Inspired by Asian night markets, the Moonlight Market Foundation will host its first event in East Village on Saturday, August 26th. According to co-founder Lourdes Juan, the hope is to create a street oriented cultural event that will activate a downtown space in the evening.

The non-profit foundation partnered with CMLC, which operates the East Village, to produce their inaugural event.

More than 24 vendors will be set up from 4 to 10 p.m. in the plaza near the George C. King bridge. 

Similar to the Inglewood Night Market, the Moonlight Market is free and open to all, with no admission price and no gates. While there will be some food trucks and a few retailers, most of the vendors are restaurants and caterers that will be creating Asian street-food inspired dishes that will be offered for $2 to $6.


Here are some of the vendors you can expect to see:

Bro'Kin Yolk
