Grand opening of the Piazza at Schmidt's marketplace

This weekend (noon to 7 p.m.) marks the grand opening of the Market at the Piazza, in which 200 vendors will go into business in the Piazza at Schmidt's, just south of Second Street and Girard Avenue in Northern Liberties.

Tower Investments, which owns the development, intends this as a year-round venue. I hear that an indoor space is being prepared for fall.
