Get ready for the return of the epic Richmond Night Market


Midway games, vendor booths, live entertainment, and an insane amount of food will once again draw crowds when the Richmond Night Market starts up its 2019 run.

Opening day is slated for May 10, and the vibrant Richmond Night Market will be running weekend and holiday nights through Oct. 14.

The Richmond Night Market will have the following hours for 2019:

  • Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays (May 10-Sept. 2): 7 p.m. to midnight
  • Sundays (After Sep 2) and Stat holidays: 7 to 11 p.m.

The market consistently offers an impressive quantity of options for shopping and eating–they have over 100 food stalls and 200 vendors. Oh, and you may even be able to get away with a little bartering with those vendors (so says the Richmond tourism folks).

But the food is always one of the most exciting parts of the Night Market, so you can expect to find everything from those iconic “tornado potatoes” to grilled meats, bubble waffles, “large” fried chicken, wild beverage concoctions, epic treats, and who knows what else is in store for this year.

Because it’s a night market, things really get going there once the sun sets, so expect big crowds as always, line ups, and lots of activity.
