Rochester MN Night Market

Night markets are a way of life across much of Asia.  These night markets are open-air markets held at night and are dedicated to leisurely strolling, eating, enjoying entertainment, art, and more. The first Night Market in #rochmn will be held this upcoming Saturday from 5:00 PM – 9: 00 PM with subsequent dates on August 21st, and September 18th. The event will be located on the Mayo Civic Center Riverfront Plaza and the Rochester Art Center.

Tiffany Alexandria of Choochoo-ca-chew was born and raised in Taiwan.  She grew up attending night markets and truly misses this aspect of her home. Tiffany is also passionate about *all* things local.  She has long dreamed of bringing a night market to Rochester MN.  The Night Market is made possible by a Start-Up Event Grant and other vested downtown sponsors.

Live music and entertainment are part of the Night Market and this Saturday’s market will be featuring Sothea Lam (from reggae group Push & Turn) and a Cambodian dance group called KSKMM.

Night markets are a great way to socialize and build community and can be a great place for small businesses to get their start.  The Night Market in Rochester will feature 20+ businesses and has placed a strong emphasis on Asian and BIPOC vendors.  Expect a night outdoors filled with food, music, drinks, games, art, handmade products, fresh produce, and more!
