You’ll find everything from stir-fry noodles to Jamaican jerk chicken and cupcakes for desert, reflecting the cultural and culinary traditions of Queens, the most multi-cultural part of New York City.
Queens Night Market is at the South Plaza of Rockefeller Center, Mondays through Saturdays from 11am to 5pm. It will be open through November 30th.
There’s limited seating in the vendor area, and plenty more surrounding the world-famous ice skating rink, in the Channel Gardens and in the North Plaza for those – like me – who don’t like to eat standing up in the street.
This is the only spot this year to experience the multi-cultural food experience of the Queens Night Market, since the season has been cancelled for the Queens location.
Although there aren’t as many vendors as there would be in Queens, there’s enough for a snack or take-home meal.
And it’s important to support local food vendors, who have been hit hard by the Pandemic.
Some of the vendors include:
- Joey Bats Cafe – Portuguese Pastéis de Nata
- Treat Yourself Jerk – Jamaican Jerk Chicken
- The Fried Kitchen – Fried Chicken Sandwich (or on Waffles)
- Maimika’s Homemade Cuisine – Nasi Kuning, Vegan Dumplings & Stir-fry Noodles
- La Braza – Empanadas, Meat Skewers & Roasted Corn
- Dilenas Dolcini – Cake Pops, Boozy Gummy Bears, Cookies, & Cupcakes
The Queens Night Market posted on their Instagram that they “expect to be back bigger, better, more diverse, and just as affordable as ever next year.”
