A great place to visit, shop for goods to take home, or have a nice meal. A visit to the City of York always includes time at the Market .

There has been a major upgrade to Central Market in the past couple of years. It now has a nice balance of stands, although it's a big yuppie-fied for my taste. JRs stand is known for hot dogs, but also has absolutely delicious chicken potpie. Harvest Moon is a favorite for terrific 14-grain bread and wonderful English muffins and chocolate... More

We spent a pleasant Saturday in this place, during the MLK weekend. You can eat, listen to good live music, and buy locally grown products such as apples and maple syrup.

Visiting markets is always full of surprises, and the York Central Market House is no exception. The building and architecture are awesome, red old bricks and iron frames and structures give a wonderful combination for picture taking aficionados. The variety of food displays is okay but could be better for a city the size of York. Lots of local Amish... More

If you are looking for a nice old fashion market to spend some time in this would be one of the markets to visit if you are in York city. Yet it does have up-to-date facilities with a down home feel. It brings back many memories to me as a child visiting it with my family

I remember coming here with my parents every Saturday morning to get fresh produce and meats for the week. The place is not anywhere like it once was. Sure there are a few veggie and meat stands but the majority of occupants are food service type. Lots of cool places to grab a bite to eat. My favorite is Henry's... More
