Just when you thought Williamsburg couldn't get any more saturated with fantastic food, stunning clothing and funky accessories, a new market is taking over a long-vacant lot at the corner of North 8th and Driggs. Bulletin Market, a pop-up food and design market that will vend booze, snacks, home decor and jewelry, launches on Saturday, July 9th and will operate from 11am-7pm each Saturday and Sunday through the end of August. In an area already dominated by mega-markets Smorgasburg and the Brooklyn Flea, its operators Alana Branston and Ali Kriegsman—two twenty-somethings who run the website-slash-marketplace Bulletin, promise a different kind of hang, a relaxed, block-party vibe where you can grab a craft beer and play lawn games between wallet-endangering shopping missions.
The grub will be provided by favorite NYC food trucks Luke's Lobster, falafel-slinger Taim, ice cream sandwichery Melt Bakery and more, while independent, emerging designers will sling ceramics, textiles, accessories and beauty products. A DJ will spin tunes, a muralist will art-ify the lot, and picnic tables will be set up to accomodate refueling noshers. Check it out later in July.
