ABOUT THE 2014 LITTLE MEKONG NIGHT MARKET

A visit to the night market is an unforgettable experience of new sights, sounds and flavors. If you have been to night markets in Asia, you know these open air street markets provide an amazing carnival experience for all your senses. A trip to the night market is an adventure.

We will have food vendors, farmers, handicrafts, music, exhibits, cultural performances, and kids activities. Our mission is to support local small businesses and provide a venue for family fun and excitement.

This is our first year, so our night market won’t come close to Asian night markets, but your participation can help make it a success. You will also be supporting local small businesses like RedGreen Rivers and Fierce Ferments.
