Getting Ready for Spring Harvest

April 25, 2023

Here at Lancaster Central Market, we get excited when Spring rolls around. The dead of winter has thawed to new life and with it blooming flowers, milder temperatures and most exciting, seedlings germinating to soon bring fresh selections to our Market stands!

Spring in PA brings a joyful selection of vegetables and the anticipation of Strawberries. If you like to enjoy the best selection of produce, we know Lancaster Central Market is a staple in your weekly routine. This month you can look forward to the popping up of fresh spinach and asparagus with homegrown signs and soon behind them collards, peas, lettuces, and the long awaited rhubarb and strawberries!

We hope you soak in this beautiful season – walk a little more slowly soaking in the blossoming trees in the city, enjoy a hot or iced specialty drink while you linger on our benches outside of the Market House, and meet a friend for a walk to Market and around the city square – maybe even walk over to Southern Market for a bite at their food hall, enjoying the walk between our two treasured markets.

It won’t be long now before temperatures rise and summer shows itself in felt warmth and abundant sunshine and our favorite Summer produce. So don’t let the pleasant anticipation and child-like joy of seeing the first fruits of this season pass you by. Find a friend to meet, bring a family member for fun memories, and meet at Market!
