The H&8th Night Market returns from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday on Hudson Avenue between NW 7 and NW 8 streets.

The season opener in March drew an estimated 2,500 folks, which has inspired some changes.

“We're all incredibly inspired by the way the community has embraced this celebration of food and music,” said Laura Massenat, H&8th co-founder and co-owner of Elemental Coffee. “We're all having a blast and constantly looking for creative ways to improve the experience. Right now we're focusing on how people move around in the space.”

A free bike valet service will make its debut Friday; check-in is behind Elemental Coffee. Food trucks will be pushed back about 4 feet to the curb and realigned in a wing formation around the live music stage, providing more walking space and encouraging more use of the lawn area for games.

Food and beverage output will also be increased to accommodate large crowds. Food vendors will coordinate menus to reduce overlap and share best practices to increase speed and efficiency. There will be more lighted outdoor furniture.

This month's food truck participants include: Hawk's Hot Dogs; Heo's Kitchen; MotoChef; Off The Hook Seafood; Pizza 23; Roxy's Ice Cream Social; Taste of Soul Egg Roll; Urban Agrarian; and Wild Al's. Organic Squeeze, a soon-to-open organic, cold-pressed juice bar will offer free samples. Ludivine will serve its full menu with open seating. Elemental Coffee will serve coffee and tea, fresh salads, hummus and pita, and coffee-inspired cocktails. COOP Ale Works will offer craft beer.
