Tag: Night Market
Prepare yourselves, because the annual event thrown by local non-profit and food incubator La Cocina will be more massive than ever, with 85 vendors lining Folsom Street from 20th to 26th Streets on Saturday, plus a Food and Entrepreneurship Conference Sunday and, of course, Friday's Night Market.
The markets are a cheaper version of the food-truck craze but with more choices and a laid-back, chatty atmosphere. For 20 bucks, you can nibble your way through some of the most delicious, and occasionally outlandish, dishes you've never seen. For 20 bucks, I guarantee you'll walk out very full.
Things began to pick up over the next hour, with food truck and vendor lines growing by the minute. Down at the south end of the festival, a crowd of enthralled children took in the Kyo Daiko Japanese Drumming group. Equally entertaining was the Philadelphia School for the Circus Arts, who delighted the audience with their aerial acrobatics and comedic jugglers. Shaun Joseph of Germantown stood on the sidelines with his daughter, Sydney and son, Alexei. His kids loved the juggling acts, Joseph said, but after watching a thrilling fire baton routine, the only thing on young Sydney's mind was ice cream.
