Queens-Made Market

New kid on the block, Queens-Made Market launches this weekend. Here’s what they’re all about:

Our mission is to establish and operate a community-supported arts & crafts market that provides an eclectic alternative to the traditional retail and shopping experience, where local artists, artisans and crafters bring their products for a unique show-and-sell experience in a creative and friendly environment for all.

The market takes place Saturday & Sunday, May 5 & 6 from noon to 5pm at Okabaloo #FunArtFaktory, 35-52 32nd Street (Ground FL) in LIC.
