Gowanus Holiday Flea Market

Gowanus Dredgers Boathouse | Gowanus

Take part in new Gowanus Holiday Flea Market at the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club Boathouse, right on the canal at 2nd Street, each Saturday leading up to Christmas.

The events, on Dec. 1, 8, 15, 22, will celebrate and promote talent from Brooklyn and NYC - and feature fresh food and drink - run by students and local culinary talent. Not only will you shop, eat and drink, but you'll do good, too because you're supporting the Gowanus Dredgers, saving the canal, and Seeds in the Middle, empowering all children to create healthier places to live.

All ages are welcome  with face-painting for kids and other activities on Dec. 1, by Murrow High School students. Stay for cupcake or cookie-decorating classes. For the adlults, local distillers will be in attendance.

 

Please join the Facebook event here and invite friends. It takes a village to save the world!

 

Small works from a group of 27 Gowanus artists, many who have been inspired by the canal, will also be for sale for less than $150 each.

Some of the profits from the market will support the Gowanus Dredgers public canoeing programs, and Seeds in the Middle, empowering underserved students to create healthy places to live, like running Hip2B Healthy Markets.

 

The Gowanus Holiday Flea Market will kick off this weekend and run Dec. 1, 8, 15, 22
