  • The Queens Night Market is a massive celebration of the borough’s diversity — it features vendors from all over the world serving dishes from all over the world.
  • We visited the Queens Night Market on a recent Saturday for a few bites and a lot of photographs.

The Queens Night Market is an unforgettable experience.

Whether you’re a native New Yorker or a first-time visitor, the weekly food celebration should be at the very top of your to-do list. For the last several years, the Queens Night Market has connected local, small food vendors from Queens with anyone looking for a delicious bite.

Last Saturday, my partner and I headed to historic Corona, Queens to eat dinner and document the festivities:

The Queens Night Market sets up shop in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, a historic NYC park created by Robert Moses in the early 20th century.

The first thing you need to know about the Queens Night Market is that it’s located at the New York Hall of Science. If you see the rockets, you’re in the right place.

You’ll also probably smell the event before you arrive. Let your nose guide you — if the crowds of other people haven’t already — to the Queens Night Market, which is just around the back of the Hall of Science.
