First Friday Night Market is San Diego County’s all-vegan monthly market that is free and open to the public. The market originally debuted in July 2018 in North Park, and moved to Grossmont Shopping Center in La Mesa in September 2019 with an expanded footprint and longer hours! After a very successful March 2020 event, FFNM went on hiatus due to COVID-19 until August 2022. Since its relaunch, the market has rebounded and continues to grow. 

This market offers food, drinks and entertainment in the evening, every first Friday of the month. Historical attendance was between 1,500-2,500 guests per month and we had 20+ vendors each month (12 food vendors, a few drinks, desserts and goods). Current market hours will be 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.
