PA-nightmarketThe castle-like modern ruin of Eastern State Penitentiary will make an impressive backdrop for the year’s first Night Market, set for Thursday, May 18. From 6-10 PM, more than 50 street food and drink vendors will be set up along 22nd and Fairmount, joined by live performers offering music and even circus acts.

What can you expect to find at this major food truck gathering? In The Food Trust’s own words: “Tacos, curries, doubles, gyros, samosas, arepas, gazpacho, crepes and poutine. Burgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, pizza, mac ‘n’ cheese and tater tots. Cupcakes, ice cream, cheesecake, macaroons, popsicles, and more!” Combine all that with Yards beer and you’ve got a darn near perfect evening in the making.
