Whether you’re out for one of the Avenue’s signature special events, like Flavors of the Avenue or Second Saturday, perusing the weekly farmers market and gourmet Italian and specialty shops, or you just want to take a walk down memory lane to see what’s new and walk off that cheese steak or home-made pasta, East Passyunk is a wonderful place to take a stroll.

Looking for a new unique, fashion forward look from a small boutique that will guarantee you an entrance and not break the bank? Got ‘em. Need new (or super cool vintage) furniture? Got that. Handmade clothing and jewelry? Garden supplies and flowers? A doctor or daycare? The first eco-friendly baby accessory shop in the region? Got them, too. Home-made cheese and organic groceries and locally-grown produce and…. Yep, we have that too. Click here to browse the 150 independently-owned shops and businesses of East Passyunk Avenue.
