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.
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.
You are free to choose your own caterer for your wedding, though we do ask you to keep our mission in mind when you make your choice. We prefer to work and promote caterers that emphasize local, fresh foods and sustainable practices.
Greensgrow has relationships with the following caterers, and recommends their work. 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.
