Street Food Market

Saturday, October 14, 2017, 5 PM - 12 AM

Stroll through an open-air food market to discover new and familiar culinary treasures. Created locally and inspired by Asian and Middle Eastern recipes, each delicious bite will transport visitors to destinations around the world. Come hungry to experience a wide variety of fragrant spices and handcrafted eats, and peek inside the kitchen during exclusive food talks and demonstrations.

Representing diverse traditions, DC-based chefs will each bring something special to share and taste. These food vendors will offer small, curated menus that tell a story about how their families have cooked and eaten for generations. In this lively atmosphere, IlluminAsia food stalls pay homage to bustling street markets worldwide.
