[September 28, 2009]  NEW YORK (AP) -- A husband and wife who sell tacos and quesadillas have been named New York City's best street vendors.

Fernando and Yolanda Martinez took first place Saturday at the fifth annual Vendy Awards, which celebrate the best of the city's street food.

The Martinezes make Mexican specialties out of their cart in Brooklyn and sell them for about $6 a dish. They say they're happy to know people love their food.

About 700 hundred people attended the awards ceremony at the Queens Museum of Art.

An Austrian food cart called Schnitzel and Things was named rookie of the year.
