Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Get ready for a grub fest! Koreatown, our little slice of heaven for delicious Korean food, will be home to the first ever KTOWN Night Market come this spring.

KTOWN Night Market will take place from April 18 to April 19 at Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools. This outdoor (and free!) event will have over 100 booths selling food and merchandise. The food will "represent the full breadth of multi-ethnic street cuisine from Los Angeles and Orange County," according to a statement from KTOWN Night Market.

What's even more exciting is that the folks from Seoul Sausage Company on the Westside (who won Season 3 of Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race) will be curating the food trucks at the event. (We trust their taste since their food is top notch.) There will also be live entertainment performers and carnival games.

KTOWN Night Market is still accepting applications from vendors who want to whip up their dishes at the food festival. They haven't announced a list of which vendors will be there yet, but they've been teasing us with photos like these on their Facebook and Instagram pages:
