Sixth District Councilman Dee Andrews is excited to announce the opening of Midtown Night Market in Cambodia Town on Sunday, July 10th, from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm, at MacArthur Park, located at 1321 E Anaheim St, Long Beach, CA 90813.
After a several months of planning, the Midtown Night Market will be opening next month. The farmers market is one of Councilman Dee Andrews’s visions to create a more vibrant midtown, as well as, to provide residents a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. “I am so excited to see this farmer’s market opening. It’s is going to be a warm, friendly, and safe environment dedicated to supporting the success of our small local farms, farmers, and local businesses, while making affordable and healthy food accessible to the community and its members”, said Councilman Andrews. “In addition, it will tie the people of the community together through the creation of a friendly environment where everyone can meet, connect, and grow”.
Councilman Andrews allocated $10,000 of one-time funding to help jump start the much needed project. The local nonprofit, Cambodia Town, Inc will be managing the market. Along with fresh food, the market will also include sports and fitness classes (e.g. exercise classes including Pilates and Zumba) health and wellness workshops (e.g. dance, yoga, and stress-management), growing and learning opportunities (e.g. financial literacy, etc…). Live entertainment from local artists, a kid’s space (music, art, etc…) and so much more!
