New York Hall of Science, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens, New York
Queens Night Market Hours: Every Saturday from March to October, 5 pm-12 am.
New York City is one of the most culturally diverse and historically rich cities in the US, and Queens has a district that lives and breathes heritage, vibrancy, and exciting culture. One of the best expressions of the buzzing community spirit that animates this corner of New York, is the Queens International Night Market, a huge open-air event that celebrates local artisan crafts, makers, entrepreneurs, and chefs.
The Queens Night Market bursts into life once a week from April to October, taking over the New York Hall of Science in a riot of color, food, and diverse culture, that all makes Queens an exciting place to live or visit. It is one of the best street food festivals, New York has to offer. In addition, it’s a superb place to discover independent makers and artisan crafts, bringing the atmosphere of Asia’s world-famous night markets to historic Corona Park.
Despite the rich offerings and joyful atmosphere of the event, the Queens Night Market remains a little off the beaten track but is really the only place to go in New York to really indulge yourself in authentic street food culture. With over 100 vendors plying their trade every week, and prices capped to keep everything affordable, this is New York’s least pretentious, most affordable, and delicious festival of food. Why would you want to go anywhere else?
