Untapped Cities: The Queens International Night Market Returns With Cricket Pasta, Fried Chicken Feet and More
Foodies have been impatiently twiddling their thumbs for the return of the Queens International Night Market ever since it closed up shop for the winter. With the frosty scourge finally over, locals and tourists alike flocked to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park for the spring debut of the open air night market, which took place over the weekend on Saturday, May 5th. Belt buckles loosened in advance, we were given an early look at the vendors — some new, some returning — that will be dishing out their wares for the season.
Now in its fourth year, the much-anticipated event brings together a rotating cast of over 100 local vendors that represent over 80 countries. This year, 20% of total ticket sales from “early preview” sessions are being donated to two organizations: Queens Community House, which aims to provide individuals with the necessary tools to enrich and built healthy, inclusive communities, and WhyHunger, dedicated to ending hunger and poverty by connecting people to nutritious and affordable food.
