This is Steph (IG: @chinadollbaltimore). She’s a friend and a talented baker—she even made her own birthday cake featured here—and she’s also the founder/organizer of the upcoming Charm City Night Market (IG: @charmcitynightmarket) being held on Sept 22 (Sat) from 4PM to 11PM.
After learning about how Baltimore once had a vibrant Chinatown community along Park Avenue in Mount Vernon, Steph was inspired to do something that would not only share the stories of the immigrants who made this city their home but also showcase the amazing things Asian-American community is doing today. This desire led to the formation of a group who would eventually organize and develop the Charm City Night Market.
These passionate individuals have worked extremely hard to make this dream a reality and in one week, the inaugural Charm City Night Market will open its doors to the public! There will be many artists, vendors, and performances. And food from a lot of awesome places, including Baltimore’s beloved Ekiben and newly minted Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant Kaliwa !
Anyways, if you are in the area, please support Steph and all of the other awesome people and vendors and restaurants involved with this event. You can find (free) tickets here at eventbrite.com but you can also pay for a VIP pass that gains you access to additional food and drinks. You can find more information about Charm City Night Market on their website as well.
