Night Market in Old City

Media Title

Everyone knows there’s more to this city’s palate than cheesesteaks, soft pretzels and wudder ice—and more to this city’s culture than Center City and the Historical District. Philly’s a network of ‘hoods whose neighbors are merriest while eating, drinking and laughing out loud. So what’s the best way to celebrate community life while having fun at sunset? Since 2010, the roving Night Market has been the answer.

Hopping from neighborhood to neighborhood, the Food Trust’s Night Market mealfests offer an excellent cross-section of wide-ranging dishes showcasing Philadelphia’s diverse tastes. After 12 markets, over 300 vendors, and more than 200,000 happily-full bellies, it has stayed true to its mission of making healthier food choices more accessible in Philly. By giving local bars, restaurants and food trucks an opportunity to reach large crowds in one place at one time, these events are real can’t-miss casual affairs.

Night Market Old City, 2014’s first, gives the eastern-most hub of weekend revelry an opportunity to grant its goers access to both ethnic and regional fare, while providing a stage for the robust arts and culture scene the ‘hood is known for. Featuring more than 85 vendors—a Night Market record so far—attendees can expect to see faves like Panorama, Han Dynasty, Serrano, Continental, The Franklin Fountain, Amada and many others during their night out. Plus, Johnny Showcase and the Lefty Lucy Cabaret are set to bring their special style of psychedelic soul and funk-rock, adding just the right amount of oomph to plates full of food, fun and something distinctly Philadelphian. // KENNEDY ALLEN
