The wildly successful Queens International Night Market took Flushing by storm in its first month at the NY Hall of Science—but they'll need our help to keep the good food times going. Founder John Wang has launched another Kickstarter campaign that he hopes will fund the market's pop-ups through the month of July. While their first attempt at crowdsourcing wasn't a success, the team was able to secure private funding to make the market a reality. But Wang hopes that the very same people 30,000 who've flooded Flushing Meadows-Corona Park for the past six weeks will be the ones to see it through for the rest of the season.

"I've always envisioned the Night Market as a permanent cultural fixture here in NYC," Wang told us via email this morning. "Of course, there are some execution risks... and this thing is obviously very expensive to produce, which is why we are back on Kickstarter. But the will is there. And so is the interest from all around."

Despite opening night drama as unanticipated thousands descended on the park, Wang says he's received an endorsement from both the mayor and the governor, plus support from local politicians, the community and the vendors. "Since our second night, I actually haven't heard of any complaints about our event from the local community," he reveals. "While there is certainly no guarantee that will remain true, we are doing our best to positively impact the local community while minimizing any inconveniences the Night Market might cause. "

The campaign aims to raise $50,000 by June 30th and at press time had already received just over $2,100 in pledges. Besides perks like food vouchers, market swag and tickets to Queens attractions, the team will be hosting community events to engage potential supporters over the next three weeks.

This Saturday, LIC Bar will host a Kickstarter Pledge Party from 5 - 9 p.m. with food provided by C Bao. Both have offered to volunteer a portion of their proceeds from the event to be donated to the Market. Check their Facebook page for RSVP information.
