Enjoy the Night Market at Home

Treat yourself and recreate the celebrated Ferry Street Night Market Home Edition in your home. Jon Elbaum, the Hall’s Executive Director, recommends it.

“We ordered Sunhee’s Ferry Street Night Market Home Edition menu on Thursday, and it felt like a real night out! It is wonderful how Jinah has collaborated with other restaurants to create this concept. She has been a leader in bringing our community together and Troy is fortunate to have her here. Let’s support all of our local restaurants during this difficult time!”

Packages include paper lanterns, featured k-pop music video link cards, and a variety of street food by Sunhee’s Farm and KitchenLime Leaf Thai BistroQuang’s Vietnamese BistroK-Plate Korean BBQ, and drinks from Yesfolk Tonics.
