Your Guide To The Callowhill Night Market

Night Market hits Callowhill with about 70 food and drink vendors, including newbies like the Rio Brazilian Steak Truck, Roe Thai and Japanese and Sweet Nectar Delights. Nearby PhilaMOCA has curated an evening of local tunes, Dance Philadelphia will be performing, and suds will be available via the Underground Arts beer garden and Penn Distributors. Thursday, June 18th, 6-10 pm, free, 13th and Callowhill streets.

So here we are–mere hours away from the start of the Callowhill Night Market which will bring together 70-some food trucks and vendors (plus beer and live music and tee shirts and all the usual weirdness that comes when you pack tens of thousands of Philadelphians together in one place and make them stand in line for tacos) for a one-night party unrivaled by any other food event in the city.

Whether this is your first Night Market or your tenth, whether you’re comfortable hanging out with 20,000 of your closest friends or nervous about the mob scene, whether you’re laser-focused on just ONE THING YOU MUST EAT BEFORE THE END OF THE NIGHT or (like us) planning on trying everything on offer (and the good stuff twice), we’re here to help you get the most out of your Night Market experience. Check out our battle-tested advice below, and make note of the picks we’ve made for the must-hit trucks of tonight’s event.

Vetri Looking to Expand to Devon and Beyond

pizzeria-vetri-940It’s been clear since the get go that Marc Vetri, Jeff Benjamin and the rest of the Vetri Family team planned to expand their Pizzeria Vetri concept beyond Philadelphia. And now through their connections with Urban Outfitters, they’ve locked up their first out-of-market location. Benjamin tells Danya Heninger for Billy Penn that the Pizzeria Vetri will be opening next to an Austin Urban Outfitters.

Closer to home, Vetri’s restaurants could become part of Urban Outfitters’ lifestyle village in Devon. That project is slated to include an Urban Outfitters store plus a Terrain and Anthropologie, as well as 138-unit apartment building and restaurants. Though the deal isn’t finalized, Benjamin tells Heninger that there will likely be more than one Vetri Family restaurant in the Devon Yard project.

The second branch of Vetri Family’s Pizzeria Vetri opens today at 1615 Chancellor Street (between Walnut and Locust Streets). The second Pizzeria Vetri shares a lot in common with the original, though it is about 500 square feet bigger. Part of that room goes to establishing a true bar with eight seats. Another similarity is the Renato pizza oven that will pump out pizzas daily from 11 am to 11 pm (1 am on weekends).

Postmates, a-kind-of-Uber-for-delivery service has launched in Philadelphia and they’re partnering with Pizzeria Vetri on a swell deal.

Today and tomorrow, you can use Postmates’ app for a mid-week pizza party. From 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., you can order Pizzeria Vetri’s Best of Philly winning rotolo appetizer and pizza (Margherita, Marinara or Renato) for just $10. Normally that would run you $16.50 to $18.50 and Postmates is paying for the delivery fee too. So this a really good deal. So good I ordered it myself yesterday.
