The Brooklyn Night Market Returns in 2024

Set to illuminate Industry City once again on April 29, the Brooklyn Night Market returns for its third dazzling year, transforming the last Monday of each month into a culinary haven. Running through October, this vibrant assembly not only showcases an array of top-notch eateries within a single street but also becomes a bustling hub for up to 6,000 patrons and 65 vendors, including local enterprises extending beyond the realm of gastronomy.

The Brooklyn Night Market successfully combines the vastness of the borough’s culinary scene with the warmth of a community gathering. Though this year’s vendor list remains under wraps, previous participants such as Brooklyn Dim Sum Co, ROSTACY Jamaican Kitchen, and Brown Butter Bakes have set high expectations for the quality and variety attendees can anticipate.

Nestled between two imposing structures of Industry City, the market thrives outdoors along 36th St between 2nd and 3rd Avenue, starting from 4pm. It emerges as an ideal locale for post-work relaxation, offering stunning sunset views over the Upper Bay and a tapestry of flavors that epitomize Brooklyn’s unique culinary landscape.

Brooklyn’s food scene prides itself on its collection of family-owned restaurants and small businesses, many without a physical storefront. The Brooklyn Night Market is a platform for local chefs, artisans, and entrepreneurs to showcase their talents.

Marco Shalma, MHG’s founder, encapsulates the essence of the event, stating that the Brooklyn Night Market is a true Brooklyn’s culinary prowess, against the dynamic canvas of Industry City. It’s a place for both residents and tourists to indulge in the borough’s eclectic tastes and resilient spirit—always vibrant, always enticing.

Attendance is complimentary, with no tickets required. However, an RSVP grants you a chance at raffles and exclusive giveaways.
