NYC Foodie news: Eat your way around the world at the Queens Night Market, styled on the popular outdoor night markets of Asia, with street food and entertainment. This night-time street fair returns April 23rd for the 2016 season, every Saturday night through October 1st, in a new, larger location.
More than 100 independent food and crafts vendors reflect the population of Queens, New York City’s most international borough. When the Queens Night Market launched last fall, vendors included:
Trinidadian shark sandwiches, Guatemalan hot dogs, Hungarian Kürtös Kalács, Filipino Lumpia, Peruvian salchipapas and ceviche, Japanese Okonomiyaki, Chinese hand-pulled noodles and squid on skewers, Burmese pancakes and more, including such seasonal items as back-to-school supplies.
Last fall, it was called the Queens International Night Market, in a parking lot in Jamaica.
This season, it’s at the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
Subway directions to Queens Night Market
However you get there, it’s a lot cheaper than a trip to Chang Mai or Taipei, where I’ve eaten myself into oblivion at their famous night markets.
