In its form, layout, and style, Hollins Market is a classic example of a mid-19th-century public market.  It was first established in 1836 at a site not far from the historic B&O Railroad’s Mount Clare Station. It is the city’s only market structure that retains a second story and is the least changed of all the city’s public markets.

The market continues to serve the community by proving access to fresh produce and meats. Freshly prepared foods are available, and merchants also sell a variety of goods and services.
