The group Philadelphia Flea Marketsis going to do what their name says they do on East Passyunk Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The parking lot across from the Cantina will play host to much of the market, but it will also run up the sidewalks on Passyunk to Tasker and part of 12th Street. Originally, it was only supposed to be in the parking lot, but Renee Gilinger at the EPA BID said they expanded it because they attracted so much interest. The avenue will not be blocked off to car traffic, though. Rain date is Sunday.
Organizers are expecting more than 60 vendors “featuring antiques, collectibles, vintage furniture, jewelry, clothing and accessories, glassware, pottery and much more!” Exclamation point is theirs.
Also, right down the street at Broad and Snyder, the Lower Moyamensing Civic is hosting its own flea market and fair outside South Philly High on Saturday. Check the Facebook invite for more info.
Since East Passyunk is the land of street fairs, we might as well remind all you artsy types to register for the fall festival,which we told you about this week.
