Downtown Night Market

presented by Wright-Patt Credit Union, Inc.

Night Market is a once-a-month, outdoor open-air market, held at North Market Downtown every third Friday, June – October. Inspired by traditional outdoor markets, Night Markets provide an opportunity for customers to purchase directly from local entrepreneurs.

What you can find at the Night Market at North Market Downtown:

●      Independent makers offering hand-made and locally grown products for sale

●      Live Music

●      Sip and Stroll with drinks from The Barrel & Bottle



The following COVID-19 measures will be in place on the plaza to ensure proper social distancing, sanitation, and safety is observed by vendors and guests alike:

●      North Market’s mask requirement that applies to indoor merchants and guests will also apply to all outdoor vendors and guests.

●      Access to each vendor’s booth will be limited. Markings on ground will indicate this requirement and will show the distance required between people. Only one person/group traveling together may be in each box at a time.

●      Vendors will provide hand sanitizer for guest use.

●      North Market vendors are committed to helping prevent the spread of illness by washing hands frequently, covering coughs/sneezes, staying home when sick, and avoiding exposure to others who are sick. We ask that all guests follow the same protocols and do not visit North Market or the Night Market if feeling ill.

●      North Market vendors will continue to strictly follow all local public health guidelines, safety protocols, and best practices.

●      North Market’s outdoor seating returns this summer to help provide a safe and fun atmosphere.
