City of Murrieta partners with Murrieta Market Nights for expanded downtown street market

The City of Murrieta is partnering with local nonprofit Murrieta Market Nights to host markets on the first and third Thursday of each month from 5 to 9 p.m. in Downtown Murrieta.

Each event brings hundreds of shoppers to downtown, with street closures for vendors and entertainment occurring along Washington Avenue and Juniper Street.

Established in October 2020, Murrieta Market Nights quickly gained notoriety as a community attraction. A mixture of artisan vendors, food vendors, artists, activities, and entertainment provide an enjoyable family-friendly atmosphere.

Organized by the Murrieta Market Nights nonprofit in partnership with the Downtown Murrieta Merchants and Property Owners Association and MAC Arts Council, the City of Murrieta has supported the events with road closure assistance since the summer of 2021, and are now expanding their partnership with Murrieta Market Nights in an official capacity.

In the fall of 2022, the Murrieta City Council approved an agreement between the city and Murrieta Market Nights organization to host the events. Since the agreement was finalized, the city purchased multiple barriers to safely close roadways to vehicle traffic so vendors can utilize downtown street space and visitors can enjoy the artisans, entertainment, and activities.

“I have been a passionate advocate for this partnership between the city and Murrieta Market Nights,” Murrieta Mayor Lisa DeForest said. “These events create a space for residents and visitors to come and engage with vendors and local businesses. Market Nights create a true heart for our city and are a perfect way to support our special and connected community here in Murrieta.”
