Passeggiata - Shop, Dine, Stroll Wednesday Evenings

May 29, 2019

Stroll, shop, dine & sip during our weekly Farmers' Market + late shopping and happy hours

Throughout the warm months in Italy, residents of small towns enjoy after-work strolls during the evening hours, visiting friends and neighbors, stopping by their favorite restaurants, and spending time in local shops.
To bring those Italian evenings to South Philadelphia, East Passyunk Avenue hosts a late-night shopping and dining event called Passyunk Passeggiata.
Every Wednesday from Memorial Day until November 27, enjoy the Singing Fountain Farmers’ Market brought to us by Farm to City from 3:00 pm-7:00 pm, along with live music and extended boutique hours, seasonal menu specials and al fresco outdoor dining from our neighborhood restaurants. Participating bars and restaurants will also be offering happy hour specials and specially-crafted summer cocktails until 8:00 pm.
Find locally grown and seasonal favorites from Winding Lane Produce, Fruitwood Orchards, Lost Bread, Taste of Puebla, D’Emilio’s Old World Ice Treats, Spring Wind flower farm, The Pasta Lab small-batch pastas and more!
