Visitors from all over the world have been flocking to Lancaster County for decades to taste that “foreign” delicacy known as Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine. Today’s visitor, however, is being given the opportunity to taste the world as a result of the area becoming more diverse. With our ever-changing population comes a mix of different ethnicities, cultures and traditions. In addition, Lancaster’s focus on organically grown produce beautifully lends itself to the vegan/vegetarian movement.

One tradition that runs deep, no matter where you’re from, is food. Food unites people and evokes a sense of community and togetherness. From a food perspective, Lancaster is becoming a “melting pot” that embraces different tastes and flavors from numerous regions and nations.

The following features a variety of popular food destinations across Lancaster County, each one showcasing its own unique flavor.
