In Harrisburg, few buildings are more iconic than the Broad Street Market. Through its 154-year history, the Market has experienced many changes, and some old-timers even remember when it was a hub of both commerce and social life in Harrisburg. While not the center of community it once was, the Market still is a busy place. Each week, its legacy is carried forth by the dozens of purveyors of meats, produce, flowers, cheeses, baked goods, prepared foods and more.
A couple of months back, our photographer, Dani Fresh, decided to visually document the people who make the Market the wonderful place it is. We decided to re-print her work so that Burg readers throughout central Pennsylvania can meet the people of the Broad Street Market.
