The Broadway Market is open all year round. It was started by a group of citizens on a city-donated parcel at 999 Broadway in 1888. The Broadway Market quickly became a community meeting place.
The first Market structure burned down at the turn of the last century. It was replaced by a building twice as large as the original. The current structure was built in 1956, and has 90,000-square feet of retail, with two floors of free parking for 1,000 automobiles.
Famed for its ethnic old world shopping atmosphere, the Broadway Market’s fresh food merchant base is comprised of family-owned, family-operated butcher shops, poultry stands, fruit/vegetable stands and bakeries, featuring candy shops, delicatessens, and eating places.
