Lancaster Central Market was ranked number eight out of the ten best fresh markets in the world by CNN this week. The article listed their list of top ten best fresh markets that visitors and locals alike can frequent to buy fresh produce and items from a variety of vendors.
"Lancaster Central Market is the United States' oldest continuously operated farmer's market and stands in the heart of Amish country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The historic market has been in operation since the 1730s, and was granted permanent status by King George II in 1742. It remains popular today, and tourists flock here to purchase hand-crafted products and foods made by the local Amish community," says the CNN report.
This historically famous fresh food market is only steps away from Steeple View Lofts, allowing residents and visitors to purchase local produce, fresh flowers, just-caught seafood and hearty baked breads.
