Charm City Night Market - Pop-Ups at 200 Park Avenue, in Celebration of Baltimore's Asian-American Community in Chinatown

Recommended Posts

Charm City Night Market was a success. I arrived a bit later in the evening, and the crowds of people in that part of town, blew my mind. Hopefully this will be the an annual celebration of diversity in the city of Baltimore, as well as reviving Chinatown.

Charm City Night Market: A Love Letter by Leandro Legera, published on Foodnomad.net 9/25/18

I’m still reeling from the feelings I had attending this event. Leandro sums it up perfectly in his tribute. My only regret is that I didn’t get more chances to interact with more of the attendees to get their feedback. I especially enjoyed the presense of various generations that attended the event. I often think of my Grandma, and how she would have loved to celebrate Charm City Night Market. 

Celebrate,

 The organizers of Charm City Market are at it again☺️. This Wednesday there is gonna be a POP-up hosted at Ekiben. Both  Steven Chu of Ekiben, as well as Paulo Dungca from Kaliwa, will be slinging traditional foods with a twist! You know your girl loves a tasty pop -up, so with deft scheduling, I’m gonna try to check it out! I suggest if you are within 45 miles, you may want to check it out too! 

Queen of PoP,

 Saturday in Graffiti Alley behind Motor House, Charm City Night Market  hosted Night Market Underground, the third iteration of the popular night market event series helmed by The Chinatown Collective. The event featured one sake cocktail and a selection of sake & shochu from Daikaya, DJ music, and food from Lei Musubi, Otabe by Masako, and Old Boy.

I attended this event following the pasta class in DC, and let me tell you the Chinatown Collective are onto something.  I suggest joining their mailing list in order to keep up to date on upcoming events. This was the second event I attended, and i can not tell you how joyous it is to see a sea of faces that resemble your own, and there were several people that I talked to that shared my sentiment. People had asked me if there were communities or more events or spaces like this in Baltimore. I did not have an answer, but hope that this keeps gaining momentum. Northern Va is fortunate to have Eden Center, where shops and business provide several resources to the Asian community in providing grocery stores, as well as ready made food shops, and businesses that support and provide Asians ingredients as well as services that are not provided at non- Asian establishments. 

People of all ages, and races were celebrating good food , great conversation, and music.  I have been told that the next Charmcity Nightmarket that will take place in September will be bigger, and will extend over more city blocks. I can not wait. The revival of Chinatown in Baltimore just might happen. Where there is hope, and passion of the community that will build it, it may very well be a success.

Joy,

For those of you who may have missed this last year, I highly recommend attending this year. It was an extraordinary event, and brought out so many of all ages to celebrate culture. As I learn of more details of both the talent who may be performing, along with all the food stalls that will be serving, I will update as the date grows closer.
