Forks Farm near Benton will have its final farmers market of the season from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. tomorrow, so you’ll have a chance to stock up on pasture-raised chicken, beef, pork and lamb, free-range eggs and fresh dairy products.

Artisan cheeses, apples, maple syrups, baked goods, Alaskan salmon, sauces and vinegars and soaps and lotions also are items you’re likely to find.

To reach the market from the Wilkes-Barre area, take State Route 118 to State Route 487 and drive south for approximately seven miles to the town of Benton. From Benton, drive another seven miles south on 487 to the village of Forks. Turn left at the sign for Jonestown and drive 1.6 miles.

The house and sales barn are on the left, after you cross a bridge. The address is 299 Covered Bridge Road.
