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!
