Weekend Market Picks
Saturday, March 2, 2013
SCOOP – The Real Designer Market: Today is the soft opening for this new designer market in Soho/Nolita. The space at 268 Mulberry is now under new management. The founders of this new market are designers themselves aiming to create a space for New York’s exciting and dynamic independent designer community to gather, sell their latest creations and meet with their shoppers and supporters in person. Check out this new endeavor today! 11AM – 7PM, 268 Mulberry Street, Manhattan
Tucker Square Greenmarket: I first came across this market on my way to Lincoln Center. It is a sweet and complete farmers market in the midst of the storied Upper West Side neighborhood featuring produce, maple products, poultry, dairy and cheese. 8AM – 5PM, Columbus Avenue at 66th Street, Manhattan
Saturday and Sunday, March 2 & 3, 2013
Artists & Fleas & Chelsea Pop Up: Artists and Fleas is open year-round in Williamsburg, and this is the last weekend of their periodic artisan and flea market pop-up in Chelsea Market! Designers and vintage sellers create their own distinct market boutiques, and I always love their distinct collective vibe. Chelsea Market Pop-Up, 10AM-7PM, Chelsea Market, 75 9th Avenue, Manhattan; Williamsburg, 70 7th Street, 10AM – 7PM, Brooklyn
Grand Central Market: I can’t encourage you enough to spend some time browsing through the Grand Central Food Market. It has such a nice balance of vendors: bakeries, fishmongers, produce, cheese, spices — and chocolate! Stop for lunch and bring home some lovely ingredients or prepared dishes for dinner! And check out the new group of Kiosk Vendors in the Graybar Passage! 10AM – 7PM Saturdays, 11AM – 6PM Sundays, 7AM – 9PM Weekdays, Grand Central Terminal, Manhattan
Vegetarian Food Festival: The thing I like the most about vegetarian events is that they are places where vegetarians can feel comfortable and safe about the things they eat and buy. Vegans need to be a bit more careful, but there are treats for you here as well. Great speakers, events for kids and a fabulous lineup of vegetarian food and product vendors! 10AM – 5PM both days, Metropolitan Pavilian, 125 18th Street, Manhattan
Enjoy! Spring is right around the corner!
