The Clover Market will be in the parking lot at 25 W. Highland Ave. and all along West Highland Ave from the parking lot to Germantown Ave. All street parking is free on Sundays, and the Parking Foundation lots will have a very minimal charge of $1/hr. or $3/6 hrs. and will have parking ambassadors staff to help. The Clover Market is free for all to attend, family and dog-friendly, and can be accessed by car or by train from the Chestnut Hill West and East Lines.

Janet Long founded the Clover Market in 2010, and, since its creation, the market has grown bigger and received a more than a stellar reputation, now appearing in Chestnut Hill, Bryn Mawr, Kennett Square, and Collingswood, N.J. People from all over Chestnut Hill come and gather in the open-air market to find unique and often handcrafted merchandise in an exciting outdoor atmosphere.

The Clover Market promotes creative small business owners and develops community connections with all. The Clover Market’s goal is to give vendors various opportunities to connect with their customers in a safe, friendly environment that is completely free and open to all.

The Clover market has received numerous “Best Of” awards, which include A Best Flea Market to Shop by Philadelphia Magazine, Best Outdoor Shopping Venue by Main Line Today Magazine, Best Vintage Market by Flea Market Style Magazine, and much more.

The seasonal, open market features more than 100 vendors who sell antiques and collectibles, vintage jewelry and clothing, finely crafted handmade items, architectural salvage and original art. Some vendors that will be at the Clover Market are freshvintage, Lackluster Co., LoMo Studio Handcrafted Jewelry, Ivy House Design, Yummy & Company, among many more.

The open market will also include food vendors such as Waffles (sweet and savory), Surf and Turk Truck, Weckery’s Ice Cream, Barry’s Buns, and more, as well as live music from the West Philly Foot Tappers, free hands-on kids crafts from Nest Chestnut Hill and Waldorf School of Philadelphia, with meet and greets and adoptable animals from local animal rescues like Finding Shelter.

Space is also provided to select local nonprofit groups, animal rescues, and arts-based organizations and schools to participate as featured community partners.  Check out the full list of vendors for the event at http://www.theclovermarket.com/vendorlist.
