Philly: Night Market – Mount Airy Edition

by Kelly O’Shea |

Check out the Food Trust’s third installment of the Philadelphia Night Market series in Mount Airy this Thursday, August 4th, from 6 to 10 p.m. The Night Market is a roving outdoor street fair which celebrates and showcases Philly’s diverse food culture. On Thursday, local restaurant booths and gourmet food trucks will line two blocks of Germantown Avenue between Sedgwick and Mt. Airy Avenues.

You’ll find many of your favorite trucks from previous markets as well as some local Mount Airy flavor, like Avenida Restaurant, which will be offering tostadas and homemade sangria to wash it all down. There will also be special food truck appearances by Vendy Cup award-winners Gigi & Big R Caribbean and Sweetbox Cupcakes, as well as local brews from Earth Bread + Brewery and McMenamins.

Want to burn off some of  those calories? Why not dance a little? This edition of Night Market will feature live entertainment from Philly-native jazz percussionist Doc Gibbs and his band, along with music from UCC Royal Brass Band and Universal African Dance & Drum Ensemble.

Admission to Night Market is free, but the food and drink are pay-as-you-go.
