Half global food hall and half street fair, the Queens International Night Market is back to take you around the world in 80 dishes for a second year.
Back on the grounds of the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, the outdoor market reopens April 23 and every Saturday through Aug. 20, from 6 p.m. to midnight.
Styled after the nighttime bazaars of Asia, the cuisines actually come from around the world — try “the pierogi’s older brother” at Stolle Bakery, Hawaiian cakes from Mahalo Bakery and Korean corn dogs from Hyone’s, as well as bites from Haiti, Bangladesh, Tibet and more — most of it costing no more than $5.
Eat while watching nightly free performances, then browse the vendors selling art and clothing, accessories and more. New this year is a wine and beer garden, which frankly beats any other venue for drinking.
Opening weekend is guaranteed to be packed, so if you’re less into lines than being first on Instagram with a new dish, try back next weekend. The market is located just off the 111th Street stop on the 7 train.
