The Mets are opening applications for Queens based small businesses to be featured at the Taste of Queens food portable during the 2024 season.
FLUSHING, N.Y., October 17, 2023 – The New York Mets are opening applications for Queens based small businesses to be part of Citi Field’s all-star culinary lineup in 2024. The Mets will select multiple Queens based small businesses to be featured at their community focused portable ‘Taste of Queens’ on a rotating basis throughout the season.
The goal of the Taste of Queens portable is to give back to the community by providing exposure for Queens based small businesses and helping them share their story with the fans at Citi Field. As part of the application process, the Mets are asking for businesses to share their story on 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.” said Mets Vice President of Hospitality Taryn Donovan. “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.”
The Mets, who were named the 2023 USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest for Best Stadium Food, debuted the Taste of Queens portable last season in Taste of the City on the field level concourse. Last season, the Mets featured four Queens based businesses including Tang, Fresco’s Cantina, The Nourish Spot and The Arepa Lady.
