Following up on last week’s announcement that Smorgasburg will be opening up shop in Coney Island this summer, the exceedingly popular food fest from the Brooklyn flea folks recently declared they would be expanding to Queens as well.

Slated to open on July 11th in a 7,500-square-foot lot adjacent to M. Wells Steakhouse in Long Island City, the Smorg crew’s latest iteration will be set apart in that it will feature an exclusively Queens vendor list, sourcing their fare solely from restaurants within the borough's borders. The food list is still in the works, but early confirmations include Filipino eats from Papa’s Kitchen in Woodside, noodle soup from Elmhurst’s Pata Paplean, Colombian corn cakes from famed food truck veteran Arepa Lady and Mexican seafood cocktails from La Esquina del Camaron.
The market will operate throughout the summer, opening each Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., giving New Yorkers from across the boroughs plenty of time to experience everything gastronomical that Queens has to offer.
