Vendy Awards

The Vendys are the first street food event and competition series in the USA, providing a forum for vendors to compete for the title of Best Street food.

Now in its 12th year, the Vendys have grown to be “the nation’s most anticipated food awards,” (Every Day with Rachael Ray)

The Vendy Awards is part of the Street Vendor Project. The Street Vendor Project of the Urban Justice Center is a grassroots membership organization that helps street vendors take action to defend and expand their rights, improve their working conditions, and strengthen and grow their businesses. We also celebrate the long history of street vending in New York City, the vibrancy and energy street vending brings to communities throughout the city, and the diversity of cultures from which vendors come.
