Just read the bottom two reviews and have to dispute both. First of all if you ever have an issue with an item from Sandoes all you need to do is call and they will ask you to bring it back and they will replace. They ask you to bring it back so that they can see first hand the problem. They deal with 100's of great growers and fruit is much like people...can't always see how good they are on the inside. Bottom line, if it is a grower issue, the grower wants to fix it. Also, because they do have many of the best people growing for them, they have no idea what is organic and what isn't. Frankly once I chose organic Broccoli at the grocery store and when I cooked it, it had WORMS all through it. That was it, no ORGANIC for me ever again. I'll take small amounts of pesticides anyday over that experience....thats what shopping in the grocery store gets me anyway. Pesticides costs growers alot of money and they spray as minimal as they can and still be able to give you good looking and tasting fruit and veggies.
I have always shopped and used Sandoes Fruit Market and will continue to do so! Well worth the visit!

I just bought 2 large "seedless" watermelons here. I was told they are "very good" yet when I cut them both were extremely mushy and not fit to eat. It has to be a really bad melon for me not to be willing to eat it. Each cost $7.50 which is a ridiculous price for a watermelon in the first place. But to be told they are very good when in fact I believe they were left over from last year is just not a sign of a good market. Also, they were full of black seeds--certainly not seedless. Won't shop here again. You only get to fool me once!

I am a former customer of Sandoes through a market they supply in Carlisle. I'm not presently a customer because, when I called their fruit shop to ask if their apples are conventional or organic, the woman who answered got in a huff and said, "Uhh, they're **normal** apples."

I can understand that conventional growers may feel defensive bout their choice not to grow their produce organically. Some organic growers are just as defensive! Still, I don't appreciate her complete lack of consideration for my concerns. When I called Peter's Orchards to ask the exact same thing, the owner went into great detail about how they do their best to reduce spraying: when, what they spray, how they try to do more pheromone pest control than conventional spraying.

It's completely valid to be concerned about the level of pesticides in your apples, since these particular fruits absorb so much of what is put on them. So, my business will be going to Oyler's Organics in Biglerville and Peter's Orchard in Gardners from now on. I'm concerned about how "normal" Sandoes considers modern-age, toxic chemicals to be!

"Something for Everyone"...Coming from out of town passing through Biglerville I stopped at Sandoes Fruit Market to buy some fresh fruit to take to the Gettysburg Battle Field for our family day trip. They had something for everyone. Fresh fruit, baked goods: Pies, Loaf Cakes, Cookies, a large Diabetic Section, Pastas and Herbs, a wide variety of jams, jellies, preserves and pickled vegetables, Old fashion hard to find candies and drinks.Flowers and plants, mulch and top soil, I would have to say all at a reasonable price. Their Hanging Baskets were actually cheaper and prettier than Home Depot's! The experience was worth telling others about. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of their produce and products. Most of all the market was exceptionally clean and organized, this was a change from the produce markets I am use to frequenting. The kids enjoyed feeding their beautiful white tail deer the apple/oat wafers we bought at the market. I will definitely make Sandoes Produce Market my new place to stop when in the Gettysburg area! Can't wait to stop again!!! Laura D. 06/17/09

Very accessible to Route 34, this farm stand is a quick and easy way to get an autumn load for your family: pumpkins, apples (of all kinds--I didn't know there were so many!), and a variety of other autumnal offerings (jams, relishes, etc.). My family was very pleased with our purchases and will no doubt go back again next year. The only thing that wasn't great was the prices, but I suppose the fruit growers have to make their money somehow.

PROS: Great selection of pumpkins, gourds, apples, etc.
CONS: A bit pricey
