Central Market

23 N. Market Street, Lancaster, 17603, PA

Aptly situated in Downtown Lancaster, Central Market has been an area staple since 1730. Today, it houses 64 local vendors, many of whom are Amish and/or own their own farms and sell homemade goods. Kids get a kick out of the Old-Fashioned Candy Stand and Wendy Jo’s Cookies, while many parents enjoy a wide selection of ethnic food stands, plus fresh fruits and vegetables (in the raw or delicious smoothies).

Central Market is open Tuesday and Friday, 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Arrive early if you’d like to beat the hustle-and-bustle of a visit later in the day.
