The Stop's Night Market Returns June 18 & 19

I'm so thrilled that one of my favourite food events from last year, The Stop’s Night Market, is back again this summer. On June 18 and 19, over 60 Toronto chefs will be gathered in the back alley and parking lot of Honest Ed's once again, dishing up their own unique take on street food and all for a great cause. Proceeds from the night will go towards The Stop’s anti-hunger programs.

The Stop Night Market 2012

The Stop’s Night Market was one of the best, put-together events of last year, in terms of the venue, atmosphere, and variety of food. Each vendor’s booth was custom-designed by various designers and design firms, working with the chefs to create a particular look and feel. There were certainly some very creative, stand-out booths, from Brockton General’s Pegasus booth, to The Stop’s adorable food cart, to Woodlot’s very aerodynamic-looking booth. With mini paper lanterns and colourful banners hung throughout the lot, the place was turned into a magical little street fiesta.

This year, the organizers have expanded the Night Market to run two nights, and with more chefs! The vendors will be spread over the two nights. It’s great to see some returning favourites, like Woodlot, County General, The Stockyards, Babi & Co., and more. But I’m just as excited to check out what some of the new vendors will bring to the event, including Richmond Station, Momofuku Shoto, Ursa, Farmhouse Tavern, Chantecler, Acadia, and many more! Lots of local craft breweries and wineries will be on hand to keep everyone well hydrated.

Best of all, The Stop’s Night Market is a much more affordable fundraising food affair, with tickets only costing $50 for all-you-can-eat food and drinks. Yes, you read it right—all-you-can-eat-AND-drink. Last year’s ticket sales raised over $57,000 for The Stop, so with two nights of festivities and more than twice the amount of tickets for sale, we’re bound to do even more good for The Stop and their essential programs for the community.

Tickets will be going on sale the morning of Wednesday, May 22, so get yours quickly because these will sell out fast! Tickets will be available for sale on the Night Market’s website: www.nightmarket.thestop.org. Be sure to follow The Stop on Twitter @TheStopCFC, and use the Night Market hashtag #TheStopNM.

The site itself has a lot of animations, so it could be a web browser compatibility or a missing plug-in. The site's working for me.
