Weekend Market Picks for August 13-14, 2011 Featuring ShayaNYC!

ShayaNYC is one of my very favorite jewelry designers.  My husband listened very carefully and got me a Victoria double lariat necklace and matching Delta earrings as a gift for Christmas last year.  I just can’t find an outfit that they haven’t been perfect for, and it wouldn’t matter if I did because I can’t stop wearing them anyway.

Designer Shay Mehubad sells most weekends at the Nolita Market, and he just launched his new website –  He’s running a giveaway right now – sign up for his mailing list, and you could win a pair of his hand-hammered Isabelle earrings!  Can’t pass up a chance like that, can we?

Weekend Market Picks!

This weekend, I’m featuring the wonderful and diverse markets in Williamsburg!

Saturday and Sunday

Artists & Fleas:  This market is one of the first of the new breed of markets in New York City.  It is a wonderful, indoor collection of artisans and flea market vendors.  And I’ll let you in on a secret – they have awesome food vendors too!


Smorgasburg:  As I’ve said before, I think this market is a wonderful addition to the market and the foodie scene, not to mention the tremendous creative and entrepreneurial spirit that abounds.  Go for lunch or dinner, and bring home some tasty ingredients for the rest of the week.

Williamsburg Waterfront Greenmarket:  Set in the same waterfront location as Smorgasburg, this weekend farmers market market provides the neighborhood with fresh local produce and artisanal food products.

Moore Street Market / La Marqueta the Williamsburg:  I strongly suggest you visit this indoor food market, serving Williamsburg since 1941.  The fare is primarily Caribbean and Latin American ingredients, and there are two food counters serving up delicious lunches.  Urban Oyster offers a wonderful neighborhood tour that features the history of the Moore Street Market.


Brooklyn Flea:  On Sundays, the Brooklyn Flea sets up its tents at the Williamsburg Waterfront as well.  You know the Flea?  The international tourist destination filled with handmade, vintage, home decor, and edible treasures?  Yeah, that’s the place.

So hop on the L train and get yourself over to Williamsburg sometime this weekend!  Your wallet, walls, wardrobe, and tastebuds will appreciate it!
