ROOT'S Country Market & Auction is the Oldest Single Family Run Country Market in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Established in 1925 by A.W. Root as a poultry auction, Root's Country Market & Auction has evolved to include a produce
auction and 200+ standholders including fresh meats, deli, bakeries, nursery and flowers, handmade crafts, antiques,
collectibles and household items of all kinds.
Root's is a traditional country market in Lancaster County and a part of the heritage of the Pennsylvania Dutch area.
Country markets and public auctions are a way of life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Some stands at Root's are operated
today by the second and third generations of family members who helped to start the market. The antique soft pretzel machine
in use at the pretzel bakery was built by the current standholder's grandfather.
