In 2020, a fraught year for the food industry, the Bronx Night Market was the only open-air market to operate in New York City during the fall and winter seasons. Through difficult challenges and with COVID-19 safety measures in place, the market provided an outlet for the community and a much-needed lifeline for local vendors.
