Harrisburg’s Broad Street Market is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the oldest continuously operated market houses in the country. Founded in 1860 and used to feed Civil War troops training at nearby Camp Curtin, the market today serves as the anchor of Harrisburg’s Midtown District, hosting 40 vendors offering locally grown and organic produce, meats, baked goods, and freshly prepared meals.
Enjoying a crisp fall day wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Meadville Market House. Built in 1870, the Market House is busy all year offering a variety of products which include fresh baked goods, candies, homemade pasta, coffees, maple sugar products, and crafts. It has provided a location for farmers to sell their fresh produce for more than 145 years.
