The Broad Street Market

Visit the Broad Street Market on any given Saturday, and you’ll see hundreds of fellow Central Pennsylvanians shopping at dozens of vendors. But a few short years ago, the future of the market was uncertain.

The market’s recent reputation management success reads like a PPRS case study right in our own backyard. Hear from Market Manager Beth Taylor and Broad Street Market Board Member Amy Hill about the public relations efforts that have contributed to its success.

The Broad Street Market is open until 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 31. PPRS members are encouraged to visit the market and its vendors while they are open.

The registration table will be located in the courtyard between the two market buildings. The cash bar will be run by Zeroday Brewing Company, located just inside the stone building next to the registration table. The brewery will be serving Pennsylvania beer, wine, and spirits. Networking and dinner will also be held in the historic stone building. 

Location:

The Broad Street Market

FREE parking is available around the perimeter of the market, on side streets, and in adjacent parking lots.
