Is there something important to you that represents your ethnic and cultural heritage that you would like to share with others? Is there a tradition you want to carry on and preserve? We are looking for up to 100 independent vendors to help us celebrate NYC’s and Queens’ ethnic and cultural diversity. We are looking for first-time vendors as well as established vendors who want to sell authentic art, merchandise, or food to participate in the Queens Night Market in 2023.
There are no categorical restrictions on the kinds of things you can sell or offer. While you can sell merchandise, art, or food, or even host fun games, we are family-friendly and primarily focused on cultural authenticity and traditions. We want you to share your cultural influences and the story behind what you are selling with our visitors. This generally means we are not looking for counterfeit goods, mass-produced merchandise, kitschy antiques, or experimental cuisine.
We know most of our visitors come to the Night Market for the food. We also know that visiting some of the other NYC is sometimes just too expensive. Because we are subsidizing vendor fees and trying to attract the largest and most diverse audience possible, we want the event to be affordable for everyone. We have a general $5 maximum per item, with $6 limited exceptions.
