Students Tour Farmers Market in Carlisle, Pennsylvania

What’s downtown Carlisle like, and what's the big deal about Farmers on the Square? Sit back and relax. Luka Dubnick ’23 and fellow Dickinson tour guides are here to show the way.

Farmers on the Square is a weekly farmers market in downtown Carlisle, where Dickinson students, staff and Carlisle residents alike can buy food and other goods—and get to know the people who grow and make these products—right in the heart of downtown Carlisle.

The market is held Wednesdays in the spring, summer and fall, just a few short blocks from Dickinson’s campus. Dickinson's own College Farm is one of the purveyors, and it's become well-known locally not just for organic produce and foodstuff, but also for killer wood-fired pizza.

Several Dickinson summer tour guides gave us an unofficial tour of downtown hotspots—including their favorite eateries—as they made the short trip from campus to the market. Once at Farmers on the Square, they pointed out some of the stands they like best.

"I'm from New York. I know good pizza. The pizza here is actually insane,” says Dubnick, who makes a point of stopping by the College Farm stand to sample made-to-order, organic wood-fired pizza every week over the summer.

The bonus, he says, is the personal touch that comes with eating locally. "When you become a regular customer, they get to know you by name," Dubnick explains. "It's pretty cool."
