Valentine’s Market 2016 Recap + Where to Find Your Favorite Vendors


Greenpointers Valentine’s Market 2016 from manatagami on Vimeo.

We really felt the love this past Sunday at our Valentine’s Market! Like the last (Holiday) market, it was another gorgeous day to hang out in the Greenpoint Loft, chill on the rooftop, eat and drink, and shop local! Thanks to everyone who made it out. Check out our photo booth photos here!

As always, the market was teeming with great energy and it was brought to a whole new level with a visit from cupid, who treated us to a free style rhyme before he went up to face paint on the upstairs mezzanine. And with DJ T*O*N*Y spinning a variety of love jams and hip-hop, a lot of us couldn’t help but to dance. It was a gathering of creative multi-talented people who include those who provide the free fun activities as well as our amazing vendors.

Many people ask us where they can find our vendors after the market so read on after the jump to find out! Continue reading
