Brooklyn’s Dekalb Market Opening Party

To New Yorkers, spring is a time of celebration. After those bitter cold months spent holed up in a tiny apartment, the prospect of warm days spent outside at the park begin to thaw the frozen hearts of millions of residents. All of a sudden, NYC locals take on a fresh attitude to fit the newly blossomed trees in Central Park. At the start of spring, complaints all but disappear. It is a magical time in the city.

Urban dwellers love a fresh market. Most markets are closed in the winter, and snobby New Yorkers are left cruising the isles of their local chain supermarket or nearing starvation. As warmer days roll in, food snobs and organic lovers rejoice at the many markets located throughout the NYC boroughs.

But one market stands above the rest — enter Brooklyn’s Dekalb Market. The new market opened in 2011 to rave reviews from every major NYC publication. Following a winter hiatus, the market is returning with a Brooklyn bang — one of those outdoor parties that make springtime in the city so great.

From April 7-8, Dekalb Market is kicking off its 2012 season with a mini festival. The two-day party will feature live music, food, a curated garden flea market, and Easter activities.

Dekalb will be open seven-days-a-week until next summer. While the market is food-heavy, you can also find some great craft and vintage vendors that offer one-of-a-kind pieces that will rival the best flea market. Other events planned this season include a lobster boil, roller derby, dance parties, and live music performances.

Don’t you just love spring? For more information, visit the Dekalb Market website.
