A mecca for local shoppers for generations, the Lancaster Central Market finds itself listed among the top 101 Best Farmer’s Markets in America. According to the website, The Daily Meal, Lancaster Central Market is ranked the 13th best farmer’s market in these United States.


To determine which farmer’s markets were the best in the country, The Daily Meal ranked the best in each state based on three main criteria: “What’s at the Market”, “Street Credibility”, and “When it’s Open”.

“What’s at the Market” considers the quality, number, and variety of products sold at the market, and the availability of each vendor’s background information. Because our peers’ opinions are always important, “Street Credibility” looks at what people are saying about the market, what kind of fan base it has on Facebook, Twitter, and Yelp, and any awards or recognition it’s been given. And finally, “When It’s Open,” takes into account how often the market is open weekly and year-round.
