Weekend Guide :: 01.08.10

It's going to be a chilly nyc weekend, so indoor markets may be the way to go...here's an update on a few bk markets.

The Brooklyn Flea will move into a new winter indoor space on Jan. 9 in the Williamsburg Savings Bank building at 1 Hanson Place in Fort Greene. It will be open Saturdays and Sundays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., through March 28. After that it will go back to to its two outdoor locations.

The seasonal outdoor Community Market on Fifth Avenue and Fourth Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn (which sells produce and locally made foods), will open an indoor location in the Makers Market, an arts and crafts market at 232 Third Street, Gowanus, Brooklyn. It will operate every Sunday until the spring: from 11-5pm.

Not sure what to do/where to dine this weekend? Eater just put out their top 38 restaurants for 2010. It’s a great roundup including some classics, a few newbies, and we even spotted some of our local faves including frankies, diner and robertas.

And for dessert, stop in for a cupcake at Baked by Melissa. She just opened a new location in Union Square. Her bite-sized morsels are so delish, and in such a sweet size (comparable to a half dollar coin) we're convinced they are calorie free. 7 East 14th Street, 212-255-5526

  1. I wish that I were in NYC to enjoy your advice. Making do with using Karen's beautiful photograph which has inspired me to fill a host of minature glass vases with single blooms
