What To Do In NYC This Weekend April 27 To 29

Enjoy the outdoors with a foraging seminar and an international street food market

This weekend, stop bingeing on, well, Binging with Babish episodes and go explore the urban jungle with these food events, including a festival of cultural eats and a wine party at the New York Botanical Garden.

All Weekend

World's Fare

All it takes is a subway ride to Queens to get a trip around the world via this international market, where you can try the cuisines of more than 100 cultures.

Daffodil Celebration and Wine Weekend

Celebrate spring (for real this time) by sampling wine from a dozen-plus New York wineries. After taking in the views of the blooming daffodils, grab treats at the Botanical Garden's farmers' market.

Saturday, April 28

Foraging Essentials Class

Take a field trip to Inwood Hill Park for a chef-led workshop on the best foraging techniques and how to cook your wild finds. It's your chance to channel your inner René Redzepi (or at least your chance to learn how to survive off something other than Seamless). 

Margarita Rumble

Help pick New York's best margarita by tasting cocktails from 15 of the city's best mixologists. A portion of the proceeds will go toward Free Arts NYC.

Sunday, April 29 

Venezuelan Comfort Four-Course Dinner

Adriana Urbina, a Venezuelan native and the new chef of De Maria, is hosting an intimate dinner dedicated to the comfort food of her home country. Part of the proceeds of the meal—which is being hosted with Counter Service magazine—will go toward Accion por Venezuela. 

Vegan Pop-Up Market

The Seed, a haven for plant-based grocery shopping, is popping up at the Grand Bazaar, New York's largest curated market space. Head over for vegan eats and locally made goods.
