Central Market - Lancaster PA

Central Market - Penn Square
Central Market, located at Penn Square, is the country's oldest publicly-owned, continuously-operated farmers market. The site itself has been used as a market since the 1730's. Originally there was an arcaded market at the rear of Old City Hall and under the Masonic Hall. The Central Market, built in 1889, is a favorite of citizen and visitor alike. It was designed by Philadelphia architect, James Warner, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.   The characteristic towers of the Romanesque Revival style building peer out from amongst the other buildings on Penn Square.  Central Market - Penn Square - Lancaster PA
