Night Market Philly explored the corridor where the diverse neighborhoods of Francisville, Spring Garden, Fairmount and North Broad connect. These neighborhoods have a thriving mix of local businesses, restaurants, historic architecture and cultural institutions, all in close proximity to Fairmount Park. This Night Market came together in this unique location through support from our joint community partners United Francisville Civic Association, Fairmount CDC, The North Broad Renaissance, Spring Garden Civic Association and Francisville Neighborhood Development Corporation.
