Central Market in Lancaster

When is a good time to go? We were there yesterday and it was a zoo. No parking to be had.

  1. I'm not sure of the best time to go, but I've stopped a couple of times during the week and they were closed, so you might want to check the hours.

    1. I think you might have run into the Easter rush. Last time I was there (last June) every day we went was reasonable, other than the normal lunch day rush.

      1. You definitely hit the Easter rush, I can only imagine as a normal Saturday will be packed. I was able to go this past Tuesday before the noon rush and it was practically empty. It almost felt like I wasn't shopping at Central Market, LOL! From what I've heard, early Friday morning can be pretty good too.

            That is correct. Tues, Fri., Sat. Also, where were you trying to park? Best place is Prince St. garage.
