Night Market Unveils Its Summer Plans

First up: Northeast Philly.

A Night Market in Chinatown is one thing. A nightclub's quite another.

A Night Market in Chinatown

Every summer since 2010, Night Market has given Philadelphians a reason to get outside and hang out with one another, many times in neighborhoods not their own. It’s a once-a-month food truck festival hosted by the Food Trust showcasing — through food trucks, live music, twinkly lights, and beer — our diversity as a city-of-neighborhoods, encouraging South Philadelphians to eat in Roxborough, and ‘Yunkers to stroll through Old City. It’s a neat thing they do, and every year, we’re excited to see what’s up for the summer.

And 2017 begins in the Northeast — Burholme to be exact.

On May 11th, from 6-10 p.m., the intersection of Cottman and Rising Sun Avenues known as “Five Points”,  will be abuzz with dozens of food and drink vendors, live music, and activities for kids. And that’s a cool thing since the Northeast is quietly one of the most ethnically diverse food centers in the entire city.

The rest of the schedule goes as follows:

  • Thursday, May 11: Burholme (Cottman & Rising Sun)
  • Thursday, June 29: Spruce Hill (40th & Walnut)
  • Thursday, August 10: Roxborough (Ridge & Green)
  • Thursday, October 5: Italian Market (Ninth & Washington)
