Weekend Market Picks August 13 & 14, 2016: Eat Your Colors

Eat Your Colors

Eat Your Colors

Do you find yourself sweating while sitting still? Do you dread opening your air conditioning bill? Have your popsicles turned into juice puddles on the way home from the store? Well, that’s August for you.

On the other hand, we have the most beautiful, fragrant, and delicious fruits and vegetables in the greenmarkets all over the city right now. The tomatoes are juicy and luscious, and I can’t shove enough luscious peaches in my cake hole. So make the most of this abundance because the farmers markets may be the only places in the city that smell good…

Saturday & Sunday, August 13 & 14, 2016

Essex Street Market: Essex Street is one of the important historic food markets in the city. It was founded in 1940 by Mayor LaGuardia, and it has been serving the Lower East Side ever since. They have added several great new food vendors recently – I can’t wait to go check them out! 8AM – 7PM Monday-Saturday, 10AM – 6PM Sunday, 120 Essex Street at Delancy Street, Manhattan

f.a.d. weekend: This weekend’s pop-up market is around the theme of social responsibility. So all of the vendors make their products locally and also have a global mission. So local may not mean New York City, but it does mean made by real artisans in their own communities around the world. Sounds great, right? 11AM – 6PM, The Invisible Dog, 51 Bergen Street, Brooklyn

ID Pop Shop: If you are looking forward to fall and cooler days, then don’t miss the chance to upgrade your look with fashion, accessories, and jewelry at this pop-up event featuring New York’s top independent designers. 10:30 – 7:30AM, inside Chelsea Market, 75 9th Avenue, Manhattan

Nolita Market: Little Italy is made for strolling, and you will want to slow down even more when you see this market next to the old brick wall on Prince Street because some of New York’s finest artisans are selling their designs under the pretty umbrellas. 10:30AM – 6:30PM, Prince Street between Mulberry and Mott Streets, Manhattan

NYC African Food Festival: Africa is a huge continent with as much food diversity as you’d expect. Try mainly (but not exclusively) vegetarian and vegan dishes, see cooking demos, and enjoy this day-long brunch party. Tickets required. 12PM  – 8PM, Brooklyn Navy Yard, 63 Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn

St. Anthony’s Market: When you find yourself in Soho, walk over to this lovely market outside the church walls on Houston Street. You’ll find clever, handmade items, colorful imports, and cool vintage finds. 10AM – 6PM, 154 Sullivan Street at Houston Street, Manhattan
