Originally founded in 1860, some of Broad Street Market's first customers were the 300,000 Union soldiers who passed through nearby Camp Curtain during the Civil War. Today, the long-established market—recognized on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974—caters to a more local crowd with 25 different vendors whose wares take up three city blocks. Visitors can pick up organic and locally grown produce, bring home freshly prepared meals, or acquire new covered-wagon carburetors. Historically, different nationalities and ethnicities flocked to the market, and this diversity among guests and merchants continues today, as noted by a 2011 feature in the Huffington Post. Boasting Indian, African, Japanese, Haitian, and French cultural influences, the market's vendors may be indoors or outside, depending on the weather.
