Springtime is here, which means that it's finally outdoor food market season.
Urbanspace recently announced their 2016 vendor list for their pop-ups; Madison Square Eats, Broadway Bites, and Urbanspace Garment District-- and it left us drooling for more.
While they'll be welcoming back some fan-favorites, each pop up will have some new faces.
So where are we eating? Check out our list here.
Madison Square Eats (Flatiron District by Madison Square Park)
Ice & Vice and Squish
If you haven't yet heard of Ice & Vice you need to listen up: it's one of the most creative ice cream shops in NYC. Hands down. Make sure to try their "Detention Ice Cream Sandwich" with malted vanilla ice cream, Mexican chocolate brownie, and fruity pebble dust.
They're teaming up with Squish, a marshmallow company based in NYC that's popping out small batch, unique marshmallows that will challenge your perception of a marshmallow.
Hailing from California, Jicama is bringing "California Street Food" with flair with their NYC tamaleria popup, Masa.
Masa will be serving up gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options at their Urbanspace popup.
Broadway Bites (Greeley Square on 34th Street)
Ever want to try goat meat? Hit up Dùndú for some Ayamase sauce with beef, goat meat, and honey tripe in a spicy sauce.
Not feeling the goat? Stick to the peppered chicken or spicy seared beef.
Craving some killer Thai food? Hit up Kaya for some pork belly bao (or pork belly buns) with cucumber and scallions served with hoisin sauce.
Don't like pork? Try the peking duck bao made with roasted duck, cucumber and scallion served with hoisin.
Urbanspace Garment District (Broadway between 39th and 41st Streets)
Ever wanted to try what Chicago-style so-called-pizza tastes like? Now's your chance. Check out Emmett's. This Chicago native's deep dish pizza actually has the pizza sauce is on top of the cheese.
Crazy, right? Though we'll keep our pizzas flat (thank you very much), this pie certainly has its value, but we can't categorize it as a pizza.
Macondo, formerly known as Taco Bono, is expanding with their branch, Delicatessen Taco, to serve their same delicious food.
How about downing a few tacos filled with house-smoked meats at this summer's market? Challenge: accepted.
