Central Market dates back to the founding of Lancaster, when Andrew Hamilton laid out the original town plan in1730 and included a lot in the center for the town square and an adjacent lot to be used in perpetuity for a market.
Nearly 280 years later, Lancaster Central Market has remained in continuous operation in the same location — making it the oldest such marketplace in the country. To help the market remain competitive as well as repair and maintain its building, the city completed a Central Market master plan in 2005.
