Schedule

Greensgrow is available to host weddings from July through November. Event time is from 5pm–11pm which includes an hour to set up and an hour to clean up.

Capacity

Sit down affairs at Greensgrow are limited to 100 guests. This is because, in case of inclement weather, our indoor space can only accommodate 100 people. For a larger strolling event with up to 250 guests, we can create a layout that includes partial seating for 50 people.

The following caterers represent a broad range of Philadelphia flavors and fit a variety of budgets. Each caterer meets Greensgrow’s mission of supporting local farmers and cooking with local, fresh food.
