The Bronx Night Market will be taking over Fordham Plaza every Saturday for the next few months.
The foodie’s paradise that’s been putting Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg to shame, and has been an overwhelmingly successful open air, uptown food market, has announced it’s moving from a bi-weekly to a weekly format because of high demand for some of the Bronx and city’s best culinary pop ups.
In addition to the weekly expansion, the market will also be adding ten new vendors to its already massive lineup, including one vendor serving up some tasty treats from across the pond. Carter’s Chips will be bringing some of Brittan’s best fish and chips to the plaza…with an interesting twist.
They serve fish-shaped sandwiches with savory fillings like chicken pot pie and English-style burger flavors.
In addition to offering hand cut fries, Carter’s will also be introducing its foot long fry which when measured, lives up to its name.
Many market favs will be returning for the late summer expansion as well.
The Bronx Burger Co. has quickly become a staple at the Bronx Night Market, showcasing its maple bacon burger that’s heavenly taste could turn atheists into believers upon one bite.
Offered by another Bronx food establishment, Fried Kitchen, are fully-loaded potato waffles fries with fried chicken, a perfect fit for breakfast, lunch or dinner, in addition to many other of the borough’s greats.
One out-of-towner, San Antonio’s Wood Fired Pizza continues to bring a mobile brick oven to Fordham, supplying the best of pizza time for all marketgoers. Bronx Native is also dishing out some of the Bronx’s most authentic apparel as well.
All this great action while the market team continues its extensive partnership with SummerStage as the official food vendors for the citywide concert series.
Recently, a SummerStage regular, Taste Buds Required, showed Queens and Brooklyn the true punch Haitian cuisine can deliver.
