A Restored Pratt Street
Through improved and restored retail storefronts, renovated residential spaces, and curated programming, Pratt St is being rediscovered.
HARTFORD — Pratt Street in Hartford, which has become a hub of outdoor activity at a time when people are still leery of congregating indoors, plans events for the fall: markets, a disco, a brunch and DJs.
Every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., into the fall, Pratt Street Market will be set up on the street. Shoppers can find locally grown produce, specialty foods, artisan products, handmade crafts and wearable art from about 20 local vendors. A live DJ will provide music. facebook.com/prattstmarket.
