HOLIDAY MARKET INFO
Clover Market’s only holiday Market returns to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in Center City Philadelphia, this year as a TWO DAY SHOW!

HOLIDAY MARKET DATES: DEC 1 + 2, 2018, 11-5 PM BOTH DAYS
WHERE: Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), Hamilton Building, 128 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia. Vendors will be set up indoors in the second floor galleries (view the Market layout here - vendor space assignments will be posted one week prior to the Market). The Museum is directly across from the PA Convention Center and a block and a half north of City Hall & Dilworth Park (<.2 mile).
PAFA’s galleries are accessible for wheelchairs and strollers through the Broad Street entrance. Passenger elevators in both buildings move between floors of galleries. Service animals are welcome.
Additional driving directions and public transit info can be found on the PAFA website.
GIVEAWAY: the first 150 shoppers each day will receive a totebag perfect for carrying all of your lucky finds.
HOLIDAY FUN IN PHILLY: PAFA is easily accessible by car or public transit, and within easy walking distance to several other holiday events including Christmas Village and Love Park, the Rothman Ice Rink and Holiday Market, and the Macy’s and Comcast light shows. Here's a great roundup of all of the fun activities happening just ONE BLOCK AWAY at City Hall. It's easy to make a day of your visit and enjoy all that Philly has to offer at the holidays.
FUN EXTRAS: A festive cash bar will be open both days (21+) in the vendor area, and Starr's Tableau Cafe will be open on the first floor for soups, sandwiches, salads, desserts and beverages (menu here).
