宾州兰开斯特市的中央市场
地方性遗产

或许,您已经记不得您去过几次超级市场了
,但您曾到过任何市场,在那里,负责销售食物的人就是食物本身的生产者?

兰开斯特市的中央市场是国内,最古老且仍在运作中的公共农夫市场。270年以来,兰开斯特市的居民会到中央市场的广场,从在地的种植者及生产者手中购买食物。自1730年代时,人们开始在此聚集,从事买卖。市场现在所使用的建筑物建于1889年,名叫中央市场屋。

时下的我们习惯到当地的超级市场,购买来自加州的水果或是芝加哥的肉类。但在殖民时期,人们只能食用当地现有的食材。冬天时,他们会吃蔬菜的根茎部分,如:芜菁及洋葱,而不是蕃茄或青椒,这些食材只有夏天才有。现在的人们为求新鲜及美味,仍喜欢选购当地生产的食材。

 
You've probably been to a supermarket more times than you can remember. But have you ever been to a market where the people who produce the food are the ones who sell it?

Lancaster's Central Market is one of the oldest continuously operating public farmer's markets in the nation. For 270 years, the people of Lancaster have come to the central market square area to buy foods from local growers and producers. People began meeting here to sell and shop in the 1730s. The current building used for the market, called the Central Markethouse, was built in 1889.

Nowadays we are used to visiting the local supermarket to buy fruit from California or meat from Chicago. In Colonial times, people had to eat whatever was available to them locally. In the winter, they ate root vegetables such as turnips and onions, rather than tomatoes or green peppers, which were only available in the summer. Today, people still like to seek out locally grown food for its freshness and taste.
