browse this open air market, some leaving with an apple already half eaten...while others leave weighted down with bulging bags of treats to take home.

Vendors include: Anita’s Guacamole - Big Sky Bread – Blue Band Coffee – Borderland Vineyard – Bow Wow Treats (for canine family members!) – Lancaster Hummus -- Rafiki African Food Shoppe – Sweet Salvation Truffles plus dozens of local farms, and unique vendors like J&J Kettle Korn.

Thursdays, 3 PM to 7 PM -- Media Theater Parking Lot -- State and Gayley Streets

On October 4th Media hosts its 35th Annual Food and Craft Festival

From 9am to 5pm State Street and adjacent avenues swell with crowds browsing, shopping and tasting their way through 40 restaurant booths and 75+ craft vendors. Plus Media merchants open as well.

Laughter and live music echo up and down each street, and kids drag their parents to Veterans Square with its giant slide and incredible bounce games.

Sponsored by the Media Business Authority -- Rain date is October 11th.
