It was yet another amazing day at Greenpoint Food Market, we certainly felt a resurgence of vibrant energy on Saturday, we had an amazing crowd of curious and hungry visitors and we are grateful for your support and cravings for all things scrumptious. We had one lucky visitor win a copy of Forking Fantastic!, a kickass cookbook (there will be more to come) and the sampling of our gastronomical samplings didn’t end. Here’s a recap of the day:
La Tia Faby’s empanadas were simply out of this world. The spinach and mushroom empanadas were plump and chewy, its shape rounded with a pinch down the center, resembling the most perfect toosh.
Sweetie Pies Brooklyn provided both sweet and savory and a magical combination of the two like the pear jalapeno mini pies, which are to die for.
Not only does Rugebites rule in the world of hummus and baba ganouj, their cabbage pirojki are moist and refreshing, think stuffed cabbage but sweeter, and might we say, better!
By the Hearth’s allergy free baked goods were a charm, especially the crumble apple pie.
Pumpkin & Honeybunny have been loyal vendors here at GFM and we can never get enough ginger soda and quirky vintage printed cards. Thank you!
Adorable Pretzel’s massive sweet knots were available by the pair, their soft and chewy insides were intensely comforting, especially when dipped with some local honey!
Anarchy in a Jar returns with a jamtastic bang, the plum nugget preserves are our favorite.
Token Confections have received undivided support for there caramels with spicy peanuts and pumpkin incorporated into these inexplicably soft delicacies, what’s there not to love?
Annie & Jonna’s chimichurri sauce were herby and delicious and their squash butter would be perfect for a fall celebratory feast!
These squirmy buggy bundle of gnocchis by Chris are frozen and ready to boil and eat! Made in a humble home in Brooklyn!
Woodside Bakehouse makes amazing vegan granola bars that are sweet and chewy, and healthy!
Taza Chocolate is our official chocolate purveyor at GFM, and we will never get enough of their chili infused bars!
The Soup Spoon is always the first to sell out, which should tell her something, ahem! We want more!
And lastly, we were graced by an unplugged performance by the one and only John Hovorka.
We should mention that GFM is considering turning into a monthly market, but as we do suffering from indecisions we’d love to your feedback. Would you like to see us weekly or is that too much like seeing your in-laws to often and would rather grace us with your presence monthly? You’re likely to see us again THIS SATURDAY which we’ll confirm by Wednesday. If you’d like to sign up as a vendor please shoot us an email and PLEASE CONTINUE TO SPREAD THE GOOD WORD about GFM. It couldn’t possibly exist without you.
Also, if you’re a keen unplugged performer, we’d love to have you play for us.
