Fresno’s 559 Night Market, which offers guests food, music, shopping and a variety of entertainment attractions, will celebrate its one-year anniversary this Friday from 6 to 10 p.m.
The 559 Night Market is hosted on the last Friday of each month, and attracts a wide variety of food trucks and pop-up vendors, as well as music, entertainment and a beer garden sponsored by the Chinatown Fresno Foundation. Admission to this, and all 559 Night Market events, is free.
“Fresno Street Eats continues to strive to bring together community around food in places that are often overlooked in Fresno,” said President of Fresno Street Eats Mike Osugueda. “It’s great to see people filling the streets of Chinatown, supporting small businesses, and playing their part in community rebirth.”
Fresno’s Chinatown Foundation hopes these monthly events will continue to increase foot traffic locally, adding that for some, this event introduces the Chinatown community to Valley residents for the very first time.
The event will feature Central Fish, Esperanza’s Cocina, La Elegante, and the Panderia Vista Hermosa, as well as Coca’s, Kogetsu-do, Ho Ho Kafe, Chef Paul’s and more.
The 559 Night Market is located on Kern Street, between G and E streets on the last Friday of each month between April and October, and is sponsored by Central Fish, Chinatown Fresno Foundation, Fresno Street Eats, Moya Farms, The Good Karma, Tinman559, Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Co. and Vendor Village.
