Headhouse Farmers Market

A seasonal destination for farm-fresh groceries al fresco

M190o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr

Held every Sunday beneath the historic Headhouse Shambles, The Food Trust’s largest weekly farmers market also happens to be its most popular and well-attended. Look for a rotating roster of food trucks in addition to local vendors.

Fabric Row

A historic destination for textiles and tailors

Textile shoppers have made pilgrimages to Fabric Row, a thoroughfare of 4th Street between South and Christian Streets, for more than a century. Today it’s home to both third-generation fabric vendors and a new generation of boutiques and businesses.

Ela

Sophisticated supping in an elegant Queen Village bistro

Chefs Chip Roman and Jason Cichonski preside over this rustic urban American restaurant. Roman also runs noteworthy Blackfish and Mica; Cichonski came from Rittenhouse Square’s Lacroix. The dinner and Sunday brunch menus feature deliciously esoteric ingredients: Huckleberry, pumpernickel spaetzle and whiskey pears have all been known to make appearances.

L’Etage

Dance (or laugh) the night away tucked inside this hidden-in-plain-sight cabaret

{alt}

This elegant second-floor lounge (upstairs from Creperie Beau Monde, see above) has a u-shaped bar, curtained booths and a petite dance floor that hosts both dancers and cabaret artists. DJs, improv companies, comedians and cross-dressing lounge acts are among the talents here.

Blue Belly BBQ

Stick-to-your-ribs sandwiches and smoky meats

Across the street from elder sister restaurant Cochon (see Bella Vista section), this tiny spot offers meat a bit more casually—international barbecue-style. Sandwiches come stuffed with slow-roasted pig, Korean beef, lamb barbacoa, jerk chicken, homemade “double dogs” or grilled falafel.
