Since moving to NYC, I’ve discovered a new favorite way to spend my Saturdays: the market. Farmer’s markets, craft markets, fine food markets–you name it, I’m in there like swimwear. Growing up in a small rural town, there were few chance to really hit up markets the way NYC does them: big, well-curated, local. A dream, really.
The gorgeous weather on Saturday presented the perfect (and probably final) opportunity to put on one of my favorite casual looks (I actually might spend 24/7 in these burgundy pants if it was socially acceptable) and head to Brooklyn for an amazing food fair, Smorgasburg, and the Renegade Craft market with a few girlfriends. It felt especially poignant to be on the East River, supporting so many local businesses only weeks after Hurricane Sandy.
I was able to pick up a pair of Dino earrings I’ve had my eye on (yes, you read that right!), plus a few Christmas gifts and some homemade jam–for you NYC gals, I urge you to try Anarchy in a Jar! Their strawberry balsamic jam is out-of-this-world amazing.
How cute is this bow ring one of my friends picked up?
What’s your favorite way to spend your treasured Saturday afternoons?
