Philly’s Biggest Open-Air Market Is Coming to Cherry Street Pier
Look for local farmers, makers, food trucks, and artists to pop up weekly in the waterfront creative space this summer.
Cherry Street Pier is already a pretty amazing place: you can see more than a dozen of the city’s best artists at work and ask them questions about their process, sip local ciders and cocktails, and enjoy bites from some of Philly’s best food businesses in a beautiful outdoor space, all while taking in scenic views of the Ben Franklin Bridge and the Delaware River. And this summer, you’ll be able to do your weekly shopping there, too.
A new farmers’ market, the Market at Cherry Street Pier, will pop up in the space on Saturdays starting in midsummer. The Food Trust, the nonprofit organizing the market, is billing it as a hybrid of its regular farmers’ markets and seasonal Night Market events held around the city. In addition to area farmers selling fruits, veggies, cheese, and flowers, the market will feature Philly-based makers with items like baked goods and pastas, plus food trucks and local artists.
The Market at Cherry Street Pier kicks off on July 13th and runs every Saturday through November 16th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Check out the current list of who’s selling what below.
