Scour the unique wares of independent designers at this carefully curated, year-round bazaar. It’s taking the old home of the Market NYC (now located in the Meatpacking District) inside a 4,000-square-foot gymnasium behind St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. Cofounders Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori, who previously worked together at conceptual design store Droog, aim to uphold the Market’s goal of promoting true independent talent by showcasing only local vendors who create handmade products. Among the 60 total vendors, 30 permanent booths are present each week, while the rest rotate on a bimonthly basis. Altogether, they offer men’s and women’s clothing ($40–$700), jewelry ($25–$600) and housewares ($50–$120). The mix includes eco-friendly picks from Kim Lyons’s astronomy-inspired jewelry, such as mixed-metal rings ($220); and Naturevsfuture’s sustainable, sculptural clothes, including wool draped-collar tunic dresses ($248). You’ll also find creatively repurposed products, such as Mrs Jermyn teddy bears crafted from men’s button-down shirts ($75) and House of Reboot “zero-waste” tweed cowl-neck hoodies ($135), whose leftover scraps are incorporated into other garments in the line.
