Post International Food Fair in East Village

Has anyone been to this event in previous years? What was your opinion?

I went last year. A lot of good food, and easy to sample a lot of different stuff. I thought the prices were a little on the high side for the sample you got tho. If you want to get full, plan on spending $20 a person.

There was some music, and people walking around, but not too crowded. I endorse going, though I don't believe I will be going this year.

Is it an outside venue?

I went this year. Most of the items I got were not nearly as good as the description suggested. A couple of them warranted only one bite and then into the trash cans.

Wall to wall people, partly because it was such a nice day. I'm afraid it is all but impossible to put out a good product when you are trying to feed that many people.

Yes, it was outside. $20 per person may be fairly accurate.
