HOW IT STARTED

Tiffany of CHOOCHOO-ca-CHEW was born and raised in Taiwan. She grew up visiting markets & night markets and is passionate about all things local. She enjoys introducing people to Asian culture, cuisines, and local businesses. The Night Market has been a dream & much discussed concept between Tiffany Alexandria, Amy Garretson & Naura Anderson, we’re turning this vision into reality in summer 2021.

LOGO DESIGN

The Night Market logo is designed by the ridiculously talented local designer/ artist/ muralist- Maggie Panetta!

The Chinese character in the logo is “夜” (YÈ), it means night and sounds like YAY!

If you’re looking for design work done, or a mural on your wall, check out Maggie’s portfolio HERE.
