Holly’s HeART by Hand (172 Greenpoint Ave) is a new art & maker learning center and handmade shop. After several years of working the market circuit, owner and long-time Greenpoint resident Holly Fairall is putting down brick and mortar roots here.
The shop carries work from many local artists and fair-trade goods from global craftspeople including a beautiful collection of eco-friendly cards, jewelry, home goods, specialty foods, incense, and paper goods. In addition to all the products being ethically produced and eco-friendly, the prices are unbeatable, with an average cost of $25. If you ever need a unique gift, this is the place to go.

The late great Robin Williams once said “Spring is nature’s way of saying ‘Let’s party!'” So we’re thinking this year’s brutal winter overstayed its welcome as nature’s cue for a massive celebration.
Celebrate Spring with us on Sunday, April 26th, 2015, 1-7PM at the Greenpoint Loft (67 West St, 5th Fl).
We’ll have plenty of Strawberry Gin courtesy of Brooklyn Gin and craft beer by Greenpoint Beer & Ale on the ready for toasting throughout the day. Specially brewed for this market is “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. Continue reading →

Hello Spring, we’re more than ready for you because this Winter took a giant frosty bite out of a lot of the fun. So we’re gearing up to reignite it with our Spring Market on Sunday, April 26, 2015 (1-7PM).

Are you a corporate level business, a distillery, or a business that is based out of the NYC area? Vendor tables are strictly reserved for local independent artisans and small businesses but you may qualify as a sponsor and can submit an application here.
In celebration of International Women’s Day, Little Poland Gallery is hosting, Women for Women Designers Sale Event. The gallery will be presenting an incredible collection of women’s clothing made by a carefully curated selection of European designers, and featuring natural fabrics including beautiful linens and cottons. All of the items are being offered at extremely affordable prices, making this the perfect chance to get started on your spring wardrobe. Plus every woman will leave with a FREE gift with their purchase.
Greetings from Down to Earth Markets, the crew behind the McGolrick Park Farmers Market! We’re open indoors through the winter on Sundays from 11 am to 4 pm. Find us at the Lutheran Church of the Messiah on Russell Street, between Driggs and Nassau Avenues.
If the last market was any indication, this one is going to be just as fun! Really excited about what our talented vendors have in store. Plus where else will you be able to get FREE massages, nails artfully done, personalized haikus, and professional photos all in one beautifully restored pre-war rope factory with views of the Manhattan skyline?
So come join us @Greenpoint Loft (67 West St, 5th Fl) from 1-7PM. It’s the only time you’ll get to have Greenpoint Beer & Ale’s limited edition Chocolate Stout and our Rosemary Gimlet.
While Julia is running around grabbing this and that to make her first market just perfect for you, she asked me to send out the “Friday before the market reminder.” So I’m going to do this post my way (even though I am not sure this is what Julia had in mind.)
This gives me a chance to say hello. Greenpoint, HELLO! I really miss you and wish I could be there on Sunday to give everyone big hugs and stuff way too many dogs into a photo booth shot. (Poor, Brownie (left) got it from D (middle). What a bitch, literally!)
I also wish I could go shopping because the vendors are absolutely fantastic thanks to Yuka’s brilliant curating skills.
When I was organizing the markets, I was always busy screwing in lightbulbs, selling raffles, emptying garbage cans and making sure folks don’t drop beer off the balcony – that I never got to ever shop to my hearts content. And now that I am not the owner any more, I can pick favorites.
Here is my list of MUST SEE vendors for Sunday:
Think of Valentine’s Shopping like an airplane losing cabin pressure and fitting the air mask on your face. Shop for yourself first, then for others. I’m from Queens so any variation on the door knocker or hoop earring is a must for me. These Lockhart Wrks Conical Contrast Earrings make a big statement (like you don’t need any other accessories) and are a great deal at only $30. Wear them up or wear them down, you will get compliments on these gems. Continue reading →
