This market is a chili cook-off and a brewing contest all in one. While we could easily just leave it at that, what makes this two-in-one street food market even better is that attendees have the option to be judges since there is also an award for the fan-favorite chili – everyone’s a winner.

While it’s not an outdoor street market, The Mutz Festival still ranks high on the list simply because it’s all about mozzarella cheese. New Jersey cheese lovers and especially, Hobokenites, affectionately refer to the delicious dairy product as “mutz” and have even dedicated an entire festival to discovering who makes it best.
