Looking for something foodie to do in the city? The explosion of food truck fairs, outdoor markets with booze and artisans hocking everything from fresh sodas to fried anchovies is everything a foodie could wish for. Some of these markets also sell antiques and other items where you can spend the entire day shopping & eating. The trend seem far from waning with a few of these opening for the first time this summer season! Next step would be for someone to find an open space in Bergen County and get some of these vendors on the other side of the river. Check the websites for days and times!
