“The beauty of events like Night Market Cleveland are twofold. Not only do you get to experience a neighborhood that might not be your regular hangout spot, but you also get to sample food and visit boutique vendors that you might never have known existed. The exposure to the different cultures and culinary delights that our city has to offer is invaluable. Plus, events like this remind us that we are part of a larger community; a community that loves the city of Cleveland and wants to do all it can to promote what the city has to offer, with an ethnic twist.”
