|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.
