Forever Lebanon Valley

New Owner of Lebanon Farmers Market Speaks Out, Has Plans

Lebanon Farmers Market, 31-35 S. 8th Street in downtown Lebanon

It was on March 29th of this year that the sale of the Lebanon Farmers Market at 31 South 8th Street was finalized, transferring ownership from Tom & Joya Morrisey to Dunamis Holdings, a Richland-based, family owned company headed by father and son, Dan and Mark Landis and in-law, Jason Schwalm.

The beautifully restored building with exposed brick walls, a mezzanine and plenty of windows for natural light has had a rocky history since the early 2000’s when local automotive advertising executive, Bill Kolovani first opened it.

But Jason Schwalm is hoping to right the ship:

Speaking on the Talk of the Town “Newsmaker” segment, he said there’s been too many vendors who’ve come and gone over the years. The latest are the red meat and produce vendors who left Lebanon two weeks ago:

While he wouldn’t disclose all of them, Schwalm did confirm one particularly delicious new stand-holder:

Schwalm says the taco stand and a few other new vendors will be placed on the mezzanine level, while some of the larger vendors he’s hoping to attract, such as red meat, seafood and produce, will be placed in the larger stands on the ground floor.

The Lebanon Farmers Market is open Thursday and Friday from 8am to 7pm and Saturday from 7am to 3pm.
