Historic Harrisburg market cleared to reopen

(Harrisburg) — Inspectors have cleared Harrisburg's historic Broad Street farmer's market to fully reopen after it was shuttered almost two weeks ago because of pest problems.

The Broad Street Market's brick building is cleared to reopen today. The stone building reopened last week.

Both buildings were shut down Aug. 17 after a health inspection found problems, including rats and roaches.

City spokesman Robert Philbin says two businesses inside the market remain closed pending correction of health code violations.

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