Held under sparkling lights, the area's food and drink will shine with live music, adult beverage, local restaurants, and a culinary competition featuring the next generation of chefs. Market guides will be on hand to tell you about the history of the market as you walk through! Tastes from the ten participants are included in the ticket price, so come hungry!
