  • The 626 Night Market filled the Fairgrounds with delicious smells once again.

  • Visitors flock to popular food stands.

  • There was something for everyone at the Night Market, from carnival games, to outlandish desserts, and fun accessories.

  • Vendors grilled, mixed, fried, flamed, and froze their specialty foods.

  • Ube pastries are a bright purple hue, and are popular among attendees.

  • A happy cow points to a Korean Barbeque stand, if the smell of the grills wasn’t enticing enough.

  • AVJ students indulged in a baby bottle filled with non-alcoholic Piña Colada, spicy Szechuan dumplings, and flavorful garlic noodles.

  • The cost of this feast? A whopping $44! If you plan on coming to this event, bring cash to get around some added card fees.

  • One of the staples of the event is the iconic baby bottles. They could be filled with lemonade, horchata, or fruit juice, and could be customized with lights and handles.

  • All kinds of charms for Crocs were available: K-pop stars, internet memes, cats, you name it, you could bedazzle your favorite pair of Crocs with them.

  • Unique storefronts reflected the buisness owner’s aesthetics and tastes.

  • Outside of the food area was the Art Walk, with independent sellers showing off their unique works.

  • Prints from artists were popular with guests. This artist makes parody art, criss-crossing popular cultures to make clever pieces.

  • Just like the upcoming Alameda County Fair, deceptively easy carnival games lined the venue.

  • Some truly bizarre foods were available for purchase, including this rainbow colored grilled cheese sandwich.

  • One of the most popular vendors is the Stüssy clothing outlet, as the brand has exploded in popularity thanks to social media. Expect to find unique pieces and deals at the Night Market outlet.

  • Picnic benches were filled with people, even at the later hours.

  • Big groups of friends came from all over the Bay Area to enjoy a fun night out at the 626 Night Market.

  • Plan on getting to the event on the earlier side for the full experience, as some vendors close up their stands early.

  • The majority of the stands produce hand made goods crafted with love.

  • If one’s pallete was not feeling adventurous, classic fair favorites like funnel cakes and churros were up for grabs too.
