Hello GFM fans!

After a month hiatus we are happy to return with full force, preparing for the next food market to be held February 13th!

It will be a Valentines Day Extravaganza of sorts, a celebration of all that is nauseating and lovey dovey, highlighting the holiday with a cascade of heart pins, heart on strings, red-tinted EVERYTHING and a kissing photo booth!

The day will feature a cascade of lovely treats: from aphrodisiac inspired recipes to heart shaped cookies, a photo kissing booth courtesy fellow Greenpointers Color Me Katie and Hyla Skopitz, a secret foodmirer bulletin board to share your food crushes and indulgences, and a heart-hunt: find the heart, win a GFM goodie bag. We are also very pleased to present music  by DJ Jimmy T and a performance by Rifle Recoil @ 3pm. We are also grateful to add to a growing list of food-related artworks by artists Jessie Oleson and Jesse Kuhn who will share a few prints on food and love!

Check the facebook invite here, and join the group if you haven’t already! And spread the love!

You can get the full rundown of what delights await you this upcoming Saturday by clicking here. Check it out!

THIS WEEKEND: Holiday Foodtacular

As if there was not enough shaking this upcoming weekend I have another item to pass along: the Greenpoint Food Market’s Holiday Foodtacular. Here’s the 411 per their press release:

We are OH so proud and excited to present the next Greenpoint Food Market, DECEMBER 19th!!

It’s that time of year when cash flows freely all for the sake of showing some love for our friends and family and there’s certainly no better way to show you care than showering them with delicious foodstuffs to be graciously devoured. We will be decorating the church to show off our giddy festivities and share what each vendor has to offer straight from their kitchen to you.

Greenpoint Food Market will show some love to our supporters by giving away gifts from our neighborhood staples like Cafe Grumpy, t.b.d., Word Bookstore, Cafecito Bogota, Kill Devil Hill, Five Leaves and more! We are beyond grateful for this support and opportunity from our local businesses!!

We are also very proud to present a performance from that piano guy you see playing often at union square! You know, he rolls around a piano in the city and plays the craziest skilled songs with his nimble fingers. Colin Huggins is the man behind the keys and he will be accompanied by tap dancers to blow us away with beats and song!

Also nod that head and tap some toes while listening to some sounds and beats moderated by Greenpoint’s own DJ Jimmy T and his Electric Cowbell. There will records from their new label Electric Cowbell Records available for sale!

To see the rather extensive list of participating vendors, click here. Take my word for it: there’s something for everyone!

As summer wanes and the crisp fall air makes room for more snuggle time we’re preparing for another awesome Saturday at the market. Since it’s launch we’ve had a mix of returning and new vendors and it’s been amazing to sample and take home sweet and spicy caramel, baba ghanouj, coffee and some amazing scallion pancakes.  This week we’ve got folks providing soup, caramel, pickles, jam, empanadas, spreads and baked goods and more all ready to consume and take home, so make sure to come by and sample some delicious treats!

We’d also like to make a humble request, only to ask you to continue spreading the good word about Greenpoint Food Market within your community. We depend on word of mouth and a curious and hungry belly and  appreciate your support thus far.

I have a confession to make: this is something I have long planned to check out but have simply never gotten around to. Methinks this weekend I will have to do something about this. You can learn more about the Greenpoint Food Market by checking out their web site. CAVEAT: do not click the previous link if you are hungry!

Greenpoint Halloween Watch Part II: Eye On 97 Russell Street

Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

Okay. So I have given everyone the good news that 648 Humboldt Street has started construction on this year’s fright fest. Well, I have even more Halloween happiness to impart: their friendly rivals at 97 Russell Street are up to some ghoulish goodness of their own!

Some of you might recall the lady behind this wonderful display got off to a late start last year. This was because she took a trip to Egypt!

97c

She has gotten off to a much earlier start this year…

97d

and it’s looking good!!!

If or when the opportunity arises do swing by and see this wonderful display unfold for yourself. If you happen to catch her working be sure to say “hi” and thank her for making Halloween a lot more fun for all of us. She’s a really sweet lady!

Miss Heather

P.S.: On a Russell-related note, today the Lutheran Church of the Messiah got a make-over courtesy of our friends, The Good Wife.
