Weekend Market Picks

Friday, Saturday & Sunday October 31 – November 2, 2014

Brooklyn Night Bazaar: New York’s premier night market is having a Halloween Extravaganza tonight! The best costume wins $500! Plus live music and a DJ, local artisans, fantastic food, installation art, air hockey and ping pong. 7PM – 1AM, 165 Banker Street, Brooklyn (Friday and Saturday)

Marketplace at St. Anthony’s: While you’re walking through Soho, remember to stop and take your time at this sidewalk flea market. You will find everything from fine artisan goods, fair trade products, lookalike sunglasses and probably some delicious local snacking foods. 10AM – Dusk, on West Houston Street between Thompson and Macdougal Streets, Manhattan

Saturday, November 1, 2014

Brooklyn Flea: This is the last weekend to visit the Brooklyn Flea outdoors in Fort Greene for the year before they move into the new indoor location for the winter season starting next week. You can find decorative and practical vintage pieces to spruce up your apartment and your wardrobe for the winter while enjoying the cool air. And definitely plan on grabbing something delicious to eat from the famous food vendors. (Note: The Sunday flea market is closed for the season.) Saturday 10 AM – 5PM, 176 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn

East 67th Street Flea: I really love this Upper East Side flea market because of its classic vibe and a serious selection of vintage, fleas and antiques. I have found some amazing treasures here, from fascinating ephemera to stylish and sparkly vintage accessories and silver tea sets. There is also farm produce and several food vendors so you can dine in the market or take home something tasty for lunch. 6AM – 5PM, PS 183, East 67th Street between 1st and York Avenues, Manhattan

Fort Greene Greenmarket: While you’re visiting the Brooklyn Flea, you should definitely take a stroll through the Fort Greene farmers market. It is a wonderful part of this historic neighborhood, and it runs right alongside Fort Greene Park. You can grab a crisp apple or a homemade muffin for the road, and take home gorgeous cheeses and breads for later.  8AM – 4PM, Washington Park between DeKalb & Willoughby, Brooklyn

Saturday & Sunday, November 1 – 2, 2014

Artists & Fleas: EXPANSION: After years of success in Williamsburg and a brilliant second venue in Chelsea, Artists & Fleas is expanding again! They are welcoming new vendors in the space right next door to their current location, bringing the total number of vendors to 100. To celebrate this weekend’s grand opening of the new space, there will be music, a vendor costume contest, goodybags for shoppers in costume, and trick or treating at the vendor booths. That’s the spirit! 10AM – 7PM, 70 N. 7th Street, Brooklyn

Out to See: NEW I have been hearing a lot of excitement around this new market in South Street Seaport. Out to See will take place on Saturdays and Sundays through November, and they have a fantastic lineup of top local designers, artists, food purveyors and music. Also participating in this event is the Gluten Free EatUP. I am happy to note that this market is opening on the second anniversary weekend of Hurricane Sandy, which devastated that whole part of the city, lest we forget. Also nearby is the newly reopened Fulton Stall Market and the brand new South Street Local Artists boutique. Make a day of your visit to the Seaport! 11AM – 9PM, South Street Seaport, Manhattan

Sunday, November 2, 2014

Vendy Plaza: Also running through the month of November is this brilliant gathering of street food vendors who have won or been nominated for a Vendy Award, which is the premier recognition of excellence among street food vendors. So much creativity and so much amazing food! And don’t forget to cross 115th Street and visit Flea Marqueta and Harlem Seoul for local artisans and ridiculously delicious BBQ. 12PM – 6PM, La Marqueta, 1590 Park Avenue, Manhattan
