Historic Eastern Market has been in continuous operation since 1873. Today Eastern Market’s restored South Hall is a bustling bazaar, where area farmers, greengrocers, bakers, butchers, and others sell their wares Tuesday through Sunday, joined by a second line of farmers outside on the weekend, as well as 100 or so local artisans hawking jewelry, paintings, pottery, woodwork, and other handmade items. Best of all is the Saturday morning ritual of breakfasting on blueberry pancakes at the Market Lunch counter.
