A community street market every Sunday on the Navigation Esplanade.
The East End Street Market’s mission is to create vibrant community gatherings in the East End, and contribute to the success of local food growers, prepared food vendors, artisans and live performers. The market is in its second year of operation on the Navigation Esplanade, and was recently named the second best street market in all of Houston based on size, market offerings, and strength of vendor participation. In addition to a weekly market every Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm, the Esplanade also hosts a monthly themed night market, with live music and entertainment, vendors, and delicious food. New vendors interested in participating in the market are welcome! Contact market manager, Roy Rodriguez, firstname.lastname@example.org.
