When you shop at Lancaster Central Market at Penn Square in the heart of Lancaster City you become a part of a living history. This is America's oldest farmers' market building. Since the 1730's farmers have been bringing meats and vegetables to the site for sale to local residents. Many of today's standholders have been "on market" since the early 1900's.

We encourage you to come early and often for the locally grown foods, fresh baked desserts and breads, cheeses, meats, flowers, crafts and always friendly conversation. Fill your basket and your heart from our treasury of good things.

Lancaster Central Market is open year-round on Tuesdays and Fridays from 6AM to 4PM and on Saturdays 6AM to 2PM. Market is closed on holidays. In these cases market is held the day before the holiday.

Lancaster Central Market was recently listed as one of the 10 best fresh markets in the world by CNN Go, the global and travel website of the international cable news network.
