Night Market – Fairmount

Food Trucks Invade Fairmount

The Food Trust held yet another Night Market on May 16 — this time in the Fairmount section of the city. Night Market features a wide variety of food trucks and vendors that offer endless types of foods. The roving event has previously taken place in neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia including East Passyunk, University City, Bella Vista, Chinatown, Mt. Airy, and Northern Liberties. In addition to food, Night Market usually includes live music, interesting drinks, and this time around coincided with free tours of the famous Eastern State Penitentiary. Thousands of people came out to enjoy the food and the good weather along Fairmount Avenue and Corinthian Avenue, as you’ll see in some of the pictures below. I shot this event for The Food Trust and the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation (GPTMC). Here are a few of my favorite photos from the night, or you can view The Food Trust’s image gallery on Facebook. The next Night Market will be held on June 20 in the West Oak Lane section of the city.
