A restored 1883 central market.Vendors, vendors,vendors all selling local products.I bought freshly ground coffee and some produce and Zerbe's Homemade Potatoes Chips from nearby Lancaster County, that I understand you can't just find in every grocery store.Also a fish stand a Mexican stand and an Italian stand.On the Saturday I visited there was the violinists mentioned.

Probably the best place in the city of York to pick up a good variety of edibles, as well as other products such as crafts and gifts. Very easy parking within a block.

My family stopped here to get some lunch while visiting the York area! It was such a fun market with so much to see and taste! So many surprises and something for everyone. We were even entertained by a group of young violinists just outside the market. I'm so glad that we went. I so wish that I lived closer,... More

A fun place to wander around and look at the local produce and products offered. The building has been restored. It offers a variety of products and services. We ate lunch at a seafood vendor. The fish and chip sandwich and a crab cake sandwich were both very fresh and delicious. Many of the vendors offer samples of their products.

We visited Central Market at around 1:00 p.m. on a Thursday. I had not been there for decades and was surprised to find that most of the building was used by vendors selling lunch. We stopped at a few different places and assembled our lunch. There is a variety of food vendors to choose from. Lots of different types of... More

Every visitback to YOrk the Market is on the top of my list of things to do! You will love the many different stands. Home made baked goods, with Pennsylvania Dutch goodies, Shoefly pie, Woopie pies, sugar cakes, relishes....all so delicious! Hand made craft items. Love the fresh sea food, Yummy! Oh, wish I could drop in for lunch today!

I love going to central market in York. They have wonderful restaurants for lunch and I can shop for dinner, even pick up a bottle of wine from a local winery.

I remember the Central Market 20 years ago and it was very nice with many vendors, today it is half the size and not much to see. Open all year around, nice if you get to York, Pa., but nothing in York City to do or see. Very rough place, high crime area. I will never go back, sorry. it... More
