Broad Street Market gets a $30,000 donation

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM)– The Broad Street Market desperately needs money and now it’s getting some.

The William Penn Social Association will be donating $30,000 to the market this week to help with utility costs and keep the stone building running. The city is also deferring some of the fees it charges the market to help it save money.

“It is so wonderful to hear that the community is coming together to support the market, to keep the lights on, to make sure that there is a market to kind of keep going for the people of Harrisburg and people outside of Harrisburg who come to the market as well,” city spokesperson Matt Maisel said.
