As much as we love Smorgasburg, not all of us can make the trek to its Brooklyn and Manhattan outposts that often. But there’s another food mecca that needs to be on your radar—a “global food celebration,” in fact—just a train ride away.
The Bronx Night Market features more than 50 vendors with a happy (and super affordable) blend of food, drinks, music and all the Bronx culture vibes. Now in its second year, the market recently went from a monthly event to an all-out summer block party every Saturday (thanks to a Facebook poll overwhelmingly in favor of it), now through October. It’s all about spotlighting the borough’s incredible offerings, which means more than half of the vendors are local. Oh, and did we mention there’s no entry fee? From chicken-and-waffle sandwiches to fried ice cream, here are 13 vendors that’ll have you coming back every weekend.
