Though organizers of last year's inaugural San Diego Night Market thought that they might revisit the event sometime earlier this year, the second annual night market has been schedule for Saturday, October 4 starting at 4 p.m. and going until midnight.

The first San Diego Night Market, put on by the Convoy District, squeezed over 15,000 people into the Zion Market parking lot; this year, the market will be on a larger lot at 7990 Engineer Road.

Over 50 vendors are scheduled to be at the open-air urban market, with more than 25 food booths ranging from AweSum Dim Sum to Hotato Potato, brick toast from Up 2 You dessert cafe and Squid Roe, which sells whole fried squid on a stick.

There will also be a beer garden with local craft beer and spirits, plus live entertainment and a pop-up cinema. Admission is $2, with children 12 and under free; the district is also offering free parking and shuttle service.

UPDATE: organizers tell us that there will not be a beer garden this year, but surrounding beer bars, including Common Theory and O'Briens Pub, will be offering "Night Market" beer specials.
