In the spring of 1860, Mr. A.L. Rice settled in Solebury Township, Pennsylvania, on a farm which is now the site of Rice’s Sale & Country Market. Rice auctioned his products, as well as his neighbors’ products, at various times during the year.
As word of his success spread, farmers started to bring their cattle and farm goods to Mr. Rice to offer for sale. By the 1950's, a market was added to the Tuesday livestock auctions and Rice’s began to quickly grow to over 400 vendors from throughout the Northeast, selling everything from antiques to zucchini!
Over the years, the market has evolved from primarily a produce market to an indoor and outdoor shopper's paradise. Rice’s Market is now the oldest and largest outdoor market in Bucks County – attracting over 8,000 shoppers per week.
Rice's Market has long been a destination for locals and tourists that seek a unique and eclectic bargain shopping experience. Come see it for yourself, visit us at Rice's!
