The fall market season is really heating up! Are you looking for an old bike or an antique book? Do you like vegan food or high fashion? Then there’s an event for you somewhere in the city.

I want to make a special mention of the Badass Brooklyn Fall Festival on Sunday because proceeds go to support animal rescue and foster activities in the city. This organization does an heroic job of rescuing dogs from kill shelters and finding them new homes where they can love and be loved as much as they possibly can, which is a lot.

I also know that it’s going to be a great event with many of New York’s top craft artisans and local food purveyors, not to mention the beer and the raffle. It is free to attend, and you can get special tickets for beers, totes, tees and other privileges.

Brooklyn Bike Jumble: This event is amazing if you have any interest at all in biking. You can find new and used bicycles, as well as replacement parts. It is a great place to find gear you never knew you needed. 10AM – 4PM, Old Stone House at 5th Avenue and 4th Street, Brooklyn

Vegan Shop Up: The September installment of this monthly food and lifestyle market is back on Saturday with vegan food and vegan-safe products. It looks like there will be some tasty sweet treats and some savories too, not to mention the Cinnamon Snail, New York’s beloved vegan food truck. 12PM – 6PM, Pine Box Rock Shop, 12 Grattan Street, Brooklyn

Saturday & Sunday, September  13 & 14, 2014

Badass Brooklyn Fall Festival: As mentioned above, this artisan and food market is a benefit for Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue. 11AM – 5PM, President Street between 3rd and Nevins, Brooklyn

Brooklyn Antique and Book Fair: NEW! This first time event features dozens of antique dealers selling furniture, decorative pieces, folk art, fine art, jewelry and much more. The are also almost 75 book and ephemera vendors with vintage books, signed first editions, prints, ads and autographs. It sounds like the kind of place you’d want to spend hours exploring. There’s a $12 admission fee, but you can get  $5 off coupon by signing op for the mailing list. 10AM – 5PM, Brooklyn Expo Center, 79 Franklin Street at Noble, Brooklyn

Hester Street Fair Stylist Tent Sale: For the past 5 years, Hester Street has hosted a yard sale for stylists. Essentially, New York’s fashion community clears out their closets to make room for all the new treasures coming their way. And we get to shop from their amazing collections. One year I saw the most gorgeous pair of perfect, Jimmy Choo patent leather pumps. I left them for someone who could actually manage to walk in them. Je regrette. 11AM – 6PM, corner of Hester and Essex Streets, Manhattan

ID Pop Shop: Don’t miss this collection of top independent New York Designers, which is open every day through September 21st. There are several new designers starting this week, so it’s definitely worth visiting more than once before the end of their September event. Shop for fashion, accessories, jewelry and home decor, and meet the designers in person. They have announced their next pop up event for October 6-12, 2014! 10:30AM – 7:30PM, 75 9th Avenue (inside Chelsea Market), Manhattan

Park Slope Flea & Smorg Junior: This market is great because it is right in the heart of Park Slope. So anyone walking down 7th Avenue can stop in and look through the vintage and handmade items in the school yard. It is also home to Smorg Jr., a smaller version of the fabulous Smorgasburg food market. 10AM – 5PM, PS 321, 180 Seventh Avenue between 1st and 2nd Street, Brooklyn

Renegade Craft Fair: Wear your walking shoes to Renegade Brooklyn because you are not going to want to miss anything there. This event features handmade craft vendors from New York City and across the country, all carefully selected to participate. I love seeing what people are creating in other parts of the world. 11AM – 6PM, 50 Kent between 11th and 12th Streets, Brooklyn

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Greenpoint / McCarren Park Greenmarket: One of the largest markets in the city, the Greenpoint / McCarren Park is a lovely place to shop for local produce, dairy, fish and other beautiful ingredients that you need for the week. Sunday is also the monthly canning demonstration by Stephen Wade, Greenmarket manager and certified Master Food Preserver. It’s a great market for people watching too. 8AM – 3PM, Union Avenue between Driggs & N 12th Street, Brooklyn
