  • On behalf of the business community, the Ephrata Area Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to Ephrata and Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.  We are delighted to have you as a newcomer or visitor to our town and feel you will enjoy the area for its beauty and the many advantages it has to offer.

    Ephrata is approximately 20-30 minutes from most points of interest be it Vanity Fair Shopping Outlets, north of us to Central Market in downtown Lancaster.  Ephrata has a small, hometown feel with many opportunities to participate in various events such as our annual Ephrata Fair, held the last week of September, to our Green Dragon Flea Market, opened every Friday.

    Our area is uniquely known for the Amish and Mennonite communities.  The Amish live a very simple lifestyle from horse drawn buggies for their mode of transportation to plowing the fields with mules.  We are part of two different cultures which co-exist, all of which add to the charm of our area.

    We are proud of the religious, educational, cultural and recreational opportunities available here.  Our shopping and work establishments are above average with the interest of the consumer/employee being mutually important.

    The Ephrata Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to provide this information to potential residents.  The list is not all-inclusive; anyone relocating to the area may want to consult a local telephone directory for additional listings.  Also, the Chamber of Commerce includes Member businesses only whenever possible.
