During your stay in the Hocking Hills don’t miss a chance to stock up the fridge and picnic basket while also supporting our local farmers and artisans.


For most visitors to the Hocking Hills staying in a private cabin is as much a part of the experience as are the serene hikes, horseback riding, zip lining, canoeing or other outdoor adventures. And what does every cabin need? A deck of cards, a bottle of wine, a bathing suit for the hot tub, and last, but definitely not least, fresh food.

During your trip to the Hocking Hills region in the late Spring, Summer and early Fall months we highly recommend carving out some time to stock up at a local farmer’s market. You can find everything you’ll need from freshly baked pies, to mouth watering smoked bacon and fruits and vegetables so fresh they could bring tears to your eyes.

Here is a list of the region’s farmer’s markets. Bon appetite!
