Love exploring the foods of New York but haven't made it to the Bronx yet? You'll get your chance this weekend at the Bronx Night Market, a new monthly food festival that will take your tastebuds on a ride through the Boogie Down and beyond.
Organizers Marco Shalma of creative agency BloxNYC and Amanda Celestino of Edible Bronx launched the open-air market last month as a way to highlight both up-and-coming and established businesses from across the borough. They range from traditional Albanian restaurant Cka Ka Qellu to local craft beer powerhouse Bronx Brewery.
After a very successful first run–more than 10,000 people descended on Fordham Plaza on June 30th–the event is now adding vendors from further afield, including Korean-Mexican food truck Korilla BBQ and spud-on-a-stick purveyor Twisted Potato.
Attendees will also find a number of brands selling art and gifts, like The Bronx Native, whose "El Bronx" tees are a must for any fans of the borough.
The free event starts at 4pm this Saturday, July 28, and returns on the last Saturday of each month through October.
