Find incredible mementos from your favorite shows at the Broadway Cares Flea Market

This weekend is a tough one for me. There are so many fabulous market events that I don’t even know where to go! I’m sure I’ll figure out my route, but in case I have to miss anything, please share your pictures from whichever market you end up visiting! Thanks! Tag #MarketsNYC for me, and I’ll repost for you!

Also, I need to give a big shout out to my friends at the skint for the heads up on several of these events. If you don’t get the skint newsletter, go sign up now. It is essential.

Weekend Market Picks

Saturday, September 24, 2016

104th Street Block Association Yard Sale: This is the 27th anniversary of this neighborhood sale, where neighbors and vendors sell every sort of household item you can imagine. 10AM – 5PM, 104th Street between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive, Manhattan

Brooklyn Flea Record Fair: Vinyl has been making a comeback, and the Brooklyn Flea brings together dozens of labels, record shops, and collectors  together for an amazing day of flipping through crates and crates of record albums. 10AM – 5PM, East River State Park, Brooklyn

London Terrace Street Fair: I look forward to this event every year! It’s a combination yard sale among neighbors, and cool vintage dealers. Plus, the street is so pretty. This weekend marks the 24th anniversary of this event! I advise getting there early, and if you like something, buy it. I hesitated on a pair of perfect Frye boots for $20, and someone snatched them away. Still sad. 10AM – 5PM, 24th Street between 9th & 10th Avenue, Manhattan

Sunnyside Greenmarket: One of the largest greenmarkets in Queens, Sunnyside features an enticing collection of year-round vendors of local and regional produce, proteins, dairy, and baked goods. During the growing season, you can meet additional farmers, including several from the New Farmer Development Program, with the freshest local produce. 8AM – 3PM, Skillman Avenue between 42nd & 43rd Streets, Queens

Saturday & Sunday, September 24 & 25, 2016

Hell’s Kitchen Flea & Mosaic Artist Demo: In addition to the regular fare of vintage and flea market treasures, on Sunday the HKFM is hosting a wonderful artist from the neighborhood, Judy Negron. Ms. Negron will be demonstrating her process at the market from 12PM – 2PM. She recently won a fine arts grant from the Hell’s Kitchen Foundation in support of local artists. 9AM – 5PM, 39th Street at 9th Avenue, Manhattan  

Sunday, September 25, 2016

Artisan Jewelry Bazaar at the Grand Bazaar NYC: Finally – a market event bringing together an amazing collection of jewelry vendors! Do not miss this exciting event at the Grand Bazaar, and shop from the flea, vintage, and local food vendors at this new market as well! 10AM – 5:30PM, 77th Street at Columbus Avenue, Manhattan

Atlantic Antic: Purported to be New York’s biggest street festival, and I believe it, the Antic features 500 vendors of food, artisan goods, street fair items, and so much more. Local shops and restaurants along Atlantic Avenue extend their businesses out into the streets for the day. Go hungry, and wear comfy shoes because you’ll be doing a lot of strolling! 12PM – 6PM, Hicks Street to Fourth Avenue, Brooklyn

Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS Flea Market & Grand Auction: One of my favorite market events of the year! This is the time when fabled Broadway theaters open their wings, closets, and drawers and sell off props, costumes, memorabilia, costume and stage designs, and much much more. Meet your favorite Broadway stars and bid on incredible on-stage experiences! 10AM – 7PM, Shubert Alley, West 44th & 45th Streets. Manhattan

Flatbush Frollic: This year marks the 41st year for this street festival with food, dance, music, artisan vendors, pizza, beer, and more. The craft vendors are all local, “nothing mass produced or imported.” We love that. 11AM – 6PM, Cortelyou Road between Ocean Avenue and Coney Island Avenue, Brooklyn

Lower East Side Pickle Day: If you love pickles more than life, you must get yourself down to this street fair. Even if you don’t love pickles quite that much, it’s a great day of strolling, nibbling, pickling, and even a pickle feature film12PM – 5PM, Orchard Street between Delancey and Houston, Manhattan
