    This Sunday, the streets of Chestnut Hill will be lined with some of the coolest vendors around. The wildly popular outdoor Clover Market that’s had Ardmore hopping for the last few years is coming to Philly.

    When: Sunday, Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.Where: 25 W. Highland Ave. in Chestnut HillHow: Drive and park, or take the Chestnut Hill East or West line to the last stop

    What: Clover Market is a selective collection of artisans and vendors showcasing wares from jewelry, furniture, and vintage finds to monster hoodies and original art. While it’s a diverse group of sellers, the theme of the market is tasteful, cool, and fun.

    I scoped out the Ardmore market earlier this month and spotted many fun things that might catch the eye of kids and their grownups as they shop this weekend on The Hill. Here’s a smattering of five kid-friendly vendors you’ll see at the market:

    Lisa Hurwitz’s fabulous paper dolls and original artwork

    Monster hoodies from Cutesy but not Cutesy

    Repurposed t-shirt skirts from Sardine

    Amazing sculptures from Mary-Lynne Moffatt

    Those are just a sampling. My kids particularly enjoy finding small treasures and vintage toys. At the last Clover Market, I found a set of the same tin cups my grandmother served us jello in when I was a little girl. We scooped those up, and my seven-year-old has been hoarding them ever since.

    A Halloween parade starting at O’Doodles Toy Store on Germantown Avenue will kick off at 1 p.m. The parade will make its way through the Market before heading down the Avenue to trick-or-treating.

    When you get hungry, there are many lovely restaurants on The Hill and food trucks will be there to whet your appetite as well. Sunday’s weather looks perfect for a day spent shopping at the Clover Market in Chestnut Hill.
