Visit York’s Historic Central Market
Some of Pennsylvania’s (and the nation’s) most historic and significant moments occurred in York. From the adoption of the Articles of Confederation to the 250-year-old York Fair, the White Rose City has a storied history that shares its first days with America’s own. And the heart of the city, both socially and economically, has been the historic Central Market building.
For Yorkers, market day always means something special and there’s no better way to get to know the heritage of York than at Central Market. With over fifty vendors, spending your morning at Central Market means enjoying a hot cup of coffee, shopping for fresh vegetables to take home, or browsing interesting and unique crafts by local artisans. It means catching a cooking demonstration or catching up with an old friend; grabbing a bite to eat, relaxing over a light lunch, or surprising a special someone with some of the finest local flowers.
It’s difficult to miss the beautiful red brick building, now on the Register of National Historic Places, in downtown York. The Romanesque Revival style buildings was designed by noted architect John A. Dempwolf, built in 1888, and features ornate brick designs, steep, pointed roofs, and strikingly bright green window frames and double doors. Standing for over 125 years, the historic public market has been the anchor of the city’s revitalization of downtown.
