The North Lamar International District Merchant Association made their public debut in March 2019, with two weekends of a wildly successful Asian Night Market.
They’ve been organizing behind the scenes for a couple of years, supported by the city’s economic development department and the Greater Austin Asian Chamber of Commerce. The initial core membership group is centered around North Lamar/Braker, but they plan to extend to include our European, Middle Eastern, African, Latin American, and even Cajun businesses as well.
