Spring Bowties from Kingston Twenty One at the Brooklyn Flea

If you want to take your mind off of the frigid temps outside, my latest story about Kingston Twenty One men’s vintage clothing and upcoming spring designs will help you remember that they day will soon come when your face won’t freeze off the moment you step outside your door.

In the meantime, if you layer up, you can still venture out and find some wonderful distractions in the markets this weekend:

Weekend Market Picks:

Saturday, February 21, 2015

  1. Fort Greene Greenmarket: A beloved neighborhood market, Fort Greene is filled with local farmers, bakers, jam makers and many others – over 20 vendors – even in deep winter. Bundle up and enjoy this beautiful parkside farmers market. 8AM – 4PM, Washington Park btwn DeKalb & Willoughby, along the southeast corner of Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn

Saturday & Sunday, February 21 & 22, 2015

  1. Artists & Fleas: Check out their markets this weekend in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Los Angeles! Outstanding handmade and vintage designs! See website for locations and times

  2. Brooklyn Flea Indoor Winter Market: The indoor space is warm and cozy. Go find your favorite vintage and food vendors this weekend, and meet your friends at Berg’n! 10AM – 6PM, 1000 Dean Street, Brooklyn

  3. Chelsea Flea Market: The flea market is open, rain, shine, snow or heat! So let’s show our appreciation by stopping by to pick up something beautiful and vintage – like a dozen sweaters! 9AM – 6PM, Uptown Side of West 25th Street between Broadway and Sixth Avenue, Manhattan

  4. ID Pop Shop: This fine design market featuring top local designers of fashion, accessories and home decor, pops up through this weekend. Check out one of their regular designers, Lucky Selectism, which is having their own pop-up market this month, also in Chelsea Market! 10:30AM – 7:30PM, Chelsea Market, 75 9th Avenue, Manhattan

Manhattan: Wednesdays – Sundays, 159 Bleecker Street, Brooklyn: Wednesdays – Sundays, 218 Bedford Avenue (Check website for times)

Sunday, February 22, 2015

  1. Brooklyn Pop Up Market: This market has a really great balance of artisan and food vendors, and it’s a short walk from the L train! So it’s a great candidate for a weekend outing, especially because they’re hosting a National Margarita Day Celebration , plus a sewing workshop – two great things that go great together!  12PM – 6PM, 49 Wyckoff Avenue, Brooklyn

  2. Carroll Gardens Greenmarket: Open year-round, this neighborhood market features over a dozen vendors, with an especially nice variety of proteins (fish, turkey, duck, chicken, grassfed beef and pork). 8AM – 3PM, Carroll St and Smith St, Brooklyn

  3. GrowNYC Shop N Swap: I went to my first shop n swap, clutching an item I wasn’t sure I wanted to part with. But the communal swapping was so much fun that I got right into the spirit. I even met the lady who ended up with my item, and someone else pointed me towards some fabulous Buffalo China plates – all free! So bring something or just go shopping – it’s a crapshoot, and it’s a blast. 12PM-3PM, Bay Ridge Jewish Center, 405 81st Street (enter on the corner of 4th Ave), Brooklyn
