Last year, Philly’s new waterfront destination, Cherry Street Pier, opened on the Delaware River as an indoor/outdoor artist studio and retail space with food trucks, a garden, and a lineup of festivals. Starting Saturday, July 13, add a farmers market to that list. The nonprofit Food Trust, known for its hugely popular Night Market series, is heading to Cherry Street Pier with a weekly market selling fresh produce, cheeses, chocolates, dumplings, pasta, Vietnamese coffee, and more. The Food Trust’s Market at Cherry Street Pier will pop up at every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through November 16.
Vendors are still being added, but here’s the market lineup so far:
- Dumplings and spring rolls with non-traditional fillings from Dump N Roll
- Vietnamese coffee from Càphê Roasters
- Drinking chocolate from La Chocolatera
- Banana whips with a mostly vegan selection of toppings at The Chilly Banana
- Breads and pastries from High Street on Market
- Pound cake and other baked goods from Pound Cake Heaven
- Mexican fare from Philly Tacos
- Pasta from Little Noodle Pasta Co.
- Ramen and Korean fried chicken from Slurp
- Cheese from Birchrun Hills Farm
- Vegetables from Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative and from Potato Homestead
- Fruit from Sharrah Orchards
- Fruit and baked goods from Frecon Farms
There will also be vendors selling flowers, soaps, and housewares.
The Food Trust, founded in 1992, collaborates with neighborhoods, schools, grocers, farmers and policymakers to make healthy food easier to access. The organization’s next Night Market is August 15 in Fairmount.
