We went during the winter and only a few stands were open. Was pretty sad inside. Asked them what time they were opening and they said they were. Was like wow. Might be a lot better in the summer but during winter, no reason to waste your time. Go to the book store across the street

We have been to markets all over the world. It is true that Broad Street Market is comparatively small and that the neighborhood is a bit run down. Nonetheless, the bellwether characteristics of a good market are excellent service, quality goods, reasonable prices, and cleanliness (and it's nice to have some historic charm thrown in for good measure). Broad Street... More

There are actually two buildings here--the first is being remodeled for food stalls and the second has many food and local craft stalls. We took away popcorn puffs, three kinds of lebanon bologna, cheese, honey...oh, gosh--great stuff and great prices. Immaculate comfy surroundings with information local vendors. And a huge bookstore across the street. When the art museum down the... More

It's a shame that some people have written such negative reviews. Yes, Harrisburg is far from a fine a city and it has gotten worse in recent years, but the market and the offerings from the vendors are quite nice. If you are looking for a very upscale market this is NOT the place. If you are a tourist and... More

I was very pleased with the selection of meats, cheeses and baked goods. Place was clean and the vendors couldn't have been nicer. We bought a pot roast, cabbage, potatoes, onions and assorted baked goods. I will go back regulalry.

This place sucks. Harrisburg sucks (no wonder it went bankrupt a while back). Harrisburg looks like a run-down slum that is dangerous to walk around even in daylight (and this is the capital of PA!). Harrisburg just gives off an unsafe vibe. This market is an dingy indoor block-long place with various food stands...If I didn't know better I'd thought... More

A little more non-food stands than I like, but there are wonderful finds among the many stands of this long-running market.

First off, NONE of the venders take the card. None of them!! There are 2 ATM mechines, and when they work ( I have seen them broke very often, for days at a time) Its a $3.50 charge just to use them! I used to like the ribs that were there. Now the people who make the ribs I believe... More

I will admit, this one took me some time to get interested in visiting multiple times. My first impression focused on the old building, the run down area, and the limited flare. My first impression was wrong however once, I saw past the buildings etc. It is an urban farmers market like those I have visited in Baltimore or phily.... More

One of the two buildings encloses the famers market. Lots of meats and cheeses, cut flowers and vegatables. There were even a couple of "flea market" looking booths with jewelry and odds and ends for sale. I thought it was cool to see all of the Amish men and women working with the foods and selling their wares. I could... More
