It’s that time of year again – with the holidays right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll be getting everyone for the holidays this year.
Being that Edgewater residents are situated in a shopping haven like Philadelphia, there are tons of options that offer Philadelphians items both big-name and artisan. Check out our picks below to find out where to hit for your holiday shopping this weekend.
The Christmas Village at City Hall, which is about a mile from your Edgewater apartment, has become a favorite stopping point for busy shoppers. At this market, you’ll find popular gifts from Germany and around the world, including glass ornaments, music boxes, nutcrackers and more. Plus, while shopping, you can snack on gingerbread, bratwurst, and of course, hot mulled wine.
If you’re looking for local products that can’t be found anywhere else, then the Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market, which is about a mile and a half from your Edgewater apartment, is the place to be for all of your shopping needs this December. Returning for its second year, this market features the work of local artists, crafters, confectionaries and designers. Plus, don’t miss out on tasty treats like cupcakes from Pound Cake Heaven and flavored kettle corn from Philly Pop Kettle Corn if you find yourself getting a bit hungry.
During the holiday season, the University City Arts League, which is about two and a half miles from your Edgewater apartment, transforms into a pop-up shop featuring the works of over 30 different local artists. Until Dec. 18, you can head here to find unique gifts that are sure to impress.
