Move over, Queens. The Bronx is getting an open-air, night market next month, the first of its kind to come to the borough. Setting up shop in Fordham Plaza, the festival will include food and craft beverages from more than 35 vendors, handcrafted items and live entertainment (h/t amNY). The event is free to attend and will run starting June 30 through October, happening on the last Saturday of every month.
Organizers of the Bronx Night Market, which includes Edible Bronx and the Fordham Road Business Improvement District, say the vendors will produce “dishes and libations from all corners of the world with an unmatchable layer of authenticity and passion.”
Roughly half of the vendors at the Bronx Night Market will be local, including Empanology, Tripla Panna Ice Cream and Millie Peartree Fish Fry & Soul Food. Vendors were chosen “based on the menu, business practices and of course, THE FOOD,” the market’s website reads.
On the market’s Saturday, June 30th opening, guests can enjoy live music from two bands: The Bryan Durieux Project and Consumata Sonidera. From 5 pm to 6 pm, the band from Bronx-native Durieux will play songs that blend “alternative rock, funk and R&B.” Following that performance, Consumata Sonidera will rock out with “Cumbia-punk, ska-funk, boss-a-fusing rengue and dubbed out tarantellas” from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.
