    Fresh Face: Freinschaft Market

    In the middle of Champion Forge Center, on the north side of Lancaster city, a new market welcomes Lancaster foodies from the traditionalists to the adventurous. Freinschaft means “family” in Pennsylvania Dutch, and
    the market boasts an eclectic array of dry goods, artisanal cheeses, prepared foods—including rotisserie chicken made fresh daily, an abundance of choices in the butcher shop, and a deli section that includes a fresh sandwich bar.


    Inspired by the farmers markets where siblings Josephine and Josh Stoltzfus’ parents and grandparents had market stands, Freinschaft offers customers an authentic blend of quality, locally sourced, Lancaster County staples, custom butchery, and thoughtfully-curated specialty foods from all over.


    Built on a heritage of food and family, Freinschaft Market is eager to become a part of your family dinners and gatherings. “We have everything you need to eat well with your family.” Stoltzfus says.


    With fresh prepared foods, a made-to-order sandwich bar, and a dedicated butcher on staff, this new market is the perfect stop for a quick lunch, the nights you’re in a rush, don’t feel like turning on the stove, or when you want to blow your dinner guests away with something truly extraordinary.
