Oh, I’m so superpsyched! My favorite restaurant, Red Bamboo Brooklyn, has just announced that it is launching a seasonal market this Sunday, November 19. The market, called Handmade Brooklyn, will be held in the restaurant’s garden and feature vegetarian crafts (leather is prohibited) made by local artisans. This is just another reason to enjoy a lazy Sunday afternoon in superhip Fort Greene, parent of the best block in NYC.
Crafty vegans interested in participating as vendors should contact Kaitlyn at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. There is a $50 vendors fee, but this includes a free lunch special.
