Market Events This Halloween Weekend
It’s Halloween weekend! You can go to any artisan, farmer, food, or flea market in town and find a Halloween Wonderland. Here are a few highlights:
TONIGHT, Friday, 10/29
This is the last weekend to hang out at the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck for the season! Go to their party tonight to say so long to the Salty Pimp. 7pm-9pm, outside Destination Bar (13th and Avenue A; map).
Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket: It’s a Pumpkin Carving Contest! Bring your carved pumpkin to the market by 10AM for the judging by a select and discerning group of market farmers. You could win a bag of market goodies!!
Saturday and Sunday, 10/30 – 10/31/2010
Brooklyn Flea: Val & Andy of Kings County Salvage are giving away a free pumpkin direct from Pennsylvania with your flea purchase this weekend! Ft. Greene on Saturdays, One Hanson on Sundays.
Chelsea Market: We stopped by Chelsea Market this morning to check out their fun, artistic, and super creepy decorations (see photos). The unbelievable pumpkins carved by Hugh McMahon are back this year, better than ever! Check out the 500 lb beauty. They’re holding their family event, Chelsea Market Mash this weekend. Music and lots of fun things for kids. 2PM – 5PM, Saturday and Sunday.
Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market: If you are in need of a killer Halloween costume, then hightail it over to the Hell’s Kitchen Flea. They’re ready for you: platform shoes, retro clothes, tons of accessories, and antique eyeless babydolls. I once saw what looked like a human skull there, but that’s a story for another day. 9AM – 6PM, Saturday and Sunday.
Hester Street Fair: Not just Boo, but Boo Hoo! It’s the last weekend of the season for the Hester Street Fair! If you couldn’t squeeze yourself into the Grub Street Festival, lots of those same food vendors will be there again this weekend. So munch away and then bring the kids to the Seward Park Cooperative’s Grand Halloween Carnival. 10AM – 6PM, Saturday and Sunday.
Sunday, October 31
New Amsterdam Market: Another gorgeous weekend planned at the New Amsterdam Market! Halloween harvest, jam making workshop, and wild foragers at the market this weekend. Have some apple cider and the first pumpkin pie of the season. 11am-4pm at the historic Fulton Fish Market. Rain or Shine.
I’m working on my groovy ’70’s gogo outfit, starring the most awesome circle dress by Sohung Designs at the Young Designers Market, gigantic hoop earrings, and loads of love beads. What is your Halloween costume?
