Occupying three Center City blocks, Fashion District Philadelphia — which opened in September — has transformed the old Gallery mall into a destination for retail, offering 800,000 square feet of flagship, full-price, off-price and branded outlet shopping.

But shopping isn’t the only way to get in on the fun at the new Market East space.

Visitors can also explore an edible candy museum (Candytopia), grab a glass of wine made on premises (City Winery), catch a movie (AMC Theatre) and check out more than $1 million (!) of curated public art throughout the district.

Plus, soon-to-come attractions include Wonderspaces, a rotating exhibition space; bowling, karaoke and more at Round 1 Bowling & Amusement; and the arrival of Primark at 11th & Market streets.
