Video of the Week: Macaron Parlour at the Makers Market

I went to the Holiday Sugar Market at the Old American Can Factory Makers Market a couple of weekends ago.  You really have to experience the Old Can Factory Markets for yourself because the handcrafted products and food are always high quality, and the location in the old loading dock of this former factory is really something special.  I always meet interesting people at this market and find something amazing to take home.

I couldn’t resist the Sugar Market, and I was not disappointed.  It was a beautiful event full of amazing food innovators and great designers, sponsored by Petit Paris, wonderful pastry makers that made my day with their amazing Linzer cookies and other sweet treats.  Our friends from P&H Soda Co. were there too, pouring delicious, artisanal sodas.  Their hibiscus syrup is to die for, and I can’t get enough of their cream soda.

We caught up with Simon Tung of Macaron Parlour too!  You may have seen my review of their gorgeous macarons in August.  I asked Simon what his French customers think of the S’Mores macaron.  Watch this video interview to find out!  [By the way, the macaron collection was a huge hit at our dinner party that night, although there were a few tense moments with a bit of snarling over the Salt Caramel one.  So we cut it in 5 teensy but satisfying bits, and peace reigned once again over the table.]

This Sunday brings another top notch artisan event at the Old Can Factory: Holiday Ceramics in Brooklyn Market. I have pieces from several of the city’s top ceramicists, and they are wonderful additions to my home.  (There’s a phenomenal piece under the tree for someone very special this year, but I can’t tell you what it is!)

Macaron Parlour will be at the Hester Street Fair’s Big Social Market, starting on from December 17 – 23rd.  You can also find three gift box collections of their macarons on!
