One of my New Years resolutions includes posting more antiquarian history of our Mercer County area. There are many "hard copy" folders in the Hamilton Township Public Library. One of those folders is entitled "MARKETS." Including the historically famous market that once stretched along Greene Street, the Stockton Avenue market, the Washington Market, and the "City Market," shown in the graphic. It was located on the corner of Academy and North Broad Street, just down the street from the old Academy, the Joseph Wood school, and today's Trenton Free Public Library. The engraving on the left is from the 1875 Everts and Stewart Gazetteer.
