CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS!

 

WHAT IS VENDY PLAZA?

Vendy Plaza is a new outdoor market series that, every Sunday this summer, brings together Vendy Award finalists and local food vendors to East Harlem’s La Marqueta. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

You can expect a curation of Vendy-Award finalists and freshly discovered local vendors serving a variety of foods, such as wood-fired pizzas, Luke's Lobster sandwiches, authentic Lechonera pork from the Bronx, and Solber Pupusas. Vendy Plaza will also feature a NY Craft Beer Garden featuring a weekly rotation of local breweries, and live music bringing to life the culture of El Barrio. 

WHY VOLUNTEER?

Vendy Plaza is run by the Street Vendor Project, a 501c nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of street vendors across the city through community building and political reform. Vendy Plaza was born from the long-term, city-backed plan to revitalize La Marqueta in East Harlem and create revenue opportunities for small food vendors as well as bring new and exciting food options to upper Manhattan. As a small non-profit, we rely on volunteers to help create change and momentum, and we cannot do it without you!

You will also receive a Taste Pass to the event as a thank you for your time. A Taste Pass will allow you to try food from 3 different vendors, and get a beer/cider/wine from our bar! 

HOW TO SIGN UP?
