Whether you’re looking for a cool drink or a hot snack, Urbanspace has a market for every season, to meet all of your Manhattan cravings.
Urbanspace is known for its great food and shopping environments around New York City and beyond. Their pop-up markets feature trendy new vendors alongside more established New York eateries, and the company fosters a sense of community by transforming popular city spaces into vibrant meeting places where people can gather to share great food and drinks.
With seven locations around town, there’s an Urbanspace for every time of year and every appetite:
Urbanspace Vanderbilt features over 20 artisanal and chef-driven food concepts in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. Just a few blocks north of Grand Central Terminal, this food hall is a year-round culinary destination for visitors and locals alike. Stop by for a taste of Roberta’s pizza, Dough doughnuts, Mimi’s Hummus, and a whole array of other delicious options between 6:30 a.m. and 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, or 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
2. Madison Square Eats
Nestled in New York’s historic Flatiron District, Mad. Sq. Eats brings some of the city’s best restaurants and food vendors to Worth Square twice a year.
