OUTDOOR MARKETS ABOUND IN THE BIG APPLE

Celebrate the summer with a shopping trip to New York City’s numerous outdoor markets and bazaars

New York City shopping experiences takes to the streets this summer with a variety of unique outdoor markets. Throughout the city, outdoor flea markets offer just about everything from exquisite antiques and collectibles to costume jewelry and vintage clothing, while greenmarkets provide a great selection of fresh produce, pastries, flowers, and other goodies. Here’s the scoop on some of the best bazaars in the Big Apple.


Surprises at Every Corner
You’ll never know what you’ll find when you comb through the tables of New York City’s famous flea markets. The Annex Antiques Fair and Flea Market (Corner of 6th Ave. and W. 26th St., 212-243-5343, www.annexantiques.com ) enjoys a loyal following of designers, artists, bargain hunters, celebrities, and local residents on the hunt for hidden treasures. In business for nearly 30 years, this New York City institution carries a wide variety of items with nearly 150 vendors selling their wares on a typical day. Highlights include African art pieces, vintage clothing, accessories and antique linens.

Also available are signs, lamps, tiles, door knobs, all of which were acquired from old demolished civic buildings, churches and theaters. Open Saturday and Sunday, sunrise to sunset.

Since 1994, the Malcolm Shabazz Harlem Market (102 W. 116th St., 212-662-2200) has consistently attracted a crowd with nearly 100 merchants and an array of unique products from all over the world. A stroll though this popular community destination reveals a wide range of traditional African arts and crafts such as handmade wooden figurines, decorative masks, and colorful textiles. Also, check out the handcrafted jewelry, specialty belt buckles, and T-shirts, all which make perfect presents or souvenirs. The hours of operation through the year are Spring 10am-8:30pm, Summer 10am-9pm, Fall 10am-8pm and Winter 10am-7pm.

A relative newcomer to the New York City shopping scene, the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market (W. 39th St. and Ninth Ave., 212-243-5343, www.hellskitchenfleamarket.com ) is a place where up-and-coming designers, artists, and enthusiastic entrepreneurs set up shop every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm. Expect an eclectic assortment of original merchandise such as unique chess sets and clocks and one-of-a-kind bedding.

Green Flea, Inc. (212-239-3025, www.greenfleamarkets.com ) gives shoppers two Manhattan markets to explore, one in Greenwich Village (Greenwich Ave. and Charles St., open Sat. 11am-7pm) and the other on the Upper West Side (Columbus Ave. btwn. 76th and 77th Sts., open Sun. 10am-5:30pm Nov.-Mar. and 10am-6pm Apr.-Oct.).

Merchandise at both spots change with the season and might include fashion accessories, fragrant sachets, and stunning Chinese furniture. Proceeds from both markets go towards enrichment opportunities for New York City public school students.


Farm Fresh

Before heading to the picnic in the park why not pick up some fresh produce? Thanks to Greenmarket (citywide, 212-788-7476, www.cenyc.org ), a program of the Council on the Environment of New York City, that promotes regional agriculture, New Yorkers and visitors will find an ample supply of fresh fish, fruits, vegetables, meats, and other edibles. The 47 markets in 33 locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island serve more than 250,000 customers each week during peak season.

By far the largest and most famous of these markets is the Union Square Greenmarket Farmers Market, which operates four times a week: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday 8am-6pm year-round. Suppliers from around the region showcase the fruits of their labor: honey, preserves, and maple syrup; perfect gourmet pretzels; while fans of all things organic can stock up on rich varieties of tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers.

Some other Greenmarket Manhattan locations include Rockefeller Center at Rockefeller Plaza and 50th Street on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in October and on the Upper West Side at West 97th Street and Columbus Avenue on Thursdays 8am-5pm and Sundays 8am-6pm year-round.

When in Brooklyn, plan a picnic at Prospect Park and pick up everything you need at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket Farmers Market. Located at the intersection of Flatbush Avenue, Eastern Parkway, and Prospect Park West, the second largest open-air greenmarket in New York City is open every Saturday 8am-4pm. Fill up on local seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh fish, free-range meat and poultry, honey, jam, and an assortment of dairy products.

The Bronx has three Greenmarket locations to choose from including Poe Park and Yankee Stadium on Tuesdays from July through November and south of Lincoln Hospital at 148th and Morris Streets. In Queens, the bustling neighborhood of Jackson Heights is home to a Sunday Greenmarket on 34th Avenue between 77th and 78th Streets 8am-3pm, May through November. On Staten Island, patrons of the Greenmarket in the St. George Boro Hall Parking Lot have their pick of local and seasonal fruits and vegetables every Saturday.

In July, Greenmarket will open eight new locations including Murray Hill in Manhattan, Astoria and Long Island City in Queens, and Historic Richmond Town (441 Clarke Ave., 718-351- 1611, www.historicrichmondtown.org ) on Staten Island.

There are a number of independent markets in New York City that are also worth a visit. Before hitting the beach in Brooklyn, spend some time browsing the Coney Island Farmers Market (W. 16th St. and Surf Ave. at Key Span Stadium Plaza), which welcomes visitors from July 10 through October 31. Here you’ll find the perfect ingredients for a beachside lunch.

The New York Botanical Garden (Bronx River Pkwy. and Fordham Rd., 718-817-8700, www.nybg.org ) offers an open-air, seasonal farmers’ market on its grounds. Located on Tulip Tree Allée, the market offers fresh produce, baked goods, and wines from Hudson Valley farmers, as well as fun cooking demonstrations Wednesday 10am-3pm June-October.

In bustling Chinatown ( www.explorechinatown. com ), vendor stalls overflow with fresh seafood and authentic Asian ingredients like bok choy, lotus root, taro, and durian. This popular downtown destination, which has the largest population of Chinese outside China, offers an authentic, lively shopping experience.
