Weekend Market Picks for Mom, May 12-13, 2012: Macaron Parlour’s Ice Cream Macarons
We went to visit Mad. Sq. Eats this afternoon to get some more macarons for the weekend from Macaron Parlour. Lo and behold, Macaron Parlour Co-Founder Christina Ha handed us this miraculous gem – an Ice Cream Macaron! This one is filled with lemon ice cream with blueberry jam swirls, and it is absolutely delicious. In fact, it tastes just like summer. Madison Square Eats features great artisanal food vendors, and it is open in Worth Square (just north of the Flatiron Building) through June 1, 11AM – 9PM. Congratulations to the newlyweds Christina and her groom Simon Tung!
Here are my Market Picks for Mom:
Saturday & Sunday, May 12 – 13, 2012
Crafts on Columbus: This is the last weekend for the Spring Crafts On Columbus event. This traditional craft market is brimming with handmade clothing designs, accessories, jewelry, and other high quality creations that your mom would love to choose from. The venerable Greenflea is right across the street for more strolling and shopping, and on Sunday the 77th Street Greenmarket is hosted inside the schoolyard with the Greenflea. (Manhattan, Columbus Avenue between 77th & 81st St.)
Dekalb Market: Spend the afternoon with Mom strolling through the artisanal boutiques and handmade crafts at the the Dekalb Market in Downtown Brooklyn. Food, drinks, shopping and music — all amidst the cleverly repurposed shipping containers. And how about some special Mother’s Day Offers? Happy Mother’s Day indeed! (Brooklyn, 138 Willoughby Street at Flatbush Avenue)
Fulton Stall Market: I really love this market for its energy and the diversity of vendors there. They have farm produce, delicious prepared foods, crafts, and even a wonderful fine artist each weekend. The setting in the Seaport is a great destination for exploring a different part of the city with Mom this weekend! (Manhattan, 94 South Street)
Hell’s Kitchen Flea: The Hell’s Kitchen Flea is a fantastic place to take your mom if she likes a good treasure hunt! And Sunday is the Food Truck Bazaar, featuring The New Shorty’s On Wheels, Red Hook Lobster Truck, Coolhaus, Big D’s Grub Truck, Kelvin Natural Slush, Palenque Colombian Food Truck, Valducci’s Original Pizza, Milk Truck Grilled Cheese! Are Food Trucks the new Sunday Brunch? (Manhattan, 39th Street & 9th Avenue)
Pompeii Flea and Artisan Market on Bleecker Street: This sweet market is in full swing on the sidewalks of Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village. Take some time to stop and visit with all the market sellers, as they have some real treasures on their table. This year they are welcoming several new and exciting vendors into their midst! (Manhattan, Bleecker between Carmine & Leroy)
St. Anthony’s Market: If location is everything, this market has it all. Situated under colorful umbrellas along the fence of the Shrine Church of St. Anthony of Padua on Houston Street’s wide sidewalks, the market features a nice variety of craft artisans, world crafts, and awesome look-alike sunglasses. Spend the day with Mom in Soho, and make sure you hit this market along your travels. (Manhattan, West Houston and Sullivan Street)
And a shout out for the Big Fat Flea on Sunday! I hadn’t heard of it before, but it looks like fun! (Manhattan, 208 West 13th Street)
You know your mom just wants to spend time with you this weekend. So take her by the hand and go explore the city together by visiting the markets that are, coincidentally, also chock full of awesome gifts for moms!
