Let’s face it, everything comes alive in the night time, so why would markets be any different – the festivities are just so much better!
Night markets are definitely the new craze at the moment, and there’s no doubt in our mind that next week there be a new one, SO, we decided it would be a good idea to put together a short yet SWEET list of the GO-TO night markets this year in the United States.
626 Night Market - Arcadia California
A famous US night market that got its name from the area code of San Gabriel Valley. Most well-known for being a ‘food market’; the 626 market has a China Town-esque aesthetic – potstickers, dumplings, noodles – we can just SMELL the sticky goodness! Other than serving delicious food, the market all provides world-class entertainment and music – who doesn’t like to have a little boogie with their Pad Thai?
This isn’t your ordinary night market – it is an initiative AS WELL as a fun family affair! Founded in 1992,The Food Trust, has one mission in mind and that is to ensure everyone has access to affordable and nutritious food – a right that should be available to all, regardless of whether they can afford it or not. They pop up all over so stay tuned and support this worthy cause – make sure to have your 5 a day!
A New York market with a BYO-Picnic – YES PLEASE! This is a night market made for all age groups with a variety of cuisines, such as Chinese, Mauritian, Burmese – if it’s exotic, they’ve got it! Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city life and wind down with the fam and watch some live music – you won’t regret it!
It’s all in the name really. This market got its name for being known as an ‘underground’ night market – its rarely known about, but it’s said that all the cool kids go, SO better get there before its too cool to be ‘cool’ – you know what it’s like! The market was originally linked to being sponsored byVans,but it is now so much more than a sponsorship – it showcases local talent in Chicago, in the form of DJs, chefs and artists.
This night market has taken a slightly different approach to the norm of ‘night markets. The market blends culture, food, AND retail which in turn results in an all-round over-sensory experience – not to mention they have wine. The vintage goodies also give this market character, be sure to catch the festivities twice a month in the quirky town of Portland Oregon
There it is folks, the top 5 markets that just simply CANNOT be missed this year in the US, be sure to get tickets and tell EVERYONE!Vansmay be a sponsor for one of the markets, but we ALL know VELDSKOEN® shoes are the chosen ones, here and ALWAYS!
5/5 stars. I've owned Bata, Courteney, livingstone, etc.... These are the best vellies. Not to mention they're ALREADY IN THE USA! So you wait 2-3 days to get them instead of 2-3 months(no kidding). A tip with vellies.. No socks.. If you want to break them in quick put them under steaming water and wear them around the house for 4-5 hours or till dry. AND MAGIC! they conform to your feet and saves you blisters! The leather is sooooo smooth and feels GREAT on your feet. I have 3 pair of Veldskoen Brand vellies and looking forward to getting the new high tops soon!
My husband is South African and almost exclusively wears vellies. I finally gave in and bought a pair for myself and not only are they super cute but they are comfortable and hold up well when we are walking potato fields! Love these!
