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

The oldest farmer's market in PA still stands and provides fresh food for urban people in central PA. Some stands have been occupied by the same families for 75 years. Others bring new items to shoppers. Easy parking is helpful for open days Thursday - Saturday.
