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.
