Market Events and Highlights This Weekend

Looking for the perfect thing to do on a cool fall weekend?  Visiting New York and want to see something really special?  In addition to the amazing weekend markets, including the Brooklyn Flea, the Brooklyn Indie Market, the Hell’s Kitchen Flea, all the Greenmarkets and so many more, I highly recommend these events for shoppers, foodies, and explorers alike!

Saturday, October 16:

Crafts in Chelsea: The {NewNew} Artisan Group is taking over the bucolic block of 21st Street between 8th & 9th Avenues in Chelsea to bring their beautiful, innovative, and incredibly diverse designs to the street. Not to be missed!  Saturday, 9AM – 5PM.

Grub Street Food Festival at the Hester Street Fair: Normally, Grub Street is virtual wonderland of food, leaving you drooling on your keyboard.  But this weekend, Grub Street comes out in 3D!!  Maybe even 4D, based on the amazing lineup of delicious local food purveyors.  Sponsored by Grub Street, Hester Street, and New York Magazine. Foodies – get there early! 10AM – 6PM

Special Grub Shout Out: Brooklyn’s own Anton Nocito, also known as P&H Soda & Syrup, is raising $18,000 in one month to launch his soda and syrups business in a big way.  P&H  sodas are made from local ingredients where possible, as well as organic or fair trade fruits, sugar and spices.  Even Mayor Bloomberg would approve! Please click through and make a contribution to his project!  Meet Anton at the festival and be a part of this awesome fizz!

Madison Square Market: This market is so lovely, with a wonderful variety of fine handmade designs and some of the best food in town, including great stuff for kids!  And this Saturday is the Madison Square Park Kids Fall Festival!  It’s a perfect family day in the park!  The Madison Square Market runs daily 11AM – 8PM through 10/23.

Sunday, October 17:

Pickle Day: Sunday is the 10th Annual NYC International Pickle Day!  Held on Broome St. at Essex in the Lower East Side, it feature some of the greatest pickle, kimmchi, cheese, and other food vendors from all of the markets around the city – and a whole lot more!  I recently had Ronnie Sue’s Dark Chocolates Pickle Bonbon.  Seriously.  If you love pickles, you will LOVE that bonbon. 

The New Amsterdam Market: I am so happy that the market has become a weekly event.  In addition to all the bounty from the fall harvest, Good Food Jobs is going to be at the market.

See you at the markets!
