Way Fruit Farm Expanding To Second Location In Downtown State College
Apple cider donuts are coming to downtown State College sometime soon.
Way Fruit Farm, a 150-year-old family farm located in Stormstown, plans to open a location at 252 E. Calder Way in the former location of Little Food Court.
While an opening date hasn’t been set, Way Fruit Farm hopes to open later this summer while it sorts out permits, hires staff, and prepares the shop, according to a video announcement on the farm’s Facebook page.
“We are excited to open a second location and thus join the awesome, local businesses, friends and customers that are already downtown and add to the fresh, locally-focused food offerings in SC on Calder Way,” Way Fruit Farm wrote.
In the video, owners Jason and Megan Coopey explain that while the new location may be smaller than what customers are used to, it will still have all of the things that make the farm special, including the farm’s fresh fruit, a bakery with its famous apple cider donuts, a soda wall, and a cafe with a lunch and dinner menu.
According to Jason Coopey, the two-story shop will have an upstairs with a “farmers market kind of feel,” while the downstairs will have space for seating and other features.
Coopey explained that the move downtown comes out of a love for Centre County.
“We think that downtown State College is a very unique gem, and we think we can bring something and add to it,” Coopey said. “For those of you who live close to downtown, it’ll be an easier way to get our things.”
Way Fruit Farm is also preparing to host its second annual “Art in the Orchard” event, featuring live music, artisans, food trucks, and activities for kids from July 14 to 16.
