What happens when the nation's most ethnically diverse borough hosts a night centered around food? Heaven, that's what.

The Queens International Night Market is back this weekend with plans to serve up some of the best finger-lickin' good street food, to hundreds of hungry residents and visitors from all five boroughs.

The event will take place on Saturday, May 2nd from 6 p.m. to midnight at the New York Hall of Science parking lot in Corona Park (near 44th Ave and 111th St), and every Saturday thereafter until October.


This chow fest is expected to host as many as 40 food vendors at this weekend's market, and more as each weekend passes.

Folks can choose from a wide variety of delicious food options from around the world that like Taiwanese fried chicken, Korean fried chicken, empanadas, Peruvian steak sandwiches, Colombian hot dogs, fried ice cream, fried noodles, mini Dutch pancakes, and more!

"We now have more than double the food vendors that we had the first week," John Wang, the founder of the market said. "We had over 200 food vendor applications since opening night. We will also expand the footprint of the event now that we know the size of the crowds that we are capable of drawing."
