Spring Water and Indoor Market in Easton
Chris Bertarelli, owner of Simpson Spring, the oldest bottling plant in the United States, says there’ll be an indoor market and free tours every Saturday in Easton.
“The spring is in the building and dates back to 6000 B.C.,” says Bertarelli. “We offer free tours every Saturday at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Most bottled water companies do not use spring water, and we want people to come and visit the source of this amazing resource.”
“Saturdays at the Marketplace are always special,” Bertarelli says, “While we are open from 8am to 4pm, we also bring in around 30 additional farmers, bakers, artisans and local entrepreneurs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.” Visitors are invited to browse or take in featured entertainment, local authors, educational seminars and lecturers as well. The store features meat, eggs and cheese from local farms six days a week.
Location: Simpson Spring, 719 Washington St., Easton. To learn more, call 508-238-4472 or visit SimpsonSpring.com.
