Welcome to Wheeling’s Historic Centre Market, an eclectic mix of shops and quality dining. Built in 1853, it is older than the state itself. The upper market house, the oldest in the country, was originally an open air market. From a hub of commerce to a hub of culture a century later, Centre Market is a great destination for food, shopping, events, festivals, art, and exploration in the Upper Ohio Valley. All of our businesses are local and owned by members of our community.
Where History and
Modern Culture Meet
Welcome back the good old days, when friendliness, quality and value were the hallmark of good business. Here at Centre Market, we continue that century-old tradition.
Fresh flowers, freshly brewed coffee, fresh seafood, or freshly made local products, there’s always something fresh to experience at Centre Market. Cool down this summer with ice cream from Hershey’s in the Market or local favorite Kirke’s Ice Cream at the Smart Centre.
Unique and Unexpected
Find hidden treasures and unique gifts at many of our antique and specialty shops. Hunt for the perfect gift or something special for yourself. You will find everything from wine and beer, cigars, and fine olive oils, to local honey, jewelry, crystals, and clothing. Many shops are kid friendly and offer a variety of toys, apparel, and accessories. We’ve got your home covered too with an eclectic mix of updated vintage home decor and furnishings.
