A little bit of this and a little bit of that– HartfordHodgePodge brings food, fun and families to Pratt Street this Autumn.

Food, music, entertainment, and shopping cleverly fuse into a refreshing and funky experience at Hartford HodgePodge. The free open-air market is the first of its kind in Downtown Hartford, offering good eats and fresh beats on Pratt Street this fall. Beginning Sunday, October 14th market-goers can explore market vendors, street performers, artisan food and discover music at the stage. Every week offers different vendors, a different theme and a little something special. Opening Day, October 14th, is Hooker’s HodgePodge: Thomas Hooker found Hartford
in 1635, when will you?

Hartford HodgePodge has already garnered strong community support, and is anticipated to become a permanent seasonal fixture in the urban community. This free, public event runs every Sunday through November 18th, from 12:00p to 6:00p

“The Hartford HodgePodge is a manifestation of the widespread passion for revitalizing Downtown,” says TJ Clynch, President of Civic Mind Studios. “Downtown is an inspired community putting forth its greatest efforts to showcase the best qualities of the City through the
local vendors and area events slated to join the HodgePodge.”

On-Street parking in Hartford is always free on Sundays (note restrictions on signage) and often free on Sundays at the Morgan Street Garage. Market adjacent parking is available in the ProPark lot at the corner of Main and Asylum Street for only $6.
