Live in Port Richmond and looking for some weekend afternoon fun? Or curious about the neighborhood? Check out Second Saturday , a street festival/open house that's proof that Philly's food truck trend has officially caught on in all parts of the city. This weekend's event will feature many beloved area vendors (we love you Port Richmond Books!) and mom-and-pop style businesses including a visit from some of Philly's hottest food trucks like the Tot Cart (yes, really!), as well as Trophy Bikes and Philadelphia Brewing Co. Bikes, beer, tots, a classic car show, and Polish goodies from Krakus Market? Sounds like a winning Saturday to us!

Richmond Street will be closed to thru traffic between Allegheny Avenue and E Clearfield Street. Attendees are encouraged not to drive but to bicycle, walk, or take SEPTA’s 15 or 25 bus routes.

Is Port Richmond the Next Hot ‘Hood?

The Inquirer makes a case for Port Richmond in this spotlight on one of our favorite neighborhoods.  But it's not just the awesome pierogi and Polish specialties that makes Port Richmond hot. The article points out something that we have indeed been noticing, that Port Richmond is getting younger, with its affordable pricing drawing in buyers, mainly in their late 20s and early 30s. Our own Chris Somers of the Somers Team was quoted in the article:

"The sections of [zip code] 19125 that are not really Fishtown still get more attention, such as East Kensington west of Frankford Avenue and north of York Street [Old Richmond]," Somers said. "[Yet] Port Richmond as well as Bridesburg attract the younger buyer, too, and the price points are quite affordable."

If you're looking for a great deal outside of Center City, all signs are pointing towards Port Richmond.

Curious about Port Richmond? Here are two amazing properties worth checking out. Both homes are priced under $190,000.
