About EPM

Easton Public Market

The Easton Public Market (EPM) is a project of the Greater Easton Development Partnership.  EPM is a community-supported market offering the personal service and superior quality of an old world grocery store, combined with a hip, modern dining experience.  Featuring artisanal food vendors, a farm stand, demonstration kitchen, and community room, EPM serves as a vibrant gathering space for shopping, dining and learning.

EPM is an outgrowth of the Easton Farmers’ Market, America’s oldest, continuous open-air market since 1752. Together the two markets comprise the Easton Market District, the center of Easton’s local food culture.
