The West Coast has one of the largest Asian populations in the United States, if not THE largest. L.A. may have Chinatown, but Orange County has Little Saigon. To bring a little more Asian feeling to our Western Shores, the Asian Garden Mall (a.k.a. the Saigon Mall) is hosting night markets.
Almost every Asian country has night markets. It’s a tourist feature, from Taiwan to Vietnam to China. Until September 24th, every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, night markets run from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m.
While the night markets fall short of their inspiration, taking up only the front parking lot, it’s still a fun outing. It’s also a great place for good eats: an array of food trucks line the edge of the lot at every event.
