The following is the MABA Membership Directory, listed alphabetically. For listing by category, see the Category page. Only MABA members are listed here. If you are a business and would like to join MABA and receive a free listing below, please see the information on the MABA Benefits page. There is a $25 fee to make changes to a member’s listing paid to the webmaster. The diversity of the Association membership is reflected in the nearly 40 categories in which members have been grouped. There could easily have been more. Many businesses and organizations offer multiple services and are cross-referenced in more than one category. Clicking on a category will take you to that category and a list of MABA members offering that particular service. Business name, logo, contact person, address, telephone and FAX numbers, e-mail and web site addresses, and brief descriptions of the business/organization are provided. If you already know the name of the business you are looking for, then use the alphabetical directory, just as you would the telephone book. Please peruse these directories often, and patronize and shop Mt. Airy.

The Sedgwick Cultural Center, dedicated to building community through the arts,
provides a common meeting ground in the heart of Philadelphia’s Northwest
where neighbors can celebrate individual perspectives and shared visions though the arts.

The Sedgwick produces and presents a broad spectrum of quality programming
in visual and performing arts for children, teens and adults. Reflecting the energy,
creativity, and rich diversity of this community, it brings together artists and audiences
of the many ethnic backgrounds, religious traditions, age groups and socio-economic
levels who are at home in this historically interracial community. In addition, the Sedgwick
strengthens the public life of its community by attracting audiences to Mt. Airy’s
Germantown Avenue not only from Northwest Philadelphia but also from the wider
Philadelphia region.
