No trip to Asia is complete without a stroll through a night market, a collection of vendors specializing in a variety of dishes who sell food late into the night.

The Greater Austin Asian Chamber of Commerce is bringing an Asian Eats Night Market to Austin on March 22 and 23 at St. Vincent de Paul’s, 901 W. Braker Lane.

The free, family friendly event is still accepting applications from potential vendors. Attendees won't pay to get in, but they'll pay for food at each of the booths.

According to a release: "The night market will be organized as a walk through Asia, starting in the middle east, through south and southeast Asia and ending in east Asia" and there will be vendors selling goods and performances from local groups.

"Our goal is to offer a platform for dishes not currently available in Central Texas, so applications will be considered based on proposed menu," organizers said. "If you need access to a commercial kitchen, we can help you. The Temporary Food Permit will be paid for by the Greater Austin Asian Chamber of Commerce."
