One of the best places to get the freshest food and Pennsylvania is the Central Market in Lancaster. Housed in a 120-year old red brick building, this is the oldest farmer’s market and has been the meeting point of the Lancaster citizens for around 300 years. Among the list of things sold here are the farm products, a range of meats and fish, snacks and breakfasts, breads, sweets, baked products, ethnic cuisines, grocery and local craft items. Among the specialities here are the Pennsylvania Dutch sausages and hard cheeses. Do not forget to try the various pickles like chowchow and butter pickles. Some of the tastes may be new, but they are heavenly nonetheless.

Only got to spend twenty minutes in here but can't wait to get back! Oh the food! The bakeries, coffee, tea, delicious smelling delights, fresh meats and produce. Vendors were friendly and felt such a sense of community.
I mean central market is one of a kind. The nostalgic feeling alone brings you back. The vendors are friendly and provide you with a plethora of options. Definitely grab some coffee and pastries (Wendy Jo’s bakes goos) before getting all your local ingredients for dinner.
Try to visit earlier in the morning to get better parking and it not being as crowded. All the vendors are extremely friendly. Vert fair prices it's a local treasure.
Oldest market in America, love this place. Awesome selection of things to eat and drink. A must visit if your in the area.
