The 2013 Food Trust’s Night Market Philadelphia has been announced. The following dates are scheduled:
May 16th – Fairmount Avenue
June 20th – West Oak Lane
August 15th – South Street
October – Chinatown
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. In 2011 and 2012 The Food Trust has hosted another seven Night Markets, attracting well over 100,000 attendees and 300 food vendors to neighborhoods across the city, including University City, Northern Liberties, Washington Avenue, Mt. Airy and Chinatown, and attracting local and national attention to Philadelphia’s food scene. Previous Night Markets can be visited here.
