Broad Street Market

The Broad Street Market is your source for locally-grown and organic produce, meats, baked goods, and freshly prepared meals. With nearly 40 vendors, the market has something for everyone! Founded in 1860, the Broad Street Market has the distinction of being the oldest continuously operated market house in the United States.


Featuring a brewery, rooftop biergarten, a local & sustainable restaurant, outdoor courtyard, & three art galleries with seventeen artist studios, The Millworks is Harrisburg’s favorite farm-to-table restaurant and brewery.
