Night Market Lands On Washington Avenue Tonight, June 28: Take A Sneak Peek At The Layout And Check Out The Final Food Truck Attendance List
Night Market Washington Avenue is tonight, Thursday, June 28, and it boasts more food than ever before, very cool local art installations, a turbo-charged VIP experience and the debut of the Quest Loves Food VIP Pop-Up.
We’ve gotten our hands on the official Night Market Washington Avenue map, so you can see precisely which food trucks and other vendors will be in attendance, and exactly what the layout is like.
The event kicks off at 6 p.m. and we suggest you arrive as close to then as possible. Every Night Market is packed. But this one’s going to be huge.
Remember you can still book VIP tickets for just $55 (they’re $65 at the door). That gets you access to the Quest Loves Food Pop-Up featuring food and music curated by Questlove, cocktails from Farmers’ Cabinet featuring local liquors from Philadelphia Distilling as well as bottomless beer from Yards.
Otherwise, Night Market is free admission; you just pay as you go for the food that you want.

Italian Market: 9th Street
The awesome thing about Night Market Washington Avenue, centered around the intersection of 9th and Washington, is that you get a vibrant cross-section of the historic Italian Market as well as the ethnic mix of Washington Ave. On 9th Street you’ll find an under-the-stars version of the annual Italian Market Festival, with storefront merchants selling everything from Italian sausage sandwiches to carnitas tacos and handmade pizza.
From 8th to 11th Streets on Washington Avenue, you’ll find a congregation of some of the city’s best food trucks, dishing out everything from Caribbean soul food to Wisconsin fried cheese curds. It’s a melting pot of flavors that really reflects Philadelphia’s palate, and is emblematic of this neighborhood, one of the city’s most eclectic.
Some of the food trucks in attendance include: Buttercream, Dapper Dog, Gigi & Big R, Pitruco Pizza, Nomad Pizza, Lil Dan’s, Jimmie’s Cupcakes, Vernalicious, Yumtown and many, many more.
In addition to the two local artists exhibiting their work in the VIP tent, Night Market includes an entire craft section of vendors curated by Renaissance Craftables. Full list below.
There are three stages of music at the Night Market tonight: one at 11th and Washington, one at 9th and Ellsworth and one at 9th and Christian.
Pick up a brand new Night Market glow-in-the-dark souvenir cup (one for $3, two for $5) and get $1 off Yards beer. You can also sign up for LevelUp near the Yards beer tents and get a free beer plus LevelUp will make a $5 donation to The Food Trust.
