StrEAT Food Festival (see what they did there?) will run along the riverside strip from 11 AM-5 PM, featuring food and drink from throughout the neighborhood.
The event is free to attend - just show up to browse farmers market stands, food-centric arts and crafts and gourmet food vendors stands. More than 25 food trucks will be lined up to provide you with everything from burgers to cupcakes to cheese curd to coffee, and there’s also a restaurant tour highlighting the ingredient of the day - strawberries. Check out a map and schedule here.
Also, note that the Festival serves as the kick-off to Manayunk Restaurant Week, which runs Sunday-Friday, April 14-26. Look for special $10, $20 and $30 prix-fixe menus from 22 local restaurants throughout the event. Manayunk was one of Philly’s original restaurant rows, and it’s back in business.
