First and foremost, what is a night market you say? Inspired by vibrant outdoor markets popular throughout Europe and Asia, night markets are social outdoor events where food, retail, and educational vendors offer a variety of fresh, local street foods, arts & crafts, and other culturally relevant and family-friendly fare. These roving festivals highlight unique finds, foods, wares, and entertainment that could be found nowhere else during the day.
Now, you can experience this in Alpharetta at the Atlanta International Night Market!
