Weekend Market Picks November12 & 13, 2016: The Markets Must Go On

Stone Barns apples

At the risk of offending some readers, this week has been a tough on in New York City. No platitudes here. Just that still, each morning, I wake up in a happy daze, and then the reality of our future hits me and knocks me down a notch. So on this sunny, chilly weekend, my plan is to grab a fresh, crunchy apple, support small creative businesses, and hang out in the enlightened environment in which I choose to live and contribute.

On an aside note, on Wednesday James prevented a tiny lady wearing a T**** badge larger than her head from stepping right into oncoming traffic. She stepped, and he put out a protective arm to pop her back on the sidewalk. She thanked him and noted that New Yorkers are nicer than she expected. Yeah, we know.

Weekend Market Picks

Saturday, November 12, 2016

Full Moon Market: Come here for magik, meaningful jewelry, Tarot, candles, and charms! 1PM – 6PM, at Catland Bookstore, 987 Flushing Ave, Brooklyn

East 67th Street Flea & Farmers Market: The East 67th Flea is a great market. It’s not big, but it’s filled with the coolest things. The vibe is mellow, so it’s a great place to browse and chat with the vendors who know a lot about a lot of things. 10AM – 5PM, 419 East 66th Street, Manhattan

Saturday & Sunday, November 12 & 13, 2016

Artists & Fleas: You really must visit this large mixed market’s venues in Brooklyn and Manhattan (LA too) if you haven’t been in a while – or ever. It’s filled with the coolest vintage collections, and handmade everything – jewelry, decor, candles, t-shirts – and so much more. Just go. See for yourself.  See website for times and locations

Bryant Park Holiday Shops: Kicking off the holiday season, the revitalized Holiday Shops in Bryant Park are the place to shop from favorite and new vendors, try amazing food from the expanded food section, skate with your friends, and come back again! 11AM – 8PM, Bryant Park, Manhattan

Chelsea FleaI don’t know what’s more interesting – the objects in this market, or the people. You can enjoy both for a mere $1, and take home countless treasures from New York city’s closets. 6:30AM – 6PM, West 25th Street between Broadway & 6th Avenue, Manhattan

Pie & Cheese Social at Essex Street Market: This is the first annual event that pairs sweet pies from Petee’s Pic Co. with savory cheeses from Saxelby Cheesemongers! Tickets are a mere $15, but if you can’t get one, go to the market anyway to sample some of the amazing foods and products in this historical Lower East Side location. Open Mon – Sat 8AM  7PM, Sunday 10AM – 6PM, 120 Essex Street, Manhattan 

ID Pop Shop at Chelsea Market: The November pop up is on through this weekend with a fabulous collection of New York’s top independent designers of jewelry, fashion, accessories, and decor. And it’s right in the middle of Chelsea Market, so take yourself out to lunch after you buy your new winter wardrobe! 10AM – 7:30PM, Chelsea Market, 75 9th Avenue, Manhattan

Renegade Craft Fair: One of the longest running nationwide fairs featuring absolutely wonderful handmade goods from across the country. Renegade offers a nationwide market to creative entrepreneurs, and if you do your holiday shopping here this weekend, you will win. 11AM – 6PM, Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, Manhattan

Sunday, November 13, 2016

Grand Bazaar NYC: I hope you’ve made up to the Upper West Side to visit this market because it’s been so great to see it come back to life over the past few months. Kudos to them for their awesome events and for bringing in – and bringing back – great antiques, handmade, and food vendors. Proceeds go to support school activities too! 10AM – 5:30PM, 100 West 77th Street at Columbus Avenue, Manhattan

Jackson Heights Greenmarket: To me, this Greenmarket represents the great things about our country: diversity, commerce, entrepreneurship, agriculture, community, families, and delicious food. To you, it might just mean the broadest selection of hot peppers in the city. Either way, it’s a lovely place to spend a Sunday morning. 8AM – 3PM, 34th Avenue at 78th Street, Queens
