Description

Created in 1764, Market Square was Pittsburghs first business and shopping area. Often a market house sat on the site, most famously the Diamond Market (1914 1961).

Restoration and renovation began in the late 1970s, and today Market Square is a popular location for outdoor concerts (on its own stage), festivals and even outdoor lunches. Most of the events are produced by the Market Square Association or the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership.
