The dilemma is finally over! We’ll no longer have to choose between a delicious dinner out and a good party. Poznań is going to have its own unique place where the worlds of food, music, and culture blend in harmony, giving us the opportunity to spend our leisure time in a casual atmosphere. Located in the revitalized, former railway halls, Nocny Targ Towarzyski [The Night Market] will open its door on April 28.
Nocny Targ Towarzyski – inspired by Asian and the best European night markets such as Street Feast Markets or Berlin Markthalle – is a weekly festival of food, drinks, and fun, featuring series of talented artists’ concerts, an outdoor cinema, Sunday breakfasts, and culinary workshops. The Night Market is a space where a shopping spree meets an exploration of new meals, tastes, and music. Most importantly – you can do it all while spending quality time with your friends!
The Market initiators, Mateusz Luczyński and Bartek Grochowski, are working in cooperation with the MYTUJEMY duo known for their culinary discoveries in the city of Poznań.
Each week, MYTUJEMY will be in charge of selecting exhibitors for the Night Market to make sure that the Poznań’s best restaurants and food concepts join the event to present their new, innovative dishes inspired by the cuisines of the world. The enormous space of the renovated railway halls will give the people of Poznań the chance to discover a new way of spending their free time – not only during the day, but also at night – eating delicious food, watching good-quality movies, and listening to exquisite music.
We wanted to create a place that would strengthen the cultural and social capital of Poznań outside of the city’s historical center. We want to develop the culture fostered by the art of eating, to build a real-life platform for an active participation in the life of the city, and to make the city’s cultural potential more attractive. We hope that the idea behind the Market will be positively received and that it will stimulate the engagement of Poznań residents of all ages! – say the organizers.
Worth mentioning is the fact that all the events organized as part of Nocny Targ Towarzyski will be free of charge, aimed at integrating the district and all social groups, including families and the elderly. The creation of this place is a reaction to global trends where traditional divisions (into the public and the commercial) no longer exist, giving rise to the idea of the place as a space of experience. The Night Market – that will surely become the next calling card of Poznań – puts this trend into life by adapting it to the local needs of the city and the Łazarz district.
The grand opening on April 28-29 will feature Flirtini, Kroki, and Youth Novels, and guests’ appetites will be will be worked up by the exhibitors selected and invited by MYTUJEMY. From 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. the invited food spots will be serving their flagship dishes with good music drifting in the background! There’ll be plenty of food to choose from, including bao, ramen, pho, and other Asian delicacies, as well as variations on meat, ice cream in a completely new form, and food from brand new food concepts.
