Gayborhood Spotlight: Meet Caitlin and Daniela

    •  Gayborhood Spotlight: Meet Caitlin and Daniela

One of Night Market Philadelphia's main goals is to support the business owners who make our city's mobile food scene so delicious. For a second year in a row, we will be highlighting local food entrepreneurs in this season's lineup!

Caitlin Agnew and Daniela Lammey met and became fast friends through their corporate day jobs. The two realized that they had much in common, including the desire to pursue other passions outside work. Drawn to the foodie community, Cait and Daniela frequently contemplated different business ideas, including opening their own food truck. One night over drinks, they decided to go for it, and Have A Ball was born.

One year in, Cait and Daniela still describe the experience as "surreal" and that although they've come a long way, there's still a lot more they want to accomplish and contribute to the community. "The Gayborhood is a city within a city," said the duo. "It's a feel-good, accepting place [where] you can just be. Pride Month is a time to unite ... to remember everyone who fought so hard for our rights and to encourage anybody who isn't yet or unable to be comfortable with who they are (or aren't) to feel safe."

Their must-try dishes? Even with a constantly changing menu, loyal fans can agree on the crowd favorites: the buffalo chicken ball and Big Mac ball-wich. 

Find Have A Ball next Thursday at Night Market Gayborhood!

Night Market Philadelphia and Community Engagement

kf logo square

Since its launch in 2010, Night Market has provided a platform for local food entrepreneurs to start or grow their businesses, while bringing people together in neighborhoods around local food and culture. To build on these activities, The Food Trust has begun to provide community forums at Night Market to create vibrant spaces for Philadelphians--long-time residents and newcomers alike--to share their perspectives on issues of local importance.

 

The Food Trust’s efforts to spur civic engagement and lift up local food entrepreneurs, especially those owned and operated by immigrants, are supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. In Philadelphia, Knight Foundation works to promote inclusion; foster vibrant, connected communities; and invite people to participate in civic life. With Knight Foundation support, The Food Trust is working to infuse Night Market events with fun and innovative ways to deepen connections across the city’s increasingly diverse neighborhoods and create economic opportunities for new residents.
