Come visit our FRIEDA Holiday Market with goods from the community of Philadelphia like our cookies, fruit preserves and handmade crafts.
Your purchase helps FRIEDA create fair-wage jobs for 18 to 80-year-olds - many of whom are retired but still want to be engaged in a fun and respectful environment, while some need to work to make ends meet.

The FRIEDA baking team is led by David, our Parisian-trained chef, Sandra and non-professional paid recruits from 18 to 80-years old coming from neighborhoods across the city.
For the holiday season, we added new baked goods including Gluten-free cookies and Mini fruit & rum cakes.
This is in addition to our classics: Rugelach with its caramelized bottom, the white and dark chocolate buttons, speculoos with their festive shape or our tender and buttery Mandelbrot. The smell of oranges, rosemary and ginger cooking will fill the space when you visit next time. Enjoy our Strawberry, Rhubarb and Mint Jam, the luscious Lemon Curd or Mixed Berry Jam plus our new Peach and Basil jam among other fruit spreads.
Crafts are handmade by friends of FRIEDA, including cards, ornaments, candlesticks, scarves, felt-boxes and much more! All made in Philadelphia and most of it right here at our community table!
We also feature some design-curiosities from around the world.
