Happy Halloween, Greenpointers! What better way to celebrate the holiday than by revisiting Sunday’s Samhain Fall Market with these sweet and spooky photos? We had a blast spotlighting local vendors new and old, reading tarot cards, and — of course — celebrating Samhain, which starts tonight and brings forth the “darker half” of the year when ghouls will roam and spirits will descend.
This season’s market was a hit thanks to the thousands of locals who turned out and our nearly 70 vendors — from clay artisans and dressmakers to soap sellers and jewelers — who delighted us with their craft and charm. And when we weren’t busy shopping, we were certainly imbibing Hot Mulled Cider with Uncle T Spices Pumpkin Spice Blend and Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, a classic 12oz of Greenpoint Beer & Ale craft beer, or a cup of BABE Grigio wine.
Meanwhile, Brooklyn Paranormal Society spooked us with psychic readings, spirit drawings, and ghost hunting, and Pink Slater kept the jams going as they greeted incoming attendees. But if you really want to relive the festive fun, take a look at the paranormal pictures below! Enjoy your Halloween, nabes, and go trick or treat safely — then, after your engorge on king-sized candy, get ready for our next market: our winter spectacular, the biggest market of the year, on December 2 back at the Greenpoint Loft!
Ghouls and Goblins: our Samhain Fall Market is almost here! End your Halloweekend at the stunning Greenpoint Loft (67 West Street) on October 28 from 1–7 PM for an afternoon of spooky and sweet tricks and treats. RSVP here, and don’t miss out — it’s going to be Boo!-tee-ful.
It’s going to be a fun-filled Sunday packed with ghost hunting, hot mulled cider, henna tattoos, and — of course — our signature themed photo booth, this year with a Samhain-inspired art installation including a Tree of Life, skulls, and more.

This Sunday at our Fall Market (10/1) at the Greenpoint Loft from 1-7pm, we will have two non-shopping tables you should definitely swing by. One is for the Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund, and the other is for the Greenpoint Hunger Program. Here’s a little about each of these important causes:
Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund The devastating effects of hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico are still unfolding, but one thing is certain—the island’s most vulnerable communities are likely to be pummeled the hardest and face the longest road to recovery. Low-income communities of color often face the worst destruction and slowest recovery and have fewer resources to safeguard homes, vehicles, and other property. When the winds die down and the floods recede, these communities are often forgotten by reconstruction efforts, and underserved by insurance companies. The Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund will be housed at the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD). One hundred percent of monies raised will be used to support immediate relief, recovery, and equitable rebuilding in Puerto Rico for the communities hit hardest by the storm. The Fund is governed by organizations like Puerto Rico-based Taller Salud, the G8 of Caño Martín Peña, and other local, grassroots organizations.
The Greenpoint Hunger Program If you have not heard from your neighbors about the Soup Kitchen + Food Pantry of the Greenpoint Reformed Church’s Hunger Program, the volunteer-based organization is a vital part of Greenpoint, for those in need. The kitchen serves more than 800 hungry people every month in the North Brooklyn Community and beyond.On Wednesday evenings, they serve a delicious community dinner. On Thursdays, they distribute groceries from the food pantry. According to the Church, “It costs about $5,000 per week to host the meal and keep food pantry running,” so they need your monetary and volunteer support. Stop by their table to find out more about donating your time or dollars.
This weekend Greenpoint’s got a ton of unique popup shopping destinations to kick off the Fall season. Whether you’re looking for the perfect handmade ceramic vessel for your airplant collection, a creepy taxidermy art piece or a vintage neon kimono, you’re in luck!
