With ramen from Menya Jiro, arepas from MozzArepas and much more, Night Market is taking over Jersey City once again this year, starting on April 1. Live DJs, activities, games, and a “Small Bites for a Small Price” motto make Night Market the go-to for local foodies who love a good time. Cost-friendly as well—the market features items starting at $5 to ensure that attendees have the opportunity to try multiple dishes and entry is totally free!
JC Night Market is the all-ages answer to the also popular Midnight Market—which is centered more around nightlife.
Introducing global-inspired flavors, innovative pairings, and local charm, Night Market was conceptualized with small businesses in mind. The event gives these businesses exposure, often resulting in networking opportunities and an increase in revenue.
While Midnight Market is geared toward adults 21 or older, Jersey City Night Market welcomes pets and people of all ages in a walkable, open-air environment. The City Hall Ancillary Lot will host the now family-friendly event on April 1, June 3, August 5, and October 7.
Admission is free and the event is open to the public, tickets can be reserved here. More information is posted on the Night Market site, which is updated frequently. With over 40 expert-curated food, art, and wellness vendors confirmed, here is a full list of vendors, some of whom are featured below.
