The Farmers Market at Christ Church
Join us one block away from the site of Philadelphia's original 18th-century farmers market on High (now Market) Street -- the market that gave Market Street its name. The Farmers Market at Christ Church is one of Neighborhood House's most popular and impactful programs. The market is open every Wednesday 3-7 p.m., rain or shine, on Church Street between 2nd and American Streets until November 24. Visit the Farmers Market page for more information and optional pre-ordering.
Originally built by Christ Church to serve low-income residents of Old City, Neighborhood House opened its doors in 1915. Since then, the building has functioned as a soup kitchen, a meeting house, an athletic facility, and a performance venue—in the late 1990s, local performing artists gravitated towards the brick-walled gymnasium on the uppermost floor. The program of Neighborhood House solidified around that community demand, and the theater advanced with it. In 2010, the building was renovated to be fully ADA-accessible, including the addition of an elevator, and the fourth floor gymnasium adapted into a state-of-the-art "brick box" theater.
Meeting, rehearsal, reception and performance rooms are available to arts and culture groups and community-based organizations at reduced rates. Neighborhood House is also available for conference and corporate rentals.
