Groovy Shoes at The Market NYC on Mulberry

I love this time of year because the tulips are starting to bloom, and the markets are opening for the year! It looks like it’s going to be a glorious weekend to spend a lot of time outside among the flowers. So why not plan on visiting these 10 diverse and fascinating markets all over the city?

Weekend Market Picks:

Saturday, April 16, 2016

Fort Greene Greenmarket: I can’t help but love this picturesque farmers market because it is such an integral part of Saturday mornings in Fort Greene. Plan on spending some time lingering and strolling amidst the tents under the tall trees. 8AM – 4PM, Washington Park between DeKalb & Willoughby, Brooklyn 

GrowNYC Stop N’ Swap: I love these events! You can bring stuff you no longer use and swap it for cool stuff that somebody else no longer uses! I ended up with some awesome oval plates from Buffalo China at the last one I went to, and my oversized winter coat went to a great new home! 12PM-3PM, PS 184 Flushing Manor, 163-15 21 Avenue, Queens

Grand Opening! Metro Flea Night Market: Come on down to Little Italy and enjoy this night market filled with handmade products from local designers and artisans. 4PM – 10PM Fridays and Saturdays, 109 Mulberry Street between Hester and Canal Streets, Manhattan

Ridgewood Market Night Bazaar:  If you’re looking for a great place to hang out on Saturday night with neighbors, local artisans, music and a few drinks at the bar, bring your friends to the Ridgewood Night Market in the historic Gottscheer Hall, serving the community since 1924! 5PM – 11PM, Gottscheer Hall, 657 Fairview Avenue, Queens

Saturday & Sunday, April 16 & 17, 2016

The Market NYC East Houston:  This new indoor market is a must-see on your route through Lower Manhattan this weekend. It is home to local designers of fashion, jewelry, accessories, shaving supplies, and even a lovely little cafe. Open every day except Tuesdays, starting at 11AM on weekends, 290 Mulberry on the corner of East Houston Street, Manhattan

Nolita Market: The next stop on your way down Mulberry Street is the Nolita Market. You’ll see a lovely collection of local designers, awesome t-shirts, maybe a very cool candle maker, and much more along St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral’s red brick wall. 11AM – 7PM, Prince Street between Mulberry and Mott Streets, Manhattan

PS 321 Metro Flea Market: We are early in the season for this great neighborhood flea market, which is now under the management of the Metro Flea group. Look for classic flea and vintage vendors, and come for the Vegan Pop Up Market on the first Saturday of every month. I’ll remind you. Location This Weekend Only: John Jay High School, 237 Seventh Avenue between 4th and 5th Streets, Park Slope, Brooklyn

Sunday, April 17, 2016

Carroll Gardens Greenmarket:  Did you know that Carroll Gardens is named after the only Roman Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence, Charles Carroll? Neither did I! But I’m sure he’d love the neighborhood and especially the sweet Sunday greenmarket. 8AM – 3PM, Carroll Street, between Smith and Court Streets, Brooklyn

Greenpointers Spring Market: Not only are the Greenpointers markets filled with amazing artisans, they also have food and beer! Plus lots more fun activities, like a photo booth, face painting, henna tattoos, and my favorite, free bang trims!  1PM – 7PM, Greenpoint Loft, 67 West Street, 5th Floor, Brooklyn

GrowNYC Stop N’ Swap: We have TWO Stop ‘N Shop events this weekend! Saturday in Queens (above), and Sunday on the Upper Wast Side in Manhattan. Bring a thing and leave with a cool new thing! 11AM-2PM, PS 84 Lillian Weber School of the Arts, 32 West 92nd Street, Manhattan
