Trick or Treat at Time Out Market New York

Halloween is about to get a whole lot sweeter! If you can't quite figure out which houses to hit with your little ghouls and goblins, take your family's trick-or-treating festivities to Dumbo this year. The 21 eateries at Time Out Market New York, including Clinton St. Baking Co. and Juilana’s, will host a fun trick-or-treating experience for NYC kiddos. Those with a sweet tooth will love munching on each vendor's themed offerings (for example, you'll find Thai sweets at Fish Cheeks). Make sure the youngsters are decked out in their costumes and stick around for dinner after the fun wraps up. All ages.
