Five times a year, on the northern tip of Brooklyn, a beautifully restored 19th century warehouse bustles with activity as artisans, crafters, chefs, and other makers converge to sell goods and food.
Greenpointers’ Markets are held seasonally at Greenpoint Loft. This remarkable space is one of the last remnants of Greenpoint’s industrial heritage and was once the site of America’s largest maritime rope manufacturer. Sunlit with soaring wood-beamed ceilings and roof access to stunning views of the East River and Manhattan skyline, it is now a venue for private events and opens to the public for the Greenpointers’ Markets
Highly curated vendors sell stuff of the sustainable, organic, recycled/upcycled/eco-friendly variety to create a unique shopping experience. Upstairs, on the mezzanine, you will find a ton of FREE fun activities.
This Sunday, April 26th, 2015, 1-7PM at the Greenpoint Loft (67 West St, 5th Fl), Greenpointers celebrates Spring with an “Electric Wildflower Garden Party” themed Market and has lined up 60+ vendors and FREE fun activities including Face Painting by painter-illustrator Giselle Nuñez, personalized haikus by The Haiku Guys, Nail Art by @Peenk, massages by Human@Ease, and a photo booth with a hand drawn Electric Wildflower Garden by designer Libby VanderPloeg!
Specially brewed for this occasion, local brewery Greenpoint Beer & Ale is providing “Rabbit Island,” a modern New Zealand-inspired pilsner with tropical fruit notes and white grape. It will be served alongside “Fisticuffs,” a malty, creamy, easy day-drinking English dark mild with hints of cocoa and bread crust. In addition, there will be a refreshing Spring Market signature cocktail, The Wild Strawberry, courtesy of Brooklyn Gin!
Brooklyn Gin will be present to talk about their artfully crafted gin, small-batch distilling, and will give out free tastings. Plus, Enterprise CarShare will be giving out membership discounts.
