Chinatown Yè Shì Night Market Returns!

Philadelphia, PA – The Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation (PCDC) is proud to announce the return of one of the hottest events in Center City, the night
market Yè Shì. On Thursday, October 12th, from 7:00PM to 11:00PM, the streets of Philadelphia’s Chinatown will be alive with food, vibrant music, and entertainment. Based on the popular street food markets in East and Southeast Asia, PCDC will be bringing different flavors and activities to the Chinatown area for the seventh year in a row.

For the last several years, Chinatown has seen over 20,000 attendees flock to the area for the over 50 unique vendors who sell food, drinks, and arts and crafts, and live musical performances from the local community. Attendees can expect to see a unique blend of both Asian and Western foods.

Vendor applications will be available starting June 28th and close on August 29th. Brick-and-mortar businesses within the area and food trucks are encouraged to apply.
Interested vendors should contact Lamei Zhang at

We are hosting an interest meeting for vendors on Tuesday, July 18th, at 2:00 PM at PCDC, 301-05 N 9th Street to review concepts, fees, and logistics.
