Watch for the Markets of New York City segment on NY1 this weekend – all about the Spring Markets! Here are the markets and products featured in the story:

My awesome floral dress is handmade by Melissa Bell, and the gorgeous ruby jewelry is handmade by Jewels by Atlantis. And my hair is only this shiny when it’s been taken care of by Monika at Allure 13 Salon.

The segment should run several times throughout the weekend, and the video is usually online by Sunday evening.

Weekend Market Picks

Saturday and Sunday

abcmkt: As if we needed another excuse to visit ABC Carpet & Home, their new tabletop, kitchen and food market is a marvelous place to by products with stories. Although the vendors are not there in person, the sales staff knows the story behind every product! Check out this recent story10AM -7PM Saturday, 11AM – 6:30PM Sunday, 888 Broadway, Manhattan [Map]

Essex Street Market: The food vendors in this 1940’s indoor market are more exciting than ever: heritage meats, fresh baked goods, fishmongers, American cheeses, and so much more. Go hungry and bring a big tote bag. 8AM – 7PM Saturday, 10AM – 6PM Sunday, 120 Essex Street at Delancey, Manhattan [Map]

Smorgasburg and Winter Brooklyn Flea Winter Market: This is the last weekend for Smorgasburg and the Brooklyn Flea in their winter home. Next weekend, they open in their outdoor venues for the spring season! For all the details, check out their press release. 10AM – 6PM, 80 North 5th St., Brooklyn (Map)


*NEW! Sugar Hill Market:  This brand new market in Harlem will feature handmade artisans from uptown in a variety of locations around the area. This weekend’s opening event is important to make sure that future events take place. So make sure you go!  11AM to 6PM, Il Caffe Latte, 458 West 145th Street,Manhattan [Map]

Greenflea: Now that the weather is warming up, this large flea market on the Upper West Side will likely have more of their outdoor vendors back outside. But don’t forget to visit the indoor vendors too! 10AM – 6PM, Columbus Avenue between 76th and 77th Street West, Manhattan [Map]

Jackson Heights Greenmarket:  I always love going to this market, not just for the wide variety of produce and its proximity to great Indian restaurants, but for the people watching. 8AM – 2PM, 34th Ave at 78th St, Queens [Map]

NOTE: On Tuesday, April 1, Artists & Fleas opens their permanent venue inside Chelsea Market. They have been holding pop-up markets in the event space on the 10th Avenue side of the market. Now we can rest assured that they will be there 7 days a week for the next 5 years! More stories to come.
