The Night Market Stardew Valley Guide

Every 15th of Winter, Pelican Town opens its local Beach to vendors from different towns to set up their shops in the Night Market. Citizens flock over the docks to see all the festival’s shops and attractions; there’s a good reason why everyone looks forward to this event every year.

What are the items worth buying at this festival? What other things could you do besides hauling goods from the shops? Today, we will tour the Night Market and see what the festival offers.

The Night Market is a three-day event between the 15th and 17th of Winter in Stardew Valley. It is a mesmerizing, eye-catching festival that allows you to browse a selection of items you can only purchase here. For first-time players, it’s an event you wouldn’t want to miss since the items sold in some shops rotate each night.

Night Market Shops in Stardew Valley

The shops are easily the highlight of the festival. Many shops in the Night Market sell their goods from boats, and most are available from 5:00 PM to 2:00 AM.

Traveling Cart

NM TravelingCart2

The Traveling Merchant is at the dock with her signature purple cart on a raft and her pet pig floating in an inflatable ring. Players who have already repaired their Greenhouse during this time would appreciate the assortment of items the Traveling Merchant has for this event. If you’re wondering where to get blueberry seeds during winter, the Merchant sells a variety of seasonal crop seeds that rotate every night. The Merchant also sells her usual stock, including the recipe for the Wedding Ring.

Famous Artist Lupini

NM Lupini

The Night Market features a famous painter named Lupini. You’ll see the artist standing on the dock and displaying a painting beside him. Lupini exhibits his artworks that cost 1,200 Gold each, but he changes them each night. He also sells a different set of paintings every year until Year 3. The good thing is when you reach Year 4, you’ll be able to purchase the paintings you missed in your first year. Below is the list of all the Lupini paintings you can collect and hang on your wall:

Other Attractions

Shops aren’t the only attractions you’ll see at this festival. You can also watch a boat show, get freebies, and ride a submarine that lets you catch some of the rarest fish ever. These attractions open at 5:00 PM and close at 2:00 AM, except for the Fishing Submarine and the Mermaid Boat.

Desert Trader

NM DesertTrader

The Desert Trader can be located just a few steps from the Decoration Boat. You’ll find her sitting on a rug beside a coffee maker machine. The trader will not sell you coffee. Instead, she will give you one cup of coffee – for free!

Fishing Submarine

NM Sub

To the left of the Desert Trader is the Fishing Submarine. Inside the Submarine, a Captain’ll ask you if you want to take a fishing tour while inside his ship. The Captain isn’t as generous as the Desert Trader, though, as one fishing tour costs 1,000 Gold.

The Submarine will plunge deep into the ocean while you wait for one and a half hours of in-game minutes. After that, a hatch will open up in the ship’s center. Down there, you can fish some deep-sea creatures exclusive to this event. The table below lists all the fish and items you can catch while underwater:

Mermaid Boat

NM MermaidBoat

The Mermaid Boat is one of the main attractions of the festival. It features a mermaid singing and putting on a spectacular show for whoever enters the boat.

When you enter the boat, the mermaid will start singing. If you wait for the show to finish, you can click the clam shells on the stage and notice that each clamshell will produce a sound.

NM MermaidShow

At first, you might think that the Mermaid Show only aims to entertain the player. But if you could dig out Secret Note # 15, you’ll discover a puzzle you can solve here.

To solve this puzzle, interact with the clam shells in this order: 1-5-4-2-3 (from left to right). If you successfully play the correct musical notes, you’ll obtain a Pearl.

Shrouded Figure

NM Shrouded

The Night Market is packed with scenic spots and features that will eat up your time in Stardew Valley. Should you forget to bring a Warp Totem to the Festival, you can pass out when the clock strikes at 2 AM.

Fortunately, there’s a man wrapped in a dark blue garment called the Shrouded Figure at this festival. He is found in the center of the docks with a levitating Warp Totem, which signifies he can transport you home. Talk to the Shrouded Figure; he can magically warp you back to your farm for 250 gold.
