New Saturday Market at High Street

High Street market constructionThis month, I’ve been bursting to tell you about a new collaboration with one of my favorite Philadelphia restaurants, High Street. Saturday marks the official debut of their new green market in Old City — a French-style stand in front of the restaurant where you can buy beautiful produce and flowers, plus meet a revolving cast of local makers and shakers that I’ve helped curate.

I’ve pulled together some of the area’s most delectable characters — from cheesemakers to fermentation gurus to fellow food bloggers — for a biweekly showcase of the region’s food scene. Check out the calendar below, and come out for brunch or lunch at High Street or its sister restaurant, Fork. Or, stop by for a loaf of High Street sourdough and some market radishes for a picnic in Washington Square Park. I’ll be there this Saturday to help kick the market off with cheesemaker Sue Miller of Birchrun Hills Farm.

Every Saturday, the market’s anchors will be two young local growers who serve some of the city’s best restaurants, Jack Goldenberg and Teddy Moynihan of Plowshare Farms. High Street’s beautiful plates and bowls, created by local ceramics crew Felt + Fat, will also be available. This new market — part of Chef Eli Kulp‘s original vision for the restaurant — supports High Street’s mission to serve the community, at the table and beyond. Come feel the love!

    Lovely! I will try to make a few of things! I was just at headhouse this past Sunday. I got to see Sue and Mikey G. and bought some lovely Curry Sauerkraut from Food and Ferments (and cheese of course)!

      Oh, terrific! It will be great to see you, Lala. I’m curious to try that curry sauerkraut — bet it’s good alongside a stinker.
