Photo: Brooklyn Night Bazaar NYC's popular Brooklyn Night Bazaar is coming to Greenpoint! The founders of the Asian-style night market are currently revamping the inside of a 23,000-square-foot former bakery into a fun-filled new space, and are hoping to launch on November 1st of this year. Once open, the pop-up market will operate on Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm-midnight and feature dozens of local vendors offering tasty nibbles and vintage/handmade goods as well as activities like miniature golf, table tennis and rock climbing.
Brooklyn Night Bazaar was founded by Aaron Broudo and Belvy Klein in 2011, and has been calling a Williamsburg warehouse its home for the past two years. Now, the eclectic market (think Smorgasburg/Brooklyn Flea, but, you know, at night) is moving into a 23,000 sq. ft. space between Meserole and Norman Avenues on Banker Street in Greenpoint. The warehouse was formerly occupied by Angel Bakery before they decided to relocate to Jersey. The bazaar will likely bring a lot of extra foot traffic to the relatively quiet street, which many area residents use as a shortcut between Greenpoint and Williamsburg.
Fans of the bazaar and similar outfits like the Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg will be pleased to see many of the same food vendors pop up at the new market. According to Broudo, The Lobster Joint, Rosamunde Sausage Grill, Arancini Bros., Briskettown, Morris Grilled Cheese, Oaxaca, the Tiffin Room, the Jam Stand, and Ample Hills have been confirmed and Roberta’s Pizza, Luke’s Lobster, Van Leeuwen ice cream, Pok Pok NY and Cafe Grumpy might also join in.
After they’re nice and full, patrons will also be able to peruse clothing, jewelry, art and home goods vendors and enjoy activities like mini golf, rock climbing, table tennis, pétanque and even partake in a Chinese tea ceremony.
