This year’s Night Markets have been announced, and I am especially excited to share that Callowhill will be hosting one for the first time! The market will run from Broad to 10th Street along Spring Garden Street for one night, on June 18th.
If you haven’t been to a past Night Market event, here’s a brief explanation of what it’s all about:
“Night Market Philadelphia is the city’s premier street food festival, a roving food event spotlighting Philly’s best ethnic and regional restaurants and food trucks. Inspired by Asia’s lively outdoor markets, our events celebrate up-and-coming neighborhoods and showcase Philadelphia’s diverse food and drinks and vibrant arts and culture scene.
The first Night Market took place in East Passyunk in 2010. Since its debut, The Food Trust has hosted fifteen Night Markets, attracting over 200,000 attendees and more than 300 food vendors to neighborhoods across the city, including University City, Lancaster Avenue, Northern Liberties, West Oak Lane, Washington Avenue, Mt. Airy, Fairmount, South Street, Old City and Chinatown, and attracting local and national attention to Philadelphia’s food scene.”
