Stopped by here and was pleasantly surprised! The one building doesn't have much because I think it's being remodeled but the other building is awesome! There are tons of venders that are selling all kinds of food. It all looks delicious! This market is more urban and has a lot of locals so if that kind of things scares you... More

The Broad Street Market was interesting but we came on a cold Friday afternoon and I got the impression it was a warming station for unfortunates and it made me feel a little uncomfortable. We quickly went to the stands we wanted to make purchases and left. The popcorn lady had great popcorn and we purchased candy and cookies at... More

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
