Queens Night Market Adds New Vendors To Its List Of International Cuisine
Queens Night Market opened on May 4, and now halfway through the 2019 summer season they’re bringing on even more food vendors to serve up tasty international cuisine.

The open-air market has been around since 2015 and with each year gets larger and more popular. So far during the 2019 season, the Queens Night Market has been averaging over 12,000 visitors per night! Their varied cuisine pulls from restaurants around the world representing food from 90 countries.

The team behind the market also decided to make some changes this year in compared to last by opening an hour earlier, doing away with the beer and wine garden partition, and lowering vendor fees; all of which have increased vendors sales and created a more family friendly environment.

The most notable part of the event for New Yorkers, however, is that all food options have a price cap of $5 (with only a few $6 exceptions). As the founder of QNM, John Wang, noted:

“We remain committed to being the most diversely attended event in NYC, which to us also necessarily means being the most affordable event in NYC.”
