Warm weather ushers in new lunchtime options with the reemergence of the popular Urbanspace Pop-Up Markets in Manhattan returning to various parks around the city next month.
Mad. Sq. Eats will debut first, located at Worth Square on Fifth Avenue between 25th and 26th Street near Madison Square Park. The pop-up will run from Saturday, May 13 to Friday, June 9 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Most of the vendors are standbys like pizza from Roberta’s, Beijing street food from Mr. Bing, and empanadas from La Sonrisa.
But just as many are new vendors, such as Make Sandwich, the new Union Square sandwich shop under the direction of former Bark Hot Dogs chef Josh Sharkey, will be at the market this year. Check out the menu from the restaurant, where they offer options like a spicy chicken and chorizo sandwich, a maple-ginger sausage and egg sandwich, and a roasted artichoke and spinach sandwich.
Also look for Asian tacos and hot dogs from Coney Shack as well as Korean fast-food restaurant and food truck kBBQ by Korilla. Bolivian Llama Party, one of Eater critic Ryan Sutton’s favorite vendors in the city, will also be at the market with their saltenas.
Later this summer, Broadway Bites market will launch at Greeley Square, on Broadway between 32nd and 33rd Streets, on Thursday, June 1 and run through July 14. The Urbanspace Garment District market will start shortly after on Tuesday, June 6 on Broadway between 37th and 38th Streets through July 19.
Lineups for the latter two markets aren’t finalized yet, but check out the full Mad. Sq. Eats vendor list below:
