“New Market At The Shambles,” A Weekly Open-Air Bazaar Of Local Food, Goods And Services, Comes To Headhouse Square Beginning May 11
Entrepreneur Bob Logue of Federal Donuts and Bodhi Coffee is expanding his business developments in Philadelphia to Headhouse Square with an interactive vendor concept rooting from the square’s late 18th century history called “The New Market at The Shambles.”
Inspired by the many neighborhoods of families who worked in factories in our city, “The New Market is a showcase for the skilled workers who are bringing industry and farming back to Philadelphia, a place for our neighbors to buy and sell to each other once again,” says Logue.
With its launch event set for Friday, May 11 from 3-9 p.m., The New Market will be held on most Fridays in May and June and every Friday from July through October.
The open-air market will host a variety of products from local artisans and craftsmen featuring architectural salvage and vintage glass, composting services, industrial furniture design and of course snacks and cocktails accompanied by live music beginning later in the evening at 7:30 p.m.
A great excuse to start your weekends off outdoors, the new shopping destination will provide a weekly rotation of artists and entrepreneurs showcasing their skills.
An updated list of participants will be available online, and if you’re interested in being a part of The New Market send your inquiries to email@example.com.
