The Queens International Night Market is a large and extremely family-friendly open-air night market, located right next to the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. The night market features almost 100 independent vendors selling merchandise, art and food; but it’s probably best known for the food. Goodness, the food y’all. The food.
There’s also regular, small-scale cultural performances, too. The whole affair celebrates the rich cultural diversity and heritage of my home borough, which is arguably one of the most diverse places on Earth.
I hadn’t been to the Queens Night Market in few years. Most of the past 11 years of my life have been so busy with work and running around that I sometimes forget about — well, everything else. It’s a weird life, for sure. But for a much-needed change of pace and to help local businesses that have been hurt by the pandemic and the recent storms, it felt necessary to support with my money.
