The Center Wheeling Market is a historic public market located along Market Street between 22nd and 23rd Streets in Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia.

The building is of neo-classical style with three bays and structural cast iron Doric order columns. It has a gable roof and features a belfry complete with bell. The 1890 open brick, neo-Romanesque section was designed by Wheeling architect Edward B. Franzheim. It has brick piers that support a hipped roof with cross gables and a three-foot overhang. In 1900, a wooden enclosure was built at the northern bay to house the Center Wheeling Fish Market.

Centre Market reviews
Centre Market is a great place to spend the morning or afternoon. Coleman's Fish Market is a must-stop for most of my out-of-town family. We also enjoy visiting the shops - whether it be antiques...

This is a really neat place the seafood is really good and reasonably priced. Then you have the cheese store has all different kinds of cheese even some I've never heard of. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend going to the market.
I totally love this small town feeling you get. From the new age shop, "Under the Elder Tree", to Puddle Ducks and the Amish deli at Valley Cheese. There's always something for everyone
