Night Market #3 in Mt. Airy was a raging success last Thursday, pulling in upwards of 5,000 hungry and thirsty local eaters.

During the second, previous installment of the night market, in University City, Philly Homegrown got a chance to chat with Duff Goldman from Charm City Cakes in Baltimore and Ace of Cakes on the Food Network, who waxed no less than poetic about Philadelphia’s vibrant local food scene.

Some choice quotes:

• “This is probably my favorite food town in the United States.”

• “If you’re from Philly and you’re listening to this, please know that the rest of the world looks at Philly and they’re jealous of your food. I promise. And if you’re not from Philly, and you’ve never been here and you’re thinking about coming somewhere to the East Coast, come to Philly and eat the food because the food. Is. Amazing.”

We heart you too, Duff.

Check out the full Night Market video here. Duff shows up at 0:48, 2:37 and 2:53.
