In 2010, we created Night Market to bring communities together to celebrate the joy of food. Over the years, it's become so much more: an opportunity for local entrepreneurs to grow their businesses, a catalyst for community engagement, a creator of jobs and economic growth.
On Thursday, October 3, we hosted the 36th and final Night Market. We've held events in 25 diverse neighborhoods, working with 45 community partners, organizations and city agencies. We've supported well over 600 local food entrepreneurs and hundreds of local artists, performers and arts organizations. We've brought nearly 700,000 attendees together, with an average of 20,000 people per event.
Night Market has been so much more than a food truck festival, and none of it would have been possible without you.
From 2010 to 2019, Night Market Philadelphia enlivened communities, empowered entrepreneurs and created culinary destinations. Here’s how:
Since our start in 2010, we've worked with 332 unique vendors, including food trucks, restaurants, caterers and other local food entrepreneurs.
25 different neighborhoods have hosted Night Market, representing all corners of Philadelphia.
Night Market is proud to have showcased Philadelphia’s best food and attractions to hundreds of thousands of locals and visitors from across the region.
