Jefferson Plaza East Market
Introducing the new Jefferson Plaza at East Market, one of the largest public spaces in Center City, this vibrant and welcoming plaza brings together the community in the heart of it all. Located adjacent to Jefferson's Honickman Center (opening in 2024) and accessible through East Market's Chestnut Walk, the Jefferson Plaza is a place where people can gather and enjoy the outdoors in a welcoming and inclusive environment. The new public plaza celebrates the community and provides a beautiful and functional gathering spot for Philadelphians to come together, celebrate, and enjoy an urban oasis.
At the center of it all, East Market's Chestnut Walk is not only an accessible connection point between Market and Chestnut Streets but also a place for the community to gather, relax, and play. Enjoy one of East Market's various food purveyors or rotating food trucks, take in the sounds of local live performances, admire local art by Mural Arts of Philadelphia, or join a pop-up fitness class. Chestnut Walk is an active pedestrian throughway for the community to connect and enjoy.
