Night Market returns Thursday

The Food Trust’s Night Market is coming to Cottman and Rising Sun avenues tomorrow night.


The Food Trust’s overwhelmingly popular Night Market will return to Cottman and Rising Sun avenues on Thursday, May 17, from 6 to 10 p.m.

Last year, an estimated 10,000 people attended the food, beverage and live music extravaganza in Burholme.

This year, hip-hop recording artist Freeway will perform at 9 p.m. At Rising Sun and Tyson avenues, there will be music, a juice bar, free health checks and a screening of Freeway’s documentary, Think Free.

The evening will also include a performance by the alternative rock band Stealing From Thieves, caricature drawings, children’s activities and a WHYY listening booth.

Future Night Market events are set for 13th and Locust streets in the “Gayborhood” (June 21, 7–11 p.m.), Frankford Avenue and York Street in Kensington (Aug. 9, 6–10 p.m.) and 20th and Federal streets in Point Breeze (Oct. 4, 6–10 p.m.). ••
