Now & Then Marketplace is back and heating up summer in the city with three pop-up markets in three unique spaces. This Saturday June 25th N+T is kicking off their summer series “Sunkissed Shops” at The Block at SoNo (456 N 5th St.) from 10 am to 4 pm. Taking over yet another vacant retail space, the market will use the Block’s commercial first floor to host local artists, artisans, and resellers for the day. The space shares a parking lot with Target and Yards Brewing who will also be vending their brews at the market. The Philadelphia artist-run collective Fjord Gallery is curating an art piece for the space that will be on view during the market including artist Heather Phillips who creates photographic and sculptural works.
On July 9th from 11 am to 6 pm, N+T will be popping-up with a real deal flea at Thunderbird Salvage (2441 Frankford Ave.) , which was recently voted one of Philadelphia’s best vintage clothing spots. This 2-day, outdoor event will also coincide with the nationwide mobile All-City Market & Block Party at Philadelphia Brewing Company.
Last, but not least, Now + Then is sending summer out with a bang at The Oval XP (2451 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy.) on August 6th- the Parkway’s newest entertainment destination. This will be their biggest market yet, featuring over 100 local vendors with an iconic Philadelphia backdrop. The market will run from 12 pm to 6 pm and feature music, food, and views of the city (and market) from the largest mobile ferris wheel in the world. As always all of the markets are free to attend, are dog friendly and kid friendly.
