So here we are–mere hours away from the start of the Callowhill Night Market which will bring together 70-some food trucks and vendors (plus beer and live music and tee shirts and all the usual weirdness that comes when you pack tens of thousands of Philadelphians together in one place and make them stand in line for tacos) for a one-night party unrivaled by any other food event in the city.
Whether this is your first Night Market or your tenth, whether you’re comfortable hanging out with 20,000 of your closest friends or nervous about the mob scene, whether you’re laser-focused on just ONE THING YOU MUST EAT BEFORE THE END OF THE NIGHT or (like us) planning on trying everything on offer (and the good stuff twice), we’re here to help you get the most out of your Night Market experience.

The Franklin Flea Summer Market is happening this Saturday, August 16th, and it’ll be full of vintage pieces, music, and food. Oh so much food. In fact, this month’s event is the largest one yet, when it comes to the food.
We just got the lineup of the 13 vendors that will be satisfying your cravings and we’re not sure where to start. Maybe with the Watermelon-Basil Lemonade? Or the Pork Tacos with Pineapple Salsa? Perhaps the S’mores Cups and Chocolate Cupcakes with Strawberry Cheesecake baked in the center? The list goes on, so be sure to stop by between 10am – 5pm and enjoy all of the market’s offerings.
Franklin Flea Market will be located at the McCall Schoolyard in Society Hill. (325 S. 7th Street between Spruce and Pine Streets).

The 6th annual 2nd Street Festival is back. On August 3rd from noon to 10 p.m., enjoy 6-blocks of over 150 vendors, including restaurants, food trucks, beer gardens, pop-up margarita bars, craft stations, and musical guests. Lil’ Pop Shop, Mac Mart Cart, Silk City Diner, and The Cow & The Curd are just a few of the places you can get your eats on. And across the festival, close to 30 artists and bands will be performing.
Yet the event isn’t just there to give you a good ole’ Sunday Funday, the 2nd Street Festival works to bring the community together and introduce others to the neighborhood. “This really is a unique, grass-roots neighborhood endeavor, putting a spotlight on the businesses, artists, and community members that make Northern Liberties so special,” said Owen Kamihira, a founding sponsor and owner of El Camino Real.
The festival is free and open to all ages.
