Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture

I thought I would share a glimspe of the culture of Lancaster, Pennsylvania (my home).  The photos are taken at Central Market, the oldest farmer’s market in the United States and one of the top ten in the world.  The market offers food culture from around the world but its uniqueness lies in its concentration of Amish and Mennonite vendors, which is what I’m focusing on in this post.  If you would like a more detailed look at this historic market, I wrote about it here last summer.  Thanks for taking a peek.

  1. Good choice for a culture prompt. Reminds me of Reading Market in Philly. We have a number of wonderful farmer’s markets in the Cleveland area but not as many Amish vendors. I love markets!

  2. When I lived in Philadelphia they had many of the vendors with stalls in their Reading Terminal Market. We LOVED their stuff across the board. You are lucky to be so close!

  3. Wonderful images Stephany and I do so love this kind of social- documentary photography….hopefully we will get to see more of these kind of posts as I do so enjoy your images and the accompanying words as they combine to produce a wonderful insight to your part of the world. I hope you have a wonderful week.
