PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Mt. Airy is hosting its very first independent street fair on Thursday, September 19th. Fair director Elizabeth Moselle says it’s called “Sip, Savor, Stroll.” She says Germantown Avenue will be shut down for the evening.
“For two years previous to this we’ve partnered with the Food Trust, and we’ve put on a fabulous event with Night Market. We’re huge supporters of Night Market, we love them, but it was time to do our own, new brand and put a Mt. Airy spin on it,” Moselle tells What’s Cooking.

It takes place September 15th through November 1st, and includes a food component. Peter Woolsey, owner of Bistrot La Minette, is one of the culinary participants.
“Global Philly is basically a bunch of events essentially to promote Philadelphia as a global city, as a city with international ties, and really to show the world how fabulous of a city we really are,” Woolsey explains. And he says this event showcases Philadelphia’s broad array of cuisines:
“You can taste the world right here in Philly! You don’t ever have to leave the city.”
