Jersey City Night Market
The Jersey City Night Market will be arranging an entire day filled with local food vendors, drinks, and family-friendly activities.
A few of the vendors listed are BelleJohns’ Soul Food LLC, Tasty Tropical Crepes Smoothies, Tropical Island, Smackin Lobster, TWELVE, Ma & Pa’s Tex Mex BBQ, and more.
The very popular indoor Midnight Market was founded by Jersey City natives Perla Nieves and Alysis Vasquez. Launched in 2016, the 21-and-over event features a host of different food trucks (many of them women) for late-night fun. Pre-COVID, it took place bi-monthly, featuring about 20 rotating food vendors for $5 or $7 a pop for each vendor’s food-tasting option. The next event is on July 22nd and will feature the same awesome deals. It will run from 6PM to midnight at 902 Brewing Company, located at 101 Pacific Avenue in Jersey City. You can get tickets here.
On Monday, July 4th, after musical performances from Flo Rida, Shaquille O’Neal, and Funk Flex, fireworks will light up the Hudson River once again and illuminate the night skies.
Like previous years, the fireworks will be provided by Grucci. Grucci is a family-owned and operated fireworks company that has developed a well-known reputation. They have provided shows for U.S. Presidential Inaugurations, Olympic Games, World Fairs, and they have received the Guinness World Record for “largest fireworks display” ever recorded.
