Bi-annual outdoor market Mad. Sq. Eats returns for its second encampment of General Worth Square inside Madison Square Park this week. With 90 degree days likely behind us, it's time to actually enjoy being outdoors again until we're entombed in ice shelters for several months.
The impressive roster of vendors includes some new faces like Mr Bing Beijing Street Food, which popped up on the Bowery serving savory Chinese crepes and has been nominated for a Vendy Award in the Rookie of the Year category. They're joined by Amali Mou, a Greek eatery that originated at Urbanspace Vanderbilt last year.
Popular stands from previews incarnations have included the frozen confections from Ice & Vice, who are doing Instagram-friendly Strawberry & Cream Ice Cream Floats along with scoops of their fun flavors. With poke surging in popularity, expect a queue at Gotham Poke, too.
The Urbanspace Mad. Sq. Eats is located at the plaza between 24th and 25th Streets, where Fifth Avenue and Broadway intersect, and is open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. through October 7.
