All The Outdoor Festivals and Flea Markets You Can’t Miss This Weekend
Open-air markets are about as outdoorsy as things get here at Shoppist, and we see absolutely nothing wrong with that. Soak in some sunshine this weekend while supporting local artisans, vendors and chefs at any of these outdoor festivals and flea markets. With handmade goods, amazing food, and lots of sunshine, you’re bound to have the best weekend at one of these shopping extravaganzas. Go the extra mile and show some skin—you’ve gotta start working on those pale legs sometime, right?
South Street Food and Flea Festival, South Street.
Saturday afternoon, from 12 pm to 5 pm, head to the second floor of Whole Foods on South Street for this rooftop market. Zen Elements will be there with gorgeous sarongs, wraps and handmade jewelry, as well as badass brand Frillygurl to outfit the rad chick within. 929 South Street.
Terrain’s Dig Into Spring Festival, Glenn Mills.
Mark the beginning of gardening season this Saturday from 12 pm to 5 pm at the area’s mecca for all things flowery and beautiful. There will be live music, treats, arts and crafts for little ones, and a Pizzeria Vetri food truck. Looking for a Mother’s Day gift? I bet she’d appreciate a Farmaesthetics salt scrub a whole lot more than another round of Bath & Body Works usuals. 914 Biltmore Pike.
Crafty Balboa April Showers, East Passyunk.
This Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm, head to the Singing Fountain to shop this free, open-air craft market. Peruse dozens of vendors’ tents filled with handmade goods like Jane Broadbent’s hand-thrown ceramics in funky colors. While you’re there, check out East Passyunk’s Flavors of the Avenue, featuring food from over 25 local restaurants, as well as fashion shows all day long featuring kid’s, casual, and bridal styles available at local boutiques. Come hungry and ready to shop. 11th Street and East Passyunk Avenue.
Clover Market, Bryn Mawr.
If the ’burbs are closer, check out another Clover Market happening Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. Here, you’ll find everything from antiques and art for your home to high-end vintage designer pieces from Pocketbook Vintage. Plus, there will be tons of food vendors and handmade treasures just calling your name. 7 North Bryn Mawr Avenue.
