Weekend Market Picks for April 14 & 15, 2012: The Markets Are in Full Swing!

Dekalb Market Opening Day 2012

The spring season and the markets are in full swing this weekend, and the weather is heading up into the 70s just for the occasion.  Get your market bag and join me at these markets this weekend:

Saturday, April 14, 2012

East 67th Street Market:  This venerable flea market has been on the inside and outside of PS 183 since the 1970s and features antiques, farm fresh produce and flea market vendors. (East 67th Street between 1st and York Avenues, Manhattan)

Arthur Avenue Retail Market:  Located in the Belmont section of the Bronx, Arthur Avenue has for decades been a hub of Italian food and culture.  Go to the market for meats and sausages, baked goods, seafood and other Italian specialities. (Arthur Avenue at East 187th Street, Bronx)

BUST Craftacular:  The Spring 2012 Craftacular sponsored by BUST Magazine takes place Saturday with 100 talented craft and artisanal food companies.  Admission is $3, and the early birds get a free goodie bag. (82 Mercer Street between Broome and Spring, Manhattan)

Saturday and Sunday, April 14 & 15, 2012

Dekalb Flea Market:  NEW! This flea market is launching this weekend and will run Saturdays and Sundays on the sidewalk in front of the Brooklyn Technical High School.  (29 Fort Greene Place, Brooklyn)

Artists and Fleas:  This great artisan and designer market continues in two locations throughout the spring, both at its home in Williamsburg and its 30 vendor pop-up in the Chelsea Market.  Make it a trendsetting day and visit both locations! (70 North 7th Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Chelsea Market, 15th Street and 10th Avenue, Manhattan)

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Vegan Shop Up:  An all-vegan, one day pop-up shop featuring an array of foods, treats and other goods, including my friends from Meow Meow Tweet with their wonderful body products.  (Pine Box Rock Shop, 12 Grattan Street, Bushwick, Brooklyn)

Greenflea:  Another great, longtime flea and artisan market across the park from East 67th on the Upper West Side, Greenflea features dozens of vendors inside and outside of MS 44 Junior High School (Columbus Avenue between 76th and 77th Streets, Manhattan)

Don’t forget to stop by your local farmers market (GrowNYC and Community Markets) as well to pick up fresh produce, eggs, honey and spring flowers!
