Artisans, Food Trucks and Fleas – Oh My!

The Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market has been doing some exciting things up in Midtown.  Known for its classic flea market vendors selling vintage clothing, antique furniture, and other fascinating objects, the flea market is now home to the periodic Food Truck Bazaar.  The food is delicious, and who doesn’t love to eat food from a truck?  And now you don’t have to track down your favorite trucks all over town.  You can go the  Bazaar and find many of them in one spot.  The food trucks that participated in the most recent event included:

And now the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market also features fantastic local handmade Etsy artisans!  The {NewNew} Artisans Group opened up their tents at the flea market  in early April.  Frankly, I was a curious as to how well the handmade products would mesh with the vintage and antique products at this well-established market.  I’m happy to report that the artisans add a lovely new dimension to the shopping experience.  Some fine examples of the variety of handmade products on their debut weekend included:

  1. Saskia Devries, handmade Jewelry

  2. Hanky Blanky, delicate baby blankets, clothing and toys made from vintage handkerchiefs

  3. New York Clocks, featuring clocks made from any variety of nostalgic tins and boxes.

  4. Lovely Day Designs by LuCraft, selling handmade light switch plates, glass paperweights, magnets, and more

So head over to the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market on West 39 St. between 10th & 11th Avenue Saturdays and Sundays to check out all the amazing treasures there.  The next Food Truck Bazaar is scheduled for Sunday, May 8th!  Do we really have to wait that long? [nggallery id=85]
