On Sunday, December 11th (1-7PM), sleigh bells and palm trees, snowflakes and sunshine come together in the Greenpointers universe because we’re celebrating this holiday season with beachy cheer, at our Holiday Tropical Market!
Discover beautifully crafted high quality gifts from some of the most talented local artisans and makers while enjoying a day full of FREE fun activities, food, mojitos, mulled wine, and seasonal craft beer in the gorgeous Greenpoint Loft.
With soaring wood beams and views of the East River and Manhattan, the Greenpoint Loft is now a private event space that opens to the public during our markets. Restored to its pre-war glory, it was once the home of America’s largest rope manufacturer and is worth a visit for a glimpse of Greenpoint history.

Spongebro Winepants is a special “rosé wine” evening with a menu that will feature 7 hard-to-get Hungarian rosés by the glass. You can also expect pink decorations and typical April foolery and springtime cheer.

Add to it, work on putting together a massive market, and you are going to want to look for some short cuts. But since we’ve set a high bar on creative seasonal cocktails that are served at the markets, we didn’t want to dilute quality either. Continue reading →
