Bee’s Knees, Craft Beer, Henna Tattoos, Massages, The Roving Typist, Face Painting, Nail Art, 60+ Vendors, and more! Spring Market (4/17)
We are busy bees getting ready for our upcoming Spring Market on Sunday, April 17th (1-7PM) and can’t wait to strip off a few layers of winter bitterness to take in the sweet nectar of Greenpoint life in this season, when cherry trees are bursting with blooms, daffodils and tulips start to pop out of sidewalk gardens, and we spend more time at the park or in backyard beer gardens.
Did you know that the Greenpoint Loft was once the home of the largest rope manufacturer in the U.S.? It has been beautifully restored to its pre-war glory and we can’t wait to see it come alive with old-timey tunes, FREE fun activities, food & refreshments, music, and epic local shopping.
We are throwing it back to the prohibition-era when “Bee’s Knees” was slang for the best cuz we’ll be serving up the best honey sweetened cocktail, courtesy of Brooklyn Gin. Thanks to Greenpoint Beer & Ale there will also be two choices delicious craft beer to get your buzz on: “Milk and Honey” is an American blonde ale brewed with chamomile, milk sugar and wildflower honey. “Jamaica Bay Brett IPA,” is a wild yeast fermented American IPA. Tropical and peachy with orange pith notes.
Our friends at Cafe Grumpy will be providing coffee and there will be a large assortment of yummy savory and sweet treats by some talented chefs and local food establishments.
As always, we will have a number of FREE fun activities upstairs on the mezzanine!
We will be capturing fun shots of our guests against a Honeycomb and Golden Blooms photo booth background inspired the poster designed by one of our vendors Llubav.
Miss V will be back again for Henna Tattoos.
A Big Silly Guy will be joining us again for Face Painting and if we’re lucky, he’ll freestyle rhyme and float around as an adorable busy bee!
