Ephrata is a town with deep historic and religious significance in the colonial days of Pennsylvania. Ephrata is proud of its cultural diversity, which is still represented today in many Dutch and Amish traditions. The surrounding farmlands mix with deep historic roots to create a unique small-town destination that anyone would be proud to call home. Today, modern Ephrata provides an eclectic mosaic of local restaurants, shops, Amish handicrafts, and other exciting things to see.
Green Dragon Farmers Market
If you’re in the mood for fresh and local wares, then you can’t miss out on one of the biggest farmers markets in Lancaster County. Open every Friday, the Green Dragon is your one-stop shop for pretty much anything. Whether it’s Amish made furniture, arts and crafts, lights and lighting fixtures, kitchenware, cookware, antiques, games, statues, lawn ornaments, food, and auctions. You name it and the Green Dragon probably has a vendor that sells it. This is a great family friendly place to spend your Friday afternoons.
Ephrata was originally home to America’s first communal religious society. The Ephrata Cloister is an eighteenth-century monastery founded by German settlers seeking spiritual freedom. They formed a community where they all worked together for the greater good by farming and making clothes. Today the Ephrata Cloister is a National Historic Landmark and is open for tours, school trips, and educational programs that invite guests to explore the community’s unique spiritual and cultural heritage you won’t read about in the history books. The museum’s programs pay tribute and educate visitors on Pennsylvania’s long history of religious freedom and tolerance.
