Woven among the numerous long-time vendors at Central Market, York, are new proprietors who are building their own heritage. Jason Charles, owner of Charles Family Market, one of several new stands that have settled here in recent years, says he loves it here. Other businesses such as The Red Brick Bakery & Tea Room, M & M Farms and Good’s Mini Donuts are also relative newcomers. The market encompasses an enormous mix of hidden treasures. Every turn into the next aisle brings something unique and different to the customer. This is a place you can literally shop at every week.
Central Market smartly diversified their tenants to include Mudhook Brewing Company, Allegro Vineyards, and Copper Crust Company, the brainchild of husband and wife team Sean & Nicole, two young chefs who attended The Culinary Institute of America. Enjoy an authentic Italian-American meal at Mezzogiorno or bite into a mouth-watering crab cake sandwich from The Fish Market. Handmade soaps, hand-worked glass, art and the superb Take Five Espresso Bar add to the seemingly endless variety of businesses on display here. It’s worth the drive, the walk, or the early morning stroll.
