Fodor's Review

A must-see in Lancaster City is the Romanesque Central Market, constructed in 1889. The market began as open-air stalls in 1742. Here local people shop for fresh fruits and vegetables, meats (try the Lebanon bologna), fresh flowers, and baked goods such as sticky buns and shoofly pie. Central Market has the distinction of being the oldest continuously operating farmers' market in the country.
