Shopping returns to Dilworth. The Philadelphia Marketplace will once again set up shop at Dilworth Park every Saturday and Sunday, from September 2nd through Sunday, October 1st featuring 20+ vendors.
In cooperation with the Center City District, the Philadelphia Marketplace is a weekly, outdoor pop-up market that showcases a wide range of local merchants, craftsmen, designers and small businesses from Philly and the greater tri-state area.
Each weekend offers a unique opportunity to explore a diverse array of distinctive arts and crafts with everything from handmade stuffed pals, modern artwork, candles and soaps, fragrances, clothing, coffee, handmade jewelry, body butters, exfoliants, hand sanitizers, lifestyle essentials, home goods, watches and more. Vendors will rotate throughout the month, with some being there every weekend, and others making a special appearance on select weekends.
This outdoor pop-up market is organized by the organizers of Christmas Village in Philadelphia and the CCD and it is completely free to attend.
“The Philadelphia Marketplace at Dilworth Park is an annual tradition that kicks off the end of summer and early fall season in Philadelphia,” said Project Manager Ronja Baumann. “Everyone is back from the shore and back to the office in Center City, and we can’t wait to introduce a great artisan line-up for this September, with something for everyone. There will be gifts, household goods, art, jewelry and more – including some fun things for kids. This is the first of our three big markets between now and the end of the year – and we can’t wait to see everyone out there shopping.”
“My favorite thing about this event is that it is a regularly weekly showcase of local vendors from the Philadelphia region – it’s a truly amazing way to support local businesses, support small businesses, and find something special for yourself at the same time. It is truly a win-win.”
