Weekend Market Picks September 7 & 8, 2013: Plus My Mom!

I am reposting a video that I made with my mom earlier this year. She isn’t doing so well, and I am currently in San Diego to help my sisters take care of her. Hopefully things will settle down soon, but it’s still a bit of a tough yet sentimental time for us. So I thought I’d share this video again because my mom really is my style inspiration.

Please go to a market on my behalf and let me know what you find there!

Last week, I wrote about a cluster of markets in Brooklyn. This week, look for the identifying several markets in the Lower East Side area.

Saturday, September 7, 2013

Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket: It’s time for a shout out for this flagship farmers market in Brooklyn! I walked through the plaza recently on Friday. It’s a splendid plaza, but the market truly puts the “grand” into Grand Army. The market features over 30 wonderful regional farmers and food vendors. I have also found that this particular market has more than its fare share of adorable neighborhood dogs. 8AM – 4PM, Prospect Park West & Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn

Hester Street Fair:  The Hester Street Fair is part of our LES cluster of markets this week. I am always impressed with the mix and the balance the market achieves among artisan, flea and food vendors. I also love the music wafting under the tall trees, the ping pong game in the middle of the market, and the sociable picnic tables towards the back. 10AM – 6PM, Hester Street at Essex, Manhattan

Morningside Park Down To Earth Market: As I always say, Down To Earth Markets offer a wonderful variety of foods beyond produce and baked goods, although they do have beautiful produce and baked goods. This is one of their larger markets, where you can also find pickles, chutney, frozen pops, chocolate, coffee, nuts and much more! 9AM – 5PM, 110th St. & Manhattan Ave, Manhattan

Saturday & Sunday, September 7 & 8, 2013

Essex Street Market: The Essex Street Market is filled with many of the things you need or want: meats, fish, cheese, fresh bread, handmade chocolates, international groceries, Japanese and Italian specialties and prepared foods. You can also find clothes, get a haircut at the barber, and support the Lower East Side Girls Club by shopping in their tiendita — all inside this one market. 8AM – 7PM Saturday / 10AM – 6PM Sunday, 120 Essex Street at Delancey, Manhattan

Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit:  This weekend is the second and final weekend for the WSOAE in 2103. Don’t miss this chance to meet some extremely talented painters, photographers, sculptors and craft artisans on the sidewalks of Greenwich Village. Just like their predecessors were when this event first started in 1931. 12PM – 6PM, University Pl. between East 12th and West 3rd St., Manhattan

Sunday, September 8, 2013

LES Flea: More like a neighborhood yard sale, the LES Flea is Hester Street Fair’s community-focused classic flea. Swing by to sift through your neighbor’s stuff and go home with new treasures. Then next week, bring all the old stuff you have to get rid of to make room for your new stuff! 11am-5pm Hester Street at Essex, Manhattan

Enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend. I love this time when summer starts feeling like fall!
