The Clover Market in the parking lot at 25 W. Highland Ave. returns to Chestnut Hill on Sunday, April 7. The 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 stellar reputation, now appearing in Chestnut Hill, Bryn Mawr, Kennett Square and Collingswood, New Jersey. 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 Market promotes creative small business owners and develops community connections with all. Its 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 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 many 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. Space is also provided to select local nonprofit groups, animal rescues, arts-based organizations and schools to participate as featured community partners.
