Greenpoint Food Market Launches Sept 12th

This seems interesting…
The Greenpoint Food Market is Launching this Saturday, September 12th.

I’m excited for the beer-poached bratwurst. I would love a Polish market, but I don’t think that’s what we are looking at. Things seem a bit artisinal, but if it takes art to feed me good food, then so be it.

GFM started as a nagging daydream about a market exclusively serving food lovingly produced by locals. It is a response to a burgeoning culinary movement where DIY, artisanal, and traditional methods of food-making is short of becoming normalized in Brooklyn and beyond. GFM hopes to be a support system for explorative amateur chefs and gourmands wishing to share their goods with the community and maybe even make a buck or two along the way. GFM is all about community involvement and gastronomical gratification, bringing folks together through food appreciation.

The market will be an all-encompassing sensory experience where visitors can walk from table to table sampling the goods while listening to live music and marveling at the artwork installed throughout the space, all referencing food. The convergence of art and food will not only instill potential chaos in a cozy space but also foster a unique experience utilizing all senses for savory consumption.

The Market is located across the street from McGolrick Park inside the Church of Messiah located at 129 Russell Street between Nassau and Driggs Ave in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
