The Easton Farmers' Market was established in 1752, the year of the City's founding. For more than two and a half centuries farmers and merchants have gathered in Easton's "Great Square" to peddle their fresh and handcrafted wares. Easton's proximity to Philadelphia and New York City and its unique place at the confluence of the Delaware and Lehigh Rivers, made it a natural site for regional commerce and community gatherings. In fact, on July 8th 1776, the Great Square (now known as Centre Square) was the site for one of only three public readings of the Declaration of Independence.
Today the Easton Farmers' Market remains a rich and colorful piece of Easton's heritage. Residing in its original birthplace, the market draws on its deep roots and offers visitors a vibrant shopping experience and incomparable community spirit.
Easton’s Hugh Moore Park is a picturesque extension of the City of Easton where America’s golden age of canals is on full display. With more than two miles of restored Lehigh Canal, a canal boat attraction unlike any other in Pennsylvania and the rest of the Northeast, and one of the country’s largest canal heritage museums, the 520-acre park nestled between the Lehigh Canal and Lehigh River is a throwback to the years when mules pulling canal boats on narrow towpaths was a common sight in much of the United States east of the Mississippi River.
