Feminist Flea Market & Craft Fair
Join us for the Feminist Flea Market & Craft Fair on Friday, August 27 from 6 pm to 10 pm at Cherry Street Pier. This specialty market is by and for artists marginalized for their gender, including women, trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming folks. Featuring more than 40 vendors. The Pier is open rain or shine.
After pivoting to hosting virtual markets during the first year and a half of the pandemic, the Feminist Flea Market & Craft Fair is back in person. There will be 40 vendors selling everything you want and didn’t know you needed: handmade clothing and jewelry, live plants, candles, vintage accessories, homemade beauty products, and much more.
House Cat carefully curates the market to highlight the beautifully diverse identities and works of Philadelphia’s artists and businesses. The market will feature artists who are marginalized for their gender, including women, trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming folks, and makers who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) are prioritized.
To shop, there’s a $5 suggested donation, with proceeds benefiting Homies Helping Homies, a mutual aid initiative based in the Point Breeze section of South Philadelphia that’s focused on the distribution of free household essentials. The community raised more than $6,000 for local mutual aid organizations during the last virtual market and Feminist Flea is hoping to hit or exceed that number this time.
BONUS: When you purchase the frozen margarita “The Ave” from the Garden Restaurant bar during the market, $1 from every drink will go to Homies Helping Homies. Now, that’s something to cheers about!
Delaware River Trail Construction: Construction for the exciting Delaware River Trail is happening along Columbus Boulevard. The project is making headway and will result in a stunning multi-use trail that will increase accessibility to the Waterfront. The trail is scheduled for completion in Fall 2021.
