Weekend Market Picks: March 14 & 15, 2015: Spring Markets are Opening

Asia Museum

Boom! It’s springtime! I saw hyacinths in the greenmarket this week. Central Park has been in melt mode as the sun came out for the first time in eons. The markets are blooming too! It’s just a great time to get a little sunshine of our own before the crocuses suck it all up.

This weekend marks the launch of Asia Week, a collaborative event to promote Asian art in New York City. The image above is from the Rubin Museum, which is having its Spring Bazaar as one of its activities for the week. Shop for handmade items and books from or inspired by Asia, and visit the new exhibit of Asian masks, also opening this weekend.
