I have been to a number of evening markets around the world, from Asia to Europe (the one in Bangkok is amazing). The public market concept is a cultural gathering that dates back to the beginning of time. With fresh food, artisans and live music, what’s not to enjoy. I haven’t run into many night markets in the U.S., but have to say the one in Oceanside, California is quite good.
- When: Every Thursday evening between 5 and 9pm.
- Where: Downtown Oceanside, California, in north county San Diego.
- What: The Sunset Market offers a plethora of arts, crafts, ethnic foods to whet your taste buds, along with some fantastic street musicians and performers.
