Village Eatinghouse

If there were a “scratch and taste button,” your senses would now be reeling from these all-natural, simply flavorful sauces. Made with Apple Cider Vinegar in small batches, use them in your fresh pasta salads or to marinate chicken, pork and veggies – and they can’t be beat as traditional salad dressings! Clay and Melanie Phillips at Village Eatinghouse have been creating and sharing great tasting products since 1985. Offering free shipping for online orders over $38 through December 2020 – use code ArtsFest2020. Perfect to share with friends and family, in addition to enjoying them yourself!

University Wine Company

We are University Wine Company, a State College, PA farm winery, producing award winning wines from our scenic vineyard and winery site, conveniently located at the base of Tussey Mountain between Boalsburg and Shingletown. Just like any artist, we work hard to craft our creations into beautiful finished products that bring joy and create memories, one bottle at a time!

Suhey Peppers

These peppers have gained a cult following over the years among friends and family, and although it was fun to hand them off like rare jars of gold, we’re grateful to have expanded production and offer them for nationwide shipping! They amp up the flavor on hamburgers, hotdogs, salads, omelets, cheesesteaks, and basically everything else (except ice cream, don’t go there). Use the coupon code ARTSFEST at checkout for free shipping.

The Piper’s Peck

The Piper’s Peck has been providing several varieties of salsa and hot pepper jelly to customers, both local and across the US, for 22 years. The peppers and tomatoes used in our recipes are grown and processed on our small, sustainable farm in Bellefonte, PA. We have many repeat customers that tell us, “This the best we’ve ever had!” We’re sure you’ll agree.

Grilled Stickies

Ye Olde College Diner Grilled Stickies have been a staple of the Penn State and central Pennsylvania communities for nearly 40 years.

Whether you’re looking for a sweet treat or just want some nostalgia from your time at Penn State, Grilled Stickies remain available 24/7 and can be shipped nationally through our website.

Tait Farm Foods

Tait Farm is a diversified family farm located in central Pennsylvania, seven miles east of State College and Penn State University. In 1987 when a bumper crop of raspberries was threatened by a driving rain storm, necessity gave way to invention and Tait Farm’s Raspberry Shrub was born! Since that time Tait Farm Foods has grown to more than 55 all-natural specialty food products. Each product is made by hand in small batches using only the highest quality ingredients.  Bon AppeTait!
