Historic Harrisburg farmer's market remains closed after failing inspection

(Harrisburg) -- A historic Harrisburg farmer's market remains closed after it failed a health inspection that came after it was shut down last week over a rodent and roach problem.

A city spokesman says the Broad Street Market failed a second inspection on Wednesday. It had been shut down last Thursday for health violations and had been expected to reopen after weekend visits by an exterminator.

The Broad Street Market bills itself as the oldest continuously operated market house in the country. It traces its history back to 1860.

There is no timetable for reopening the market but another inspection is expected today.
