The Produce Exchange Building is a historic commercial building at 194–206 Chestnut and 115–125 Lyman Street in downtown Springfield, Massachusetts. The four story L-shaped brick building was built in 1899, and began to serve as the wholesale produce exchange marketplace in 1908, a role it served for many years. In 1926 the building was extensively remodeled, including an updated facade, which has survived largely intact. The building is one of the largest commercial buildings of the period in the city.[2] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
