Lancaster city’s Eastern Market serves many roles.
The seasonal market is intended to get fresh, locally grown produce to residents of the low-income East King Street neighborhood. It also serves as a business incubator for upstart entrepreneurs, as a community hub and as part of an initiative to promote a sustainable urban lifestyle.
Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., the market begins its seventh season working to meet those goals.
Under the shadow of the former market house, now home of Tabor Community Services, the market will occupy the plaza at 308 E. King St.
