The Pearl is launching a new summer night market event Wednesday that will offer live music, food and vendors.

The night markets will occur every first and third Wednesday through July . More than 40 vendors will offer a variety of products at the market, including handwoven baskets, hand-pressed greeting cards, in addition to the large food scene at the Pearl. 

Some vendors will be new, while others regularly attend other market events at the Pearl. 

Based on previous attendance for weekend farmer’s markets, “a few thousand” people are expected to gather for the summer night markets, said Samantha Pappas, assistant market manager for Pearl Commercial. 

“Guests attending the night market in return support the restaurants (and) businesses we have at Pearl, including shopping and dining with our tenants,” she said. 

Free live music performances will be held outside the Pearl park area. near the vendors. Local artists will be featured, each selected by the Stable Hall group. The Brothers WayFare kick off the first performance of the summer Wednesday from 5-9 p.m. 

Others musicians scheduled to perform include Mariachi Las Coronelas, Noah Harris, Spud Sims, Kathryn Legendre and Juliette McConkey. 

Pappas said it’s important for the Pearl to hold events to promote local and family businesses to support San Antonio. “Especially after us having to be apart for the last two years, it’s exciting to once again be able to gather and enjoy time together.”
