I’ve attended their holiday craft market two years in a row and they are now preparing for a spring market that equally combines food and crafts. If you’re a crafty with food, stationary, fabric, junk, whatever, then I suggest you sign up!

Brooklyn Lyceum. 227 4th Avenue in Park Slope. Right atop the R train station at Union Street.
Brooklyn, NY – Expanding into both 4,000 square foot levels of the building – former NYC Public Bath #7 – we announce our heady new creation: The Lyceum Spring Food and Craft Market 2010. Taking place the weekend of May 1 and 2, we are including all manner of “Handmade” to mean both Crafts and Edibles, so dig in.
Our intent with this Market is to highlight the full expansive array of fantastic, artisanal goods available all throughout the Northeast, and get them into the homes, shops, mouths and consciousness of the thousands of discerning NYC patrons who will cross our stoop that Spring weekend, and exit with a healthy armload of gorgeous products they can feel good about. Clothing, clocks, art, gifts, jams, chocolates, cheeses, craft beer. We make it a point to ensure a successful AND fun shopping event. ALSO NEW: Workshops and Demos – Learn to bind a book or grab a basic lesson in chocolate making, among many others. Full Schedule will be included when confirmed.
Over the last year the Brooklyn Lyceum has, so far, put on four highly-attended Craft Markets, as well as the successful inaugural NYC Zine Fest and KingCon: Comic & Animation Fest, where thousands have come together to shop, make crafty connections and enjoy the historical Lyceum space. Our Market Series has enjoyed great success, and we’re excited to bring you another fine event. Cavernous yet cozy ‘vintage’ indoor marketplace. An easily accessible location right on the R train at Union Street. Lunch from local vendors. The Lyceum Cafe now serving Intelligentsia coffee, great service from our spunky baristas.
