[Recap] The Stop's Night Market 2016

Sunday, June 26, 2016

On June 14th and 15th, thousands of people came together to celebrate diversity, community, and the power of food at the fifth annual The Stop's Night Market.

The vacant lot behind 158 Sterling Road was transformed into a brilliant culinary adventure with lights, photo booths, food & drink vendors, musical performances and wonderfully designed food carts made by local designers.

All of the guests, chefs, vendors, designers, sponsors, and volunteers in attendance dedicated their time and generosity in coming together to fight hunger, build hope and inspire change.

This was my first year attending The Stop's Night Market and I must say that it is one of the best food events I’ve ever been to.  Your ticket purchase includes all-you-can-eat and drink from over 70 chefs and 20 beverage vendors in attendance.
