Weekend Market Picks May 28 & 29, 2016: Color Me Chad Vegan Lipsticks

Amazing Lipsticks from Color Me Chad - They're Vegan Too

Amazing Lipsticks from Color Me Chad – They’re Handmade and Vegan Too!

I am ecstatic over Color Me Chad, a wonderful line of lipsticks and glosses that are handmade in Brooklyn and 100% vegan. I haven’t met Chad in person, but I tried his luscious matte red lipstick, called “Having It,” at a recent Shwick Market event, and I love the way it goes on and stays on. I’ve also tried his gloss, which is amazing too. His collection includes classic reds, pinks, and oranges, as well as the more forward lavender Neptune, gold Auriel, and black Coal. Color Me Chad will be at the Brooklyn Makers Market on June 18th & 19th – mark your calendar! (OFFER: Buy 1 Get 1 at 50% Off at the markets!)

Have a wonderful weekend, and thank a service person on Memorial Day!

57th Street Greenmarket: A farmers market doesn’t have to be huge to be important. The 57th Street Market, which opened for the season just last weekend, has 5 very important farmers and bakers selling everything the neighborhood needs: fruits, vegetables, baked goods, eggs, and fresh pasta! 8AM – 5PM, 9th Avenue between 56th & 57th Streets, Manhattan 

Hester Street Fair: It’s their 7th season already! This market is just a great place to hang out. You can find some of the best local artisans, incredible local food purveyors, and an excellent vibe. Sit down at a picnic table and chat up your neighbors. It’s that kind of place. 11AM – 6PM, Corner of Hester and Essex Streets, Manhattan

Saturday & Sunday, May 28 & 29, 2016

100 Miles Pop Up Shop at Artists & Fleas: Everything in this pop-up shop was made within 100 miles of Artists & Fleas. Learn the makers’ stories and enjoy the amazing things that are made right in our neighborhood! 10AM  – 7PM, 70 North 7th Street at Artists & Fleas, Brooklyn

Chelsea Flea & Antiques Market: I need to show a lot of love for this market because they have lost quite a bit of space to the horrible church fire in May next to the lot where they set up. It is filled with treasures, and you need to go there this weekend. 6:30AM – 6PM, West 25th Street between Broadway and Sixth Avenue, Manhattan

Better Than Jam Summer Pop Up: This craft pop up sponsored by Better Than Jam, the lovely handmade store in Bushwick, opens for another season in one of the historical homes on Governor’s Island. Hop on the ferry from Battery Park, and spend a weekend day strolling or biking around Governor’s Island, and shopping for beautiful handmade fashion, accessories, and art. 11AM – 6PM, Colonel’s Row 410A, Governor’s Island

LIC Flea: If ever there was a weekend to enjoy the LIC Flea and all it has to offer, it feels like this is a good one. Shop for cool handmade and vintage things, sample amazing local food from around the world, and kickback with some very cold beers from all the breweries in Queens. 11AM – 6PM, 5-25 46th Avenue at the corner of 46th Avenue and 5th Street, Long Island City, Queens

Question Pop Up Market: Who can resist “Queer Wonders and Fabulous Finds”?! Shop from local designers and makers of body products, fashion, accessories, and much more, plus performances, fortune tellers, music, and brunch! 11AM – 5PM, House of Yes, 2 Wyckoff Avenue, Brooklyn

Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit:  Now in its 85th year, this wonderful event brings art back to the Village for three days. Paintings, watercolors, prints, photography, sculpture, and handmade crafts filling the sidewalks would warm the hearts of the founding artists Jasper Johns and Willem deKooning. 1PM – 6PM, On the sidewalks of University Place from East 13th Street south to Waverly Place, Manhattan

Sunday, May 29, 2016

f.a.d. weekend: This art and handmade design event is popping up every weekend in June with a collection of makers and artists that will change each weekend. This week’s group of designers and makers is outstanding! 11AM – 6PM,  22 Boerum Place, Brooklyn

Morbid Anatomy Flea: I love this market so much for its weird and wonderful curiosities. And the crowd is as intriguing as the objects on the tables. It’s at the Bell House, so there are drinks too! 12PM – 6PM, 149 7th Street, Brooklyn
