Check out the vendors at this year’s Queens International Night Market

Written by

Aside from the pending warm weather, you have every reason to be excited for spring in NYC. Why? Two words: Flea Markets. Some of the city’s best outdoor bazaars offer everything from vintage antiques and throwback clothing to artwork and, most importantly, delicious eats from some of the best restaurants in Gotham.

However, some markets nail the grub portion better than others. Queens International Night Market certainly ranks high on our list for not only its outstanding curation of food purveyors, which sell the best dishes from around the world, but for its affordable $5 price cap on most items. Best of all, the foodie haven is open late (6pm–midnight), and offers performances—think dance troupes and live music—to keep you entertained between bites.

The market—located at the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows Corona Park—opens the weekend of April 22, but will charge $5 the first two weekends in an attempt to control the crowds. Half of the proceeds will be donated to three local non-profits, including the New York Immigration Coalition, the New York Police and Fire Widows' and Children's Fund, and the Flushing Meadows-Corona Park Alliance. (Get your tickets here.) But don't fret—the market will be free once again starting May 6. 

To get you pumped for this beloved Queens festival, we got in-touch with the people who run the night bazaar, and they so kindly shared this year's INSANE food vendor lineup below. Note: The market is still looking for more additions, so feel free to apply online ASAP (
