Country's oldest on going market provides a chance to grab a quick lunch, find Amish souvenirs or local homemade goodies. Fantastic spice shop. I find the market boring for younger children, but have had teen visitors that did enjoy it.

Central market is a great place to meet friend's for lunch or just a cup of coffee. While there you can pick up lots of fresh local food and products.

They are open year-round Tuesdays Fridays and Saturdays and they open at 6 AM. I would check the website in case something has changed and major holiday closings.
