A new fresh fish and prepared foods vendor opened in the Lancaster County Farmer’s Market on Wednesday, June 20.

Tentatively called “The Wayne Market,” the stand replaces Alderfer’s fish and meats, .

The new business is owned by Peter Liccio and his wife Renee.

Liccio has a wholesale fish business and also owns the The Market of Lafayette Hill (formerly Top Shelf) and The Gladwyne Market (formerly Delaware Market House).

He said the seafood is cut fresh daily in the farmer’s market, and they prepare and cook and prepare all of their food.

Some of their top sellers include Salmon in Puff Pastry ($14.99/lb.), Chicken Pot Pie ($8.99 each), Twice Baked Potatoes ($5.99 each), and cooked shrimp (which they cook themselves) at $23.99/lb.

The South Philadelphia native said that food for the Jewish holidays is one of their strengths. From smoked fish to potato latkes to brisket, you can order Jewish holiday specialties at their stand.

Liccio said The Wayne Market will also bring personal service and fresh fish from their own warehouse to the farmer’s market.

Dan Neff, operator of the market, said when Alderfer’s left they were looking for one retailers to fill in the large space (along the back of the market) with seafood and prepared foods.

They found the Liccios, whom Neff said “have done that quite well” in their other locations.

As far as the first day, “People responded,” Liccio said.

Both Liccio and Neff think The Wayne Market will be “a great fit” in the Lancaster County Farmer's Market.
