Meet Me At The Markets This Weekend!

Everyone is working feverishly to get ready for the holiday markets that will be opening very soon, and I’ll be keeping you posted about all these events.  For this weekend, though, I thought I’d share my plans, and maybe you can meet me there!

TONIGHT, Friday, November 6, 2010

First Friday at The Loom: It’s a Zombie Fashion Show!  That’s right – the Better than Jam Co-Op, featuring many talented designers and artists from the artisan markets around New York, is hosting a fashion show at The Loom in Bushwick.  Plus complimentary wine, snacks, discounts at the shops, nail and hair services, and an on-site tattoo artist!  (Hold me back.)  And did I mention zombies?   7:00-10:00PM, 1087 Flushing Avenue.

Abingdon Square Market:  I’m finally doing a book signing for Markets of New York City at my market!  I’ve been shopping here for a decade, and it’s the perfect Far West Village neighborhood experience.  Fruits, veggies, breads, cookies, cheeses, flowers, kids, doggies – everything you want on a Saturday morning in New York City.  Location:  Hudson & 8th Ave between West 12th & Bethune Streets.  I’ll be there 9AM – 12PM

Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket: Just browsing, munching and shopping in Brooklyn for the afternoon.  Hoping for some delicious hot cider, apple cider donuts, and maybe some Crispin apples to take home.  Hey – it’s fall and the apples are beckoning!  Also looking forward to seeing the artisans near the entrance to the Prospect Park again.

Park Slope Flea Market: I owe this market a little love – it’s been too long.  It’s one of the longest running markets in the city, and I love wandering around and looking at everything in detail.  I’ve seen great furniture, beautiful miniatures, classic books, and even bonsai trees.

NYC Marathon!!! Last year, as we ate a bowl of cereal at the crack of eleven and watched the New York Marathon on NY1, we promised we’d get up and out this year to watch it in person.  We’ll be somewhere up on the Upper East Side in the morning to cheer on the runners.  Are you running?!

New Amsterdam Market: It feel so luxurious to be able to go to this market every Sunday now.  Hopefully Jimmy’s No. 43 will have their melt-in-your-mouth brisket sandwiches, or maybe well try Porchetta for lunch.  Probably both (it gets tiring watching the Marathon!).  Hopefully we’ll get there before Basis sells out of their honey, and we always grab a sack of chewy, buttery, amazing salt caramels from Liddabit Sweets.

Which markets will you be visiting this weekend?  I’ll be checking in on Facebook, Twitter, or Foursquare!  Hope to see you there!
