Welcome New Businesses!
A special welcome to the new businesses who have joined our community and are helping us to continue making Media a go-to destination for shopping and dining.
Upcoming Events
Dining Under the Stars enters its 4th year bringing a multitude of hungry people to Media every Wednesday evening May through September.  We have some ideas to provide some additional focus to retailers during this year's series.  If you are interested in participating or have some ideas of your own, please contact the MBA.

Media Farmers Market enters its 2nd year, running every Thursday 3-7PM from May 12 through November 17.  Continuing the success of last year's partnership program, the market will be featuring a Media business each week.  For details and signup, contact Brendan MacCurtin:
