Great Eats at the Southeast Asian Market in FDR Park

July 29 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

On Saturday July 29 at 11 am, APT Board Secretary Jenn Hensell will lead the Association of Philadelphia Tour Guides (APT) on a field trip for some great eating and picnicing at the Southeast Asian Market in FDR Park. If you are not familiar with it, this is your chance to learn more! You can read what the Inquirer had to say about it here. Bring cash, a lawn chair or picnic blanket, and a bag for leftovers. No cost to attend and participants are responsible for their own purchases. Email Marianne at  to register and receive parking/starting point information. It looks like public transportation is available but if it will be an issue for you, let Marianne know and we’ll look into carpooling.

The Southeast Asian Market in FDR Park is a community of refugees and immigrant members who have called the Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) Park their home since the 1980’s. For 35+ years they have cultivated an open community space all their own, providing a cultural hub for social gatherings, sharing of ethnic cuisines and business opportunities. The vending community has blossomed from the original Lao and Khmer sellers, expanding to Thai, Vietnamese and Indonesian vendors — each a part of the Southeast Asian refugee and immigrant narrative of Philadelphia, having found a haven in FDR Park. Here you can enjoy many native cuisine dishes, culturally specific produce, plants, clothing and jewelry, as well as services provided by entrepreneurs speaking multiple languages.

It’s an awesome opportunity – please join us!
