May 31, 2022

There are a variety of reasons that McKee Builders has chosen Middletown, Delaware, as the location for several of our communities. But in our opinion, one of the best perks of living in the Middletown area is that there is no shortage of farmers’ markets. Delaware farmer’s markets sold $3.16 million worth of produce in 2021. High-quality agriculture and an abundance of fresh food are one of the benefits of living in this state.

Middletown, and Delaware in general, has some of the finest produce in the country. Amish culture here has influenced agriculture, culinary crafts, and more. Farmers’ markets are the center of all of it.
