On a drizzly Saturday morning 20 vendors set up tent at McCarren Park for the first ever Artists & Fleas satellite market, made possible through a collaboration with Open Space Alliance. The Market in McCarren featured a variety of clothing and accesory designs and even included homemade doggy treats. The booths were lined along the bathroom building at the center of the park and attracted passerbys with awkward dance performances and rowdy music. A photo review:
I was also manning a table for North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition, whose India Street Mural Project is coming along with artists planned to be announced tomorrow. The market should be around every Saturday so if you like what you see set up a blanket, tan that pale skin, grab an apple at the Green market near by and support your independent designers.
