The New York Mets are now inviting Queens-based small businesses to take part in their culinary lineup in 2024 as part of Citi Field’s “Taste of Queens.” Winning applicants will be selected by the Mets to be featured at the field level concourse on a rotating basis.
Citi Field has earned a lot of recognition for their food, having just received the 2023 USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award for Best Stadium Food. This was due in large part to the Taste of Queens, which debuted at Citi Field this year. Among the four local Queens restaurants chosen last year were Tang, Fresco’s Cantina, The Nourish Spot and The Arepa Lady.
The main purpose of the program is to give back to the Queens community by providing these local small businesses with exposure and sharing their stories. The application process involves the businesses discussing why they should be added to Citi Field’s culinary lineup for a limited time.
“We are thrilled to be able to give back to the Queens community by helping small local businesses gain exposure to our fanbase with the Taste of Queens portable at Citi Field,” Mets Vice President of Hospitality Taryn Donovan said. “We were able to highlight some incredible local small businesses through Taste of Queens last season and are looking forward to building on that success for the 2024 season.”
