Central West End
Part carnival, part bazaar, part party, the market is back for its 3rd year in St. Louis, and 1st year at Saigon Cafe in the CWE. This FREE vibrant cultural festival offers attendees the chance to come together and build relationships through food, drinks, art, and fun!
Most of the market will be outside on Euclid Ave., extending the block north of Laclede. But inside Saigon Cafe, visitors can get a lesson in preparing matcha tea and purchase tea and sweets, commission a calligraphy piece, and spend some time hearing their fortune from a traditional street diviner known as an uranaishi (fortune-teller).
Outside, vendors selling everything from bags to jewelry to Japanese anime toys will line the street, and local restaurants will offer traditional food and drinks. JAS will be there selling Urban Chestnut's Konomi, Kirin Ichiban, several varieties of Tozai sake, and the ever-popular Kyuuri Mist sake cocktail. Live cultural performances including traditional lion dancing and taiko drumming will bring the party to the streets!
