Woodlawn Market is an urban street market in the heart of Historic Woodlawn. They are halfway through their 6th season, and on Saturday, August 10, they are hosting their first-ever night market from 5-9pm! Find all the details here.

What is Woodlawn Street Market?

Woodlawn Street Market is kind of like a cross between a block party and a farmers’ market. Patrons can expect merchants selling produce, goods, and prepared food, along with a few home-grown restaurants and retailers.

The market is one of the many awesome events in the historic and vibrant Woodlawn.

So, Why is Night Market Special?

The Woodlawn Night Market is a concept that the founders have been dreaming of since the event’s inception.

Thanks to Woodlawn’s business community growth and improved street lighting, the stars have finally aligned for the night market to become reality!

“The evening hours will help combat the late summer heat that gets pretty painful this time of year, and we’ll continue showcasing how vibrant our community is growing to be, even at night.”

Rebekah Fox, market founder
