Lancaster Central Market

Today we had a new roof put on our house.  Instead of staying home with a barking dog from all of the noise, my mom and I headed out to Lancaster Central Market to pick up some fruits and veggies for the weekend and see what the Market had to offer.

I had been to Central Market before to stop in for a few things here and there, but I had never looked through the whole market.  It was my mom's first visit, so we spent lots of time just looking around and planning our next visit!

Lancaster Central Market is open Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday.  It is located in the heart of downtown Lancaster near the Fulton Theater.  I just learned that it is the country's oldest continuously operating farmer's market!

Instead of trying to adequately describe the market, I thought I'd share some of the things we saw this morning!  Once again, I brought out my trusty Nikon (I think I should give her a name, because you'll be seeing a lot from her in the coming weeks!) and tried to capture all of the bright, beautiful colors!

In addition to there being a great variety, everything is also priced extremely well!  We brought home enough fruits and vegetables for four people to last us at least to Thursday and spent only $20!

I'm heading back to Lancster "city" to enjoy a community yoga class at Yoga on Orange with Bess from Belles and Bows!

Do you shop at a farmer's market for your fruits and vegetables?
And once again, this is how I savor the good life - locally.



  1. Dang that market sounds super sweet! I think I'd never eat anything besides fresh produce if I could find it that cheap and yummy looking around here!
