Farmers' Market

Market & Penn Farmers Market • Order A Print

York’s oldest farmers' market was built in 1876. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a Queen Anne Style building, though it has also been identified as Federal in design. However, it is safe to state that the Market & Penn Farmer’s Market is a simple Victorian structure, perhaps a provincial "York Market House" design, as it bares similarities to other former market houses on East Market Street and Carlisle Avenue.
