Reminder! The University City Night Market is This Thursday, 6-10 pm

Just a reminder that a special, Philly Beer Week edition of Night Market will be rolling into University City this Thursday from 6-10 p.m. Find this traveling circus of street food, artisan crafters, performers, restaurant vendors and more set up in on the surface parking lot at 39th and Market Streets.

For those of you who attended last fall’s first Night Market, don’t be put off by the crowds that swamped that event. This is a bigger venue and the vendors will be better prepared for the crowds (they’re really working hard to ensure that they don’t run out of food until the bitter end). Admission to Night Market is free, the food and drink is pay as you go. Beer will be available from the garden adjacent to the Blockley. We recommend that you head over early and come hungry!
