After hearing many things (both good/cheap & bad/crowded) about the Queens Night Market located at the New York Hall of Science, we finally made it on a rainy Saturday night.
Normally the night market operates in summer (late april-august) but this year it’s open for Saturdays in october starting oct 8. In the past, especially for the opening last apr 23rd, the crowds had been immense & made the night market hard to navigate, however last night due to the drizzling rains it was perfectly uncrowded. There were still a smattering of rain hardy foodies enjoying the cheap eats (most things priced $3,4,5 or $6) & playing in the inflatable knockerballs.
Halloween is looming so of course there were jack-o-lanterns
Now onto the food….meat on sticks
Next mac & cheese (baby’s fav)
Ecuadorian hot dog
Shark Sandwich (when I asked what type, they said Mako-not sure what I was expecting–great white?)
Gourmet twinkies in crazy awesome flavors (pandan, rose macadamia, bananas foster, maple bacon, fruity pebbles)
Random Chucky doll at a t-shirt stand (when asked if Chucky was October only we were told he is always there)
Tornado chimney cakes
Cotton candy art
Opted for the heart (orange & blue raspberry)
The minion cotton candy is too cute!
Peking duck being sliced for baos
Pork rice bowl with egg
Arepa filled with mozzarella topped with beef
Now to play!! The muddy field next to the food had a wine/beer garden & giant inflatable balls to collide into your friends (Knockerballs)
Who says you can’t have fun in the rain?
