History

Like many big cities, Washington, D.C., had several large markets where residents shopped daily for foodstuffs. Center Market, Washington’s largest, was built in 1871. Located at 7th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., (where the National Archives stands today), Center Market attracted food wholesalers and retailers to the area.
