FIVE | 2018â€” INCLUDES SUMMERONMARKET POSTER
This was your #SummerOnMarket. You people get around. You captured the pulsing energy of Ladybug Music Festival and caught the groove at the People’s Fest. You came hungry as new restaurants opened: Stitch House Brewery, Farmer & the Cow, Margaux, 218 Grille, Bardea. You’re Local + Famous and hung your art inside the gallery at DCAD for all to see. You danced. You stopped traffic. You had drinks after work. You got married. You brought the kids. You walked your dog. You met a parrot. You moved in. We asked, you shared — and we’ve captured your experience in our annual #summeronmarket poster. This was your summer. You did it all on Market.
LIVE MEET TASTE SHOP
“People don’t realize how much is happening on Market — we sometimes take it for granted, having lived and worked and played here for so long.” - Brianna Hansen, IN Wilmington campaign manager, with daughter (and INWilm sidekick) Harlo.
“I was 36 when we opened the first
BrewHaHa! It’s been 25 years. And now I’m in a period where you start thinking about all those hopes and dreams you had, all those things you wanted to do some day.”
ALISA MORKIDES BrewHaHa! | 824 N. Market St.
The Ladybug Music Festival
#TASTE MARGAUX “This is French cuisine. This is French brasserie food. You don’t see that on a lot of menus. These are the dishes that you’d find at the little cafés or brasseries in France and the foods that you’ll have as a snack with a glass of wine or a beer.” - Soufiane Lailani, Margaux | 902 N. Market St.
â€œI want to be known for the best wings in Wilmington, and thatâ€™s my thing. It was important for us to try to bring something different, and the difference for us is the smoke. All of our meats are smoked, and that creates the flavor down to the bone.â€? - Darril Guilford, owner 218 Grille | 218 N. Market St.
There was a fierce battle between two of Delaware’s best burger joints — separated by only five blocks on Market. BEST BURGERS ON MARKET: Chelsea Tavern | 821 N. Market St. Farmer & The Cow | 413 N. Market St. After two rounds of judging, 19 burgers, and so much bacon, the final round of the 2018 Delaware Burger Battle ended in a dead heat between Chelsea Tavern and Farmer & The Cow, a numerical tie for first place. The scores forced a vote among the three judges to break the tie. And the winner of the 2018 Critics’ Choice Award for Best Burger, in a split decision: Chelsea Tavern’s “Delaware Destroyer.” (F&C proved a popular favorite, finishing second in the People’s Choice category as well.)
THE RESIDENCES AT MID-TOWN PARK:
“It has everything you could possibly ask for – There’s a pool table, a movie theater, and the pool. There’s a pergola with great lawn furniture. There’s a fireplace with some grills. It’s a great spot. Backyard living in the middle of the city.” - Alexa Brancato, one of complex’s first residents.
JUST OFF MARKET: “I’ve teamed up with Downtown Visions. They’re doing all the technical mumbo jumbo, and I book all the bands. Brandon Vincent Jackson gets the comedians. I’m a rock musician, with a punk rock background, so I wanted to do something a little more loud, a little more edgy, and get those bands that you see at the Oddity Bar and 1984 and bring them downtown. So far it’s been going well.” - David Sanchez, Spaceboy Clothing, event founder.
“Keep It Cool” music, art and comedy series, taking place just one block off Market at 4th Street.
