Hoovers Farm Market and Greenhouse has recently opened their doors for the season. The market, set in the middle of a large farm, is situated just north of Lititz, in the Rothsville area. As they say, it is well worth the short, scenic drive through the country. The greenhouses offer a wide variety of plants, from vegetables to trees and some of everything in between. Their plants are generally very healthy and do well. Also, when you get hungry, stop by the farm market for quality produce, home baked goods and cheeses.
