16 Brooklyn Holiday Markets For Your Local Shopping Pleasure

About 10 years ago, my mother and I made it an annual Christmas tradition to go to the Young Designers Market in Soho and buy each other earrings.

At the time, that was the only market I knew of in town. Now there is an utter explosion of Holiday Markets, many in Brooklyn, with locally handmade gifts. It goes to show how the local and sustainable movement is happening in full force, especially in our own borough.

Aside from our upcoming Greenpointers Holiday Market, there are tons of other amazing markets happening in Brooklyn in the next few weeks, which makes us very excited in our brains.

About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!

    One more market you may want to consider adding: “Stuff You Should Buy” at PS 321 in Park Slope. It had a really great lineup last year – local, handcrafted, great quality. It’s also very well run. My son attends the school, so we’ve gone a few times, last year they’ve changed the setup – less vendors, much better selection. On par if not better than Brooklyn Lyceum.
    Saturday, December 8, 10 AM – 5 PM, PS 321, 7th Ave between 1st and 2nd streets
