Farmers Market, also known as York Farmers' Market and Market & Penn Street Farmers' Market, is a historic public market located at York, Pennsylvania, York County, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. It was built in 1876 and expanded about 1890. The original section is a simple 60 feet wide and 80 feet long gable roofed brick building. A 40 foot wide rectangular section was added in the expansion and the two sections were joined under a single, moderately pitched gable roof. With the expansion, a five bay wide false front was added to unify the building. The front facade features two ornamental circular windows. Attached to the main building are three auxiliary buildings including a Queen Anne style stable.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.[1]
