How To Reach There

There are many options to reach the Queens Night Market, but the organizers suggest the visitors to simply walk or bike to reach the location due to less parking area. You can catch the subway. Take the 7 train to the 111th Street station. Walk south 4 blocks until you pass under an overpass. You will see the Night Market behind the New York Hall of Science on the Left. If you still plan to reach there in the comfort of your car, the adjacent car park, which is not controlled by the Queens Night Market will cost you $15.

Additional Information

  • Food Allergies: If you have any kind of substance intolerance or allergies make sure you talk to the food vendor before giving your order. The vendors change every weekend and so it is not possible to give a single menu. 
  • Accessibility: The market area is very much wheelchair accessible though there are some grassy areas which can cause a navigation problem. 
  • Pet Friendliness: The event is not pet friendly due to crowding and behavioral concerns and thus, pets are not allowed. 
  • Payment: Most vendors accept only cash, so it is advisable to keep some cash handy. Some do accept online payments along with cash payments but not all. 

This weekend, get ready to reach the Queens to witness the best event to spend some time with your family and friends in an affordable way. Get your hands on the best craft by small artists and do not miss the underrated performances while enjoying a variety of foods. See you at the Queens Night Market!
