Standing at North Beaver and Philadelphia Streets for 125 years, Central Market, or “Market” as it’s affectionately known, is a reminder of York’s storied history and the anchor of the revitalization of Downtown York. More than just a beautiful historic building, Central Market is both a grassroots commercial operation and a community gathering place. It’s the economic and social heart of the city, the cornerstone of downtown life.
Yorkers know that a “Market Day” means grabbing coffee with a friend and fresh vegetables to take home for dinner. It means listening to live music while browsing unique artisan crafts. On a Market Day, we catch a cooking demonstration and catch up on local news. We lunch on soup, sandwiches and salads, and grab something sweet to take back to the office. A Market Day means a day for socializing, a day for supporting local. It’s a day to be a part of what’s going on downtown.
Market shoppers enjoy the finest in locally grown flowers and produce, baked goods, fresh seafood, meats, deli products and many specialty items; while sellers network and hawk their wares in a bustling, supportive environment. Locals and visitors alike find fresh local flavor at the many prepared food vendors, with tons of seating for mingling and making the rounds.
Come see why Central Market “belongs” to every member of our community. It’s our market; our heart. We think it will soon be your market too.
