Stardew Valley Night Market
Stardew Valley Night Market is one of the seasonal festivals that takes place in Winter, between 15th and 17th. When the Night Market occurs, you can walk to the Beach and meet numerous merchants with boats at the docks. You can buy some goods or you can ask them to take you for a boat ride. The market is open for visitors from 5 PM to 2 AM, however, the Mermaid Boat is closing after 12:30 AM and the Submarine Ride works until 11 PM.
The difference between the Night Market and other festivals is that homes and shops, including those located near the Beach, are not closed. You will also need to keep feeding your animals during the festival. What does change during the festival, is the map of the Beach. Therefore, any items placed or hidden there, such as chests or crab pots, temporarily disappear. During the event, you also won’t be able to forage usual items on the Beach. However, when the Night Market takes place, you can complete quests on gathering, fishing, or killing monsters.
When the Night Market occurs, villagers change their usual schedules to walk to the Beach. The market is also different from other festivals because if you talk to villagers who attended it, your friendship will be increased.
Here you can get a free cup of coffee. Moreover, you can repeat it once in 10 minutes. If you take advantage of this feature of the game, you’ll be able to get Stardew Valley easy money: you can collect 162 cups of coffee during the festival, which are worth as much as 24,300 gold.
Here you can teleport to your farm for 250 gold.
Famous Painter Lupini
This painter sells a new painting every day. Each painting costs 1,200 gold. There are 9 paintings in total so they go a full cycle in three years. A painting that depicts a red eagle represents the art style of Hopi, a Native American tribe.
This is a blue boat where you can buy a variety of decorations. Some decorations may change with the seasons of the year. You can buy as many decorations as you want and place them wherever you want. This is the only place where players can purchase the Candy Cane.
On the submarine, you can ask a Captain to take you on a deep-sea fishing trip. It costs 1,000 gold. The submarine takes 30 minutes to descend and to ascent. While underwater, you can use a trapdoor to fish. If you’re playing in the singleplayer mode, you don’t need to wait so long — just open the inventory, and halt the game time.
Some types of fish can be caught only from the Submarine, these are Blobfish, Midnight Squid, and Spook Fish. During the ride, you can also catch Octopus, Seaweed, Super Cucumber, and Sea Cucumber. Some players have also caught a Pearl, but there is only a 1% chance of catching it.
It’s open from 5 PM to 12:30 AM. When you enter it, a mermaid greets you with singing and a cutscene begins. You may watch the mermaid’s performance for 1 hour and 40 minutes, or you can leave when you want. When playing a singleplayer Stardew Valley Xbox or Stardew Valley Steam, as well as a desktop version of the game, you can also halt the time if you open inventory.
After the performance ends, you can click the boat to play various notes. If you play the right notes in the right order, you will be awarded a special item. You can find the right sequence of notes in the Secret Note 15.
The Traveling Cart is a perfect place for those who wants to buy some unusual things. For example, here you can buy a recipe for the Wedding Ring.
Magic Shop Boat
This shop appears next to the Famous Painter Lupini. Here you can buy seeds for Stardew Valley best crops, a unique fireplace, and a unique hat, as well as many decorative items. Prices for seeds don’t differ from those at Pierre’s General Store. If you’re looking for Red Cabbage Seeds, Garlic Seeds, or Artichoke Seeds, keep in mind that you won’t be able to buy them until game year 2.
Some items change their price depending on the day of the festival. For example, we suggest that you buy the Cone Hat on day 2 when its price is the lowest. If you buy the Log Section on day 3, it will cost you 150 gold less than it usually costs at the Carpenter’s Shop. The Grave Stone can be purchased either at the Night Market or at the Spirit’s Eve festival, however, at the Night Market, it also costs 150 gold less.
