This year’s Night Market is South San Diego’s kickoff event for the holiday shopping season and also coincides with Small Business Saturday. Many PHNM retailers are small business owners with roots in the neighborhood. Several vendors that will line the field for the Night Market will be selling outside of their homes for the first time.
Passion Planner is a local vendor scheduled to attend the Night Market. Passion Planner Founder, CEO and Designer Angelia Trinidad is a San Diego native and local success story. Her company successfully launched five kickstarter campaigns with $1,666,164 raised total. Passion Planner now uses its success to give back through their Get One, Give One program and other philanthropic initiatives. Additional local vendors include clothing brands Human Catalyst, Mana Pono, and Tribal Streetwear.
The Night Market will be accompanied with endless music, sounds and sights from local talent and artists. PHNM will also feature the neighborhood’s accomplished culinary talent. Philip Esteban is a well-known chef in the culinary world for his drive and innovation. Esteban honed his craft across both coasts as a line cook at David Chang’s acclaimed Momofuku in New York, as executive chef at The Cork and Craft in San Diego to several other ventures. He now serves as innovation chef at Consortium Holdings.
With the success of last year's event and the number of attendees, parking was an issue. This year shuttles will be available! See the schedule below:
