Imagine your favorite Jersey City outdoor markets, except this one is indoors (at Harborside Atrium) and at night—and for adults only 😉

The DL #s on an “as each” basis:

Cover: $5
Yum Noms: $5
Adult Bevvies: $5
Parking if needed: $5

It is encouraged that you bring ca$h in increments < 20. ATMs will be available on site, because we’re prepared for you to be excited.
