And all is right with the world again, as my favorite food event…on earth…is back on its native soil.

The 626 Sign at the front entrance.

Well, by native soil, I mean…well, I mean I know it’s not in Taiwan, I mean that it’s in Arcadia for the first–oh come on, you know what I mean.

This weekend at the Santa Anita Race Track, just Friday and Saturday is the San Gabriel Valley’s answer to all those wonderful Night Markets you see on the Travel Channel, the first of this year’s three 626 Night Markets.  (Though if the 626 Night Market folks want to add on a fourth weekend, I certainly won’t stop them.  In fact, if they need any more money, count me in for a T-Shirt!)

Hours for both Days/Nights run from 4pm to 1am.

There is a $3 Dollar cover charge, and parking is free.
