No visit to Lancaster is complete without stopping at one of America's oldest indoor farmer's markets. Fresh produce, locally made gifts, delicious treats, and nice people. A must see.

There is something for everyone at the Lancaster Central Market. Some Amish provide good food and other treats. Some of the stands are overpriced - but as I said something for everyone.

Organic Vegetables, Grass Fed Meats, No Hormones, No Antibiotics! What more could a girl ask for? How about great coffee, scrumptious fudge and candy, delicious smoothies, and more. Best Homemade Bread I have found anywhere! If you are into food you will love this place!

Up and coming, always something new and new ideas integrated into a time honored tradition. Support this small and cozy market...it is busy and on its way to being a hub like the markets in Seattle. Young, old, Amish or not are all there. Grab a sandwich and some fresh, local food for a fun and delicious experience.

The Central Market is an exciting place to visit. The produce, cheese, meats and baked goods... the whole wholesome and hearty pantry of this Amish cultural hub are available here. We loved our visit.

We visited the Central Market in Lancaster, PA a few weeks back. I had been here before. This is a market that sells many different types of food from meats to fresh vegetables to baked goods and spices, as well as many craft items. All of the items are quality. Tends to get a bit crowded, but that only adds... More

When I first arrived in Lancaster county from the mid west, I asked a friend where I shout start learning about my new location. " start at the central market down town" I was told that was over 20 years ago and I haven't stopped going to "market" as it is called. Lancaster County is a unique blend of old... More

Stopped here on a Friday Morning while on vacation. This was a great historical market. Prices were very reasonable and the venders were very friendly. Fresh meat, cheese, vegetables, bakery items and etc. There was a large variety of items for sale. Parking was close by.

I was very excited to visit this market place as it comes with high recommendations. It was a hot & humid day in June, and it was miserable inside. We did walk the entire place and made a couple of purchases, however, it was not comfortable to stroll and shop. Maybe it is not possible, but better ventilation would help.
