Since November 2014, SAUCED Night Market has roamed the streets of Chicago, giving up-and-coming chefs, artists and artisans the opportunity to peddle their wares to curious passersby amid a DJ-crafted soundtrack. This coming Friday, Aug. 11, the market will venture outside the Windy City for the first time and pop up at The Cooperage.

“Over the years, SAUCED has had the pleasure of hosting many Wisconsin businesses at our Chicago events, and our team is so excited to bring a night market to them,” SAUCED founder Sarah Freeman said. “Milwaukee is home to a vibrant small businesses community that we can’t wait to support and celebrate.”

Between 5 and 10 p.m., market-goers will be able to grab a drink at the bar and peruse 30 vendors hailing from both of the neighboring cities, including:

That’s just a few of the vendors that will be in attendance, along with food provided by Paper Plane Pizza and BB Cakes, tunes from DJ DRiPSweat and a Polaroid photo booth courtesy of Neon Palms Studio. The all-ages affair is free to attend, but organizers ask that you RSVP via the event webpage.
