Weekend Market Picks for April 7 & 8, 2012: Happy Spring!

White Daffodil

I can’t even believe how beautiful the weather has been, and it looks like it’s going to be amazing the entire weekend.  So it’s a lucky thing that several markets are launching their season to such perfect weather.  If you’re visiting New York or just feel like being outside all day, then definitely get out to visit these markets.  And get your holiday hostess gifts too!

Saturday, April 7, 2012

Smorgasburg:  The Brooklyn Flea’s food extravaganza re-opens on Saturday with a killer line up of Brooklyn’s finest food purveyors. This year, Smorgasburg is opening at 11AM and closing at 6PM, an hour later than last year. Come hungry and bring a tote bag! (East River Waterfront between North 6 + 7 St., Brooklyn)

Fort Green Park Greenmarket: The Fort Green Park Greenmarket has a special place in my heart. It could be the giant London plane trees that provide perfect shade. It could be the wonderful atmosphere, and the way the neighbors love shopping here.  And it could be the outstanding selection of farmers and food purveyors. I suspect it is all of the above.  (Washington Park at Dekalb Ave, Brooklyn, NY)

Saturday and Sunday, April 7 & 8, 2012

Brooklyn Flea: The Flea launches its outdoor season this weekend!  The Saturday Flea is back in the schoolyard at Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School in Fort Greene (176 Lafayette Ave. between Clermont + Vanderbilt Ave.), and the Sunday Flea opens on the Williamsburg Waterfront. (East River Waterfront between North 6 + 7 St.)

Dekalb Market: I’m super excited to see everyone at the Dekalb Market, which is also opening for the season this weekend. It’s going to be a great place for the family too for some Easter fun, including a market-wide Easter egg hunt on both Saturday and Sunday and a petting zoo! Not to mention fantastic shopping, food, beer, and music. (138 Willoughby Street at Flatbush Ave., Brooklyn)

Nolita Market: This sweet street market opened a couple of weeks ago, and it’s such a great place to stop and shop while you’re strolling through Soho!  (Prince Street between Mulberry & Mott, Lower Manhattan)

Pompeii Artisan and Flea Market on Bleecker Street: I know you’ve walked by this market a million times, just like I did before I stopped, checked it out, and fell in love.  They launched for the season too, and they are full of great handmade and vintage goodies! (Bleecker between Carmine & Leroy, Lower Manhattan)

Enjoy yourselves this weekend, and don’t forget to stop and admire the daffodils! (Photo by James Wesolowski)
