Starting at 4pm tomorrow, June 30th, the Bronx Night Market will officially be open for business in Fordham Plaza. The first of its kind in the borough, the free open-air market will have 40 vendors, 99 percent of which will be from the area, who will serve up “dishes and libations from all corners of the world with an unmatchable layer of authenticity and passion.” Not only will the items be priced reasonably, from about $3 to $7, but there will also be handcrafted items for sale and live entertainment from local performers.
