Last week we rounded up some of the best holiday craft markets in Brooklyn this year; today we’re bringing you news about a market from our friends at Greenpointers that may help you shake off this winter chill. On Sunday, from 1-7pm, sleigh bells and palm trees, snowflakes and sunshine come together in the Greenpointers universe because they’re celebrating this holiday season with beachy cheer, at the Holiday Tropical Market.
Discover beautifully crafted high quality gifts from some of the most talented local artisans and makers while enjoying a day full of FREE fun activities, food, mojitos, mulled wine, and seasonal craft beer in the gorgeous Greenpoint Loft at 67 West St., 5th floor.
With soaring wood beams and views of the East River and Manhattan, the Greenpoint Loft is now a private event space that opens to the public during Greenpointers’ markets. Restored to its pre-war glory, it was once the home of America’s largest rope manufacturer and is worth a visit for a glimpse of Greenpoint history.
RSVP here. Be transported to breezy warm island life while sipping on refreshing mojitos made with Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum. Or warm up with Hungarian Mulled Wine brought to you by Crimson and Clove spices and Palinkerie. Thanks to Greenpoint Beer & Ale, there will also be locally brewed small batch seasonal craft beer available!
As always, Greenpointers will have a number of FREE fun activities upstairs on the mezzanine!
Remember the super cool Urban Frightfest Photo Booth from the last market? Artist Colleen Blackard is once again painting a mural to bring festive holiday tropical vibes to Greenpoint and Ben Shirai will be capturing photos.
