Weekend Guide :: Holiday Markets
New Amsterdam Market is back with wintermarket, this Sunday December 20th. Modeled on Public Markets of the past, New Amsterdam is meant to evoke Les Halles of Paris and present local vendors of all sorts: butchers, vineyards, cheese mongers, produce stalls and more. New Amsterdam will fill up your table and under your tree. Don’t miss the endless merchant in the South Street Seaport from 11am to 4pm.
There is also the Greenpoint Food Market with their “Holiday Foodtacular” this Saturday, December 19th. They are offering onsite gift wrapping, art, and live music. The vendor list looks delicious. See for yourself here, and visit them from noon to 5pm at the Church of Messiah, 129 Russell Street in Brooklyn.
Last but not least is the Brooklyn Lyceum Craft Market. This one runs both the 19th and 20th on 4th Avenue between Union and President Streets in Park Slope. With many last minute gifts—foodie and craft alike—we couldn’t even count up the number of vendors without losing track! Don’t miss the opportunity for new introductions. The BLCM runs from 11am to 7pm both days.
