Food truck lovers will have another chance to sample some of the city’s best offerings this summer in Harlem.

Vendy Plaza, the outdoor food market which has been running for three years, will open for the second time at La Marqueta on Park Avenue between 115th and 116th Streets in East Harlem on Sunday.

The open air food event will feature 15 street vendors from around the city along with music and other treats.

City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito teamed up with the Urban Justice Center, which conducts the annual Vendy Awards for the best food trucks in the city, to create the event and spotlight New York’s unsung chefs.

“Visitors will be able to savor the best Latin food along with other diverse culinary eats vendors will be offering. El Barrio will be on everyone’s Sunday’s must visit list this year,” she said in a statement.

The plaza will be open every Sunday, except July 3 for Independence Day weekend, until October.
