626 Night Market celebrates its 5th summer season this year with four Asian-themed weekends of food, merchandise, entertainment and more! We learned about it by accident while getting lost on an Internet rabbit trail one Saturday night sometime around 8pm, minding our own business and watching Chris Hemsworth movie in our PJs. It took us about 2 minutes to ditch Chris and change once we realized the market would be open until 1am, so we hopped in the car (despite already having eaten dinner) and were off! Check out our pics (mostly of food) below!
