A popular Brooklyn food market expands to Queens next week, with local vendors offering everything from lobster rolls to empanadas to Korean wings.
Known as Smorgasburg Queens—The World’s Fare, the event will take place Saturdays starting July 11 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 43-29 Crescent Street in Court Square.
According to organizers, vendors confirmed for the lineup include Long Island City’s Rest-au-Rant offering New American bites; Brine by Danny Brown, a food stand from the chef behind Queens’ first Michelin-starred restaurant; and Roosevelt Avenue Fare offering Korean wings, among several others.
A total of 30 vendors are confirmed for opening weekend, a Smorgasburg spokesperson said.
Per Smorgasburg Queens’ website, vendors from the Borough are given top priority. (“Do you have to be from Queens to participate? Basically, yes,” organizers write.)
