Southern Market, which celebrates its grand reopening later this week, has a rich architectural history.
Before 1930, Lancastrians did their grocery shopping at the farmers market in their respective neighborhoods, and in many cases, they did this several times a week. Similar to the points on a compass, Lancaster city had five farmers markets: North, South, East, West and one dead center.
