Visit the Farmers Market on a Saturday afternoon, around 3/4. It may be a bit hectic, but the vendors reduce prices on meats/produce in order to reduce their inventory. There are some awesome deals!
Go after 3:30 on Saturdays for the best deals, a lot of stuff really cheap.
Good food fresh vegetables and Great Baked goods and more
They close a week before the Allentown Fair and do not open until a week after the fair.
Best deals on saturday
Try anything at the Greek restaurant and definitely buy yourself some kiffles!
I'm from NYC and whenever I'm in Allentown I visit for the best pickles in the world!
The peach bread at The Amish Bakery is the best.
At Billy's Pretzels and Fried Chicken. 1.50 for a quarter pound of fried breast chunks. Perfect snack while shopping. Also their pretzel pockets are like gourmet Hot Pockets. Worth the $4 price.
On Saturdays, vendors usually sell at discounted prices right before closing. Delicious chicken from Ricker's(?) & yummy nut rolls from The Kiffle Kitchen.
Love the pizza at Charlie K's. Great food at Ribs n Things also!
Gannon's grape/cranberry/almond chicken salad is so amazing that it's usually gone by Saturday morning. I love it!
The shortbread squares with jam from bread brokers are awesome.
For great seafood go to Heckingers.
Free wine tasting at Clover Hill Winery, pickles at New York Pickle, kiffles, chicken, candy...so many good things!!
Great allentown tradition. You'll get the most bang for your buck if you go around 4:30 when the deals kick in.
On Saturday afternoon vendors start discounting and there are DEALS to be had. Amazing & not bougey market. Enjoy this well it lasts!
This place is a foodie paradise. It is also paradise for someone like me that grew up on things like scrapple, good bacon, Amish hams, keefles, PA Dutch pretzels. It helps I'm related to a vendor.
Try the Mediterranean restaurant best in the Lehigh valley. Better than yiannis and true blue Mediterranean.
have lunch at the vendors
Beware of this scary right to life booth!
Stop by Charlie K's for a slice
Make sure and try the Mediterranean place and Dan's Chicken.
Don't go for the chicken pot pie at Dan's. While the crust is good, the chewy chicken inside is disappointing.
Go to the arcade.
Louie's has a booth here now!
Best weisswurst and chocolate bread are at the east end of the run; the pita joint has amazing salads, too.
