When you talk economics, you hear a lot about markets. There is a market that seems to have grown spontaneously over the last year down on Torresdale Avenue. It’s happening every weekend and I walked through there Sunday morning to take a look. There is a heck of a lot of stuff: Clothes, toys, household goods, furniture, almost everything you can imagine.
If you have been to Europe, you may have seen some of the famous flea markets over there. This is a link to the Rastro, Madrid’s famous flea market. We should be so lucky but now it looks like Frankford has a unique informal version of our own.
Its runs roughly from Berkshire Street down to Adams Avenue on Torresdale Avenue. Lots of folks selling stuff. Take a look.

Is it terrible that I never recognized this as a legitimate flea market, but thought it was a homeless junk market?
Now I’m more inclined to stop by next time I pass it.
It’s one of those things you see that just happen. If you drive through the city, in the less affluent areas, there are a few of these things that I have tripped over lately. Some are just individuals and then some are this kind of thing that attracts a lot more.
