After a one-year pause, the trailblazing Harlem Night Market is returning to East Harlem bigger and better than before.

The indoor festival highlighting local businesses, which launched in 2019, will stretch across three lots on Park Avenue this year.

This includes the block-long La Placita between 115th and 116th Streets where the market first launched as well as the historic La Marqueta between 114th and 115th Streets and the Urban Garden Center between 116th and 117th Streets.

Expect food, drinks, and artisanal goods from up to 75 vendors, including uptown favorites like Harlem Biscuit Co., Sugar Hill Creamery and Harlem Seafood Soul.

There will be activities for kids, too, including Three Kings Day crown-making with El Museo del Barrio, plus photographs with Santa (the family activities will take place at the Urban Garden Center on Saturday 4pm-6pm and Sunday 3pm-6pm).

Music will segue from live performances from groups such as Los Pleneros de la 21 and Sing Harlem Gospel Choir to tracks by DJs Stormin' Norman and Ted Smooth.

A note for anyone who might be confused: This is a separate event from last summer's Uptown Night Market in West Harlem.

The dates are this Friday, December 17 5pm-9pm; Saturday, December 18 4pm-9pm and Sunday, December 19 3pm-8pm.
