Not to sound hokey but it’s nice to see a good plan come together. When the crew from The Food Trust partnered with Mt. Airy USA this winter to host its second Night Market in the neighborhood, they did so with the intent of turning future Mt. Airy Night Markets over to the folks at the community development corp. Now, that plan is coming to fruition as Mt. Airy USA announces its first installment of “Street Fare: Sip, Savor, Stroll.”
On September 19, more than 40 Mt. Airy restaurants, bars and regional food trucks – including some Vendy award winners – will take to Germantown Avenue from 6-10:30pm to showcase the neighborhood’s food and drink scene, as well as that of its craftspeople and retailers. Spots like Avenida, Earth Bread + Brewery and Wine Thief Bistro roll out food and drink to the avenue to join trucks such as The Cow and the Curd and Lil Pop Shop.
Of course there will be kiddie-friendly entertainment, live music on two stages (with a performance by Grammy-nominated Sharon Katz & The Peace Train) and temporary tattoos from Kadillac Tattoo.
Attendance is free. The food and drink are not. However, UBER is providing free rides (up to $25) to new customers.
