Mother Nature provided a perfect backdrop for the second Durham Night Market at American Tobacco on Thursday, September 23, 2021. The market features local businesses, giving attendees a convenient opportunity to shop local and interact with vendors.
“The partnership with the Raleigh Night Market to move their Durham Night Market to American Tobacco was initially discussed in late 2019 to start in the Spring of 2020,” explained ATC Events & Property Experience Director Valerie Ward. “Then COVID-19 hit, and we had to pause the launch.”
Last month’s market drew a great crowd and the September event built on that success.
“Given that outdoor flow-through events have a fairly high degree of safety, we launched our first monthly market in August 2021,” said Ward. “In just two events, we’ve been able to double our attendance and add additional vendors, not to mention enjoy some cooler Fall temperatures. American Tobacco restaurants provide food and beverages for the sip and shop experience, and there are always multiple musical acts to enjoy.”
Markets fall on the 4th Thursday of every month where possible. Look for the Durham Night Market to return in 2022!
