Which street markets in New York are worth visiting this fall?
Grand Bazaar is New York City’s oldest, largest and most diverse weekly shopping market. A lot of interesting events await you in September and October, as the organizers report Grand Bazaar NYC.
Every Sunday, the market provides a marketplace for local independent artists, designers, artisans, vintage and antique dealers, and entrepreneurs. You should definitely add events to your Google calendar so you don’t miss out on this fall’s top pop art events.
The New York Grand Bazaar (originally GreenFlea Market) was opened by a group of parents as a simple yard sale to raise funds for their children’s schools around 1979, making it the oldest (flea) market in New York City.
Today, it is the only purpose-driven marketplace that donates 100% of its profits to four public schools, funding arts, after-school education and classroom essentials for over 2,000 children.
