Orange hues & earthy rust tones, spicy & sweet flavors, warm cocktails & cold seasonal ales, cool Autumn days & toasty nights… ’tis the season to cozy up and get inspired by unlikely pairs. That’s why for our Fall Market on Sunday, October 25th, we’re excited to see the beautiful Greenpoint Loft come alive with a Foliage & Foragers themed day filled with FREE activities, refreshments, epic local shopping, live music, and most importantly the good people of Greenpoint!
Remember the last (summer) market? The Watermelon Soju set a high bar for cocktails that follow so we’ve been testing out some recipes for the perfect Fall libations. We discovered that Mike’s Hot Honey combined with Sailor Jerry’s rum make a delicious Spicy Buttered Rum cocktail. We’ll be serving it up toasty warm.
If heat isn’t your flavor, we have some cold brews lined up thanks to our friends at Greenpoint Beer & Ale. A burly, dark red IPA “Flannel Shirt” will be present alongside “Oui, oui!,” a fruit super saison with pear and pineapple notes for your drinking pleasure.
Our multi-talented favorite gentle giant, Roger (aka A Big Silly Guy) will be joining us armed with his Face Painting skills to get you a head start on Halloween and prepare you before you strike a pose at our Photo Booth station by photographer Ben Shirai and designer Libby VanderPloeg, who is hand-drawing colorful leafage & furry friends for the backdrop.
After you practice being present, peer into your future with yoga instructor Lindsay Myers, who will read Tarot Cards.
In addition to your face, your nails can be your blank canvas because Peenk can work some Nail Art magic.
On music, we’re excited to haveLaura & Greg join us again to belt out some sweet melodies from their recently released record Forever for Sure.
As always, we have some fabulous vendors lined up who will be selling locally crafted items. Stay tuned for a preview next week. (And if you’re interested in applying, fill out this form and hit us up at markets@Greenpointers.com)
