On certain Wednesdays in the summer, South Street has certainly been the place to be.
The South Street Headhouse District’s inaugural biweekly initiative called the “Meet Me on South Street Night Market” has brought great food, vendors, music and games as a way to highlight the small businesses that thrive along the trendy stretch in South Philly.
Every other Wednesday, the party shifts to a different block. For the purpose of safety, It’s closed off to vehicles, but the good vibes are able to navigate freely.
“It’s really just about bringing back those vibes,” said Katrina Johnston-Zimmerman, assistant director of the South Street Headhouse District. “If you feel safe and comfortable and are making memories, or even if you’re just strolling through on your way to something else, it just kind of changes your attitude about the entire place.”
