Central Market - Review

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.

Central Market, Lancaster Reviews

  • Central Market is a historic place to visit. There are many fresh meat and poultry choices, bakery products, fresh ground horseradish, a number of ethnic food choices, and produce. It has easy parking in a nearby garage or on street if you search a bit. Tourists should not miss a visit to this location and make it lunch! Open Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday.

  • This is a great market with a lot of options. There is everything from prepared food and goods (like blankets and crafts) to stuff made to order, and raw meats and cheeses. I highly recommend some of the made to order sandwiches and jams. I wanted to try the meats bit didn't have a way to transport it back home. The venue is also very cool and classic. Would gladly go back.

  • The charm of downtown Lancaster wouldn't be the same without this historic market. From great coffee, to local produce, and amazing baked goods there's a good assortment of items to buy, or just look at it you're wanting to kill time. It can get pretty busy, so early mornings are better if you're looking for a casual visit. It's open Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday. Plus they'll have some special hours closer to holidays for when people need to stop in for a holiday ham, or something if that sort. A tip for those her always use card: some vendors only take cash or have a minimum to use your card. If you're short on cash, stop by the info stand and buy yourself market gift cards with your cc and use them at any stand at market.

  • A must visit place while in this part of the country. Many of the farmer's outlets add to the local flavour. The produce that were on sale were mostly reasonably priced and of superior quality. The place is even useful to get connected with the life and culture of the country side over here.

  • Like a much smaller version of Philadelphia's Reading Terminal Market. If you want home made or country goods, you'll really like this place. I bought some coffee beans here and they were excellent!
