What is the origin of Green Dragon?
Noah Burkholder started the Green Dragon on March 11, 1932, but not as we know it today. The business, at that point, did not yet have its present day name. It all started in what we now call building number three as a garage and a repair shop. From there, it became a restaurant for a short time before turning into a tavern called “Schreck’s.” “Schreck’s” was a speakeasy and dance hall that entertained many of the regions prominent business men of that era. Those two buildings still stand today.
Where did the name Green Dragon come from?
One day Mr. Schreck was walking on the boardwalk in Atlantic City when he saw a restaurant named “Green Dragon” and thought that would be a great name for his business.
Is the Market Handicap Accessible?
We have plenty of handicap parking spots throughout our property. All seven (7) of our main buildings are handicap accessible. The restrooms in building #1 and building #7 are handicap accessible.
