No snow seems to be on the way, but you can still revisit the wintry landscape of our Polar Vortex market with these seasonal pics! See a smattering of the photos below — with the superlatives each photo won — and click on over here to see the full album. Special thanks to Outsnapped for this market’s photo booth!
To recap, children, parents, and (of course) dogs all got together to celebrate our amazing local vendors, pose in our photo booth, and share holiday cheer. Mano-a-Mano designed an ice castle while scents of mulling spices wafted in the air and Success Academy led ornament-making workshops upstairs. But for more winter fun, join us on February 10th for our Valentine’s Market! More info to come but until then, potential vendors can apply here!
Have a very happy holiday season, Greenpointers — thanks for making our recent market such a snowy success.

Brooklyn-based JOATA will be jammin’ out the Market from 3pm-3:30pm. JOATA is Puerto Rican indie pop singer/songwriter Jose Oyola. His music blends Caribbean rhythms with hip hop and indie rock, with a fun bilingual flair. And many of his tracks have a definite 60s vibe, feelin’ like a stripped-down solo version of jangly peace-and-love rockers The Zombies or The Byrds.
From 4pm-4:30pm, you’ll get to hear singer songwriter Katy Rea, whose lyrics are both political and poetic. Her folksy crooning with mixed with a fire-y and rich indie pop sound is sure to put you in a nostalgic mood, proving that feminist rock n’ roll was definitely not just a 60’s and 70’s fad, (wo)man.
And to close out the flower power-filled day, The Morning Sea will treat everyone to their bluesy and folksy stylings—sort of a modern take on vintage Bob Dylan—from 5pm-5:30pm.

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!

Dusty Rose (251 Greenpoint Ave) is hosting a show this Thursday night (7-10pm) for local and national artists offering their interpretation on the theme of #Nightboob. 15% of all sales that night will go to Komen Greater NYC, an organization that helps a diverse range of women get help with breast cancer screening, treatment, and more. Just as importantly, there will be private boob portraits painted by the talented Akane Ogura (who was doing face portraits this weekend during Greenpoint Open Studios), live screenprinting, music by Mur and adult beverages.
If for some reason you missed out on the dozens of indie designers we hosted last weekend at our Greenpointers Spring Market (it was glorious!), then this weekend you’d do well to check out the popup night market at Brooklyn Bazaar. Shop from and mingle with some really cool independent local designers while rocking out to some sweet jams and sipping your favorite tipsy bevs. We promise it’ll be more fun than the weekend plans you haven’t made yet.
