Spring has arrived, so you know what that means: It’s time to take advantage of New York’s famous open-air markets.One of the best to experience??Dekalb Market’s repurposed shipping containers, which will showcase an array of new treats — from a new beer and wine garden featuring local craft beer, wine and sangria to curated programming that organizers hope will make it a one-stop shop for all New Yorkers.”It’s a Saturday afternoon and you don’t know where to go — you know you can head to the Dekalb Market for live music and a beer,” says Joann Kim-Nunez, a producer of the market, which opens this Saturday. “We want this to be on people’s agendas.”On any given day (the Dekalb Market will be open seven days a week) guests will find all forms of entertainment, such as music, art, movies and shopping.
“It’s really not just a market,” Kim-Nunez says. “It’s a multi-experience venue.”

The Dekalb Market will feature a weekly produce pick-up organized by Plovgh. There will be a weekly theme correlating with the crops available that week as well as monthly programming centered around farming.
