Hucksters showcases the boisterous, bygone culture of Philadelphia’s famous Dock Street produce market. In addition to historical images and ephemera from Dock Street, a gallery of artwork influenced by "Hucksters" and created by local Philadelphia artists will be on display.

The exhibit takes visitors through the market’s city-settler origin, continuing to the mid-1800s when it was “the nerve center of the city’s business and mercantile life”, and ending with the full experience of 1930s-1950s huckster life.
