At the Market, August 11 (Rain or Shine)


We’ve always felt that our market’s location — in Pretzel Park which includes a playground and dog run — has contributed to making the market kid-friendly, pet-friendly, and family-friendly.
We’re also convenient to public transportation: SEPTA Routes: 35, 61, Manayunk-Norristown Regional Rail (Manayunk Line) Map here
