Albee Square is getting a farmers market! Run by Bensidoun, a French company that runs markets in Paris, Chicago and New York, it’ll debut this Saturday and then run weekly on Thursdays from 10 am to 4 pm and Saturdays from 11 am to 5 pm. The market will feature around 15 vendors selling food, produce, and handmade goods. Here are the vendors lined up so far, according to the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership:
Highlights include Dutchess County’s Migliorelli Farm, selling locally grown produce; Tierra Farm, selling dried fruits and nuts; Fort Greene’s Le Petit Bakery, selling breads and baked goods; and Robibero Family Vineyards, selling Hudson Valley wine. Other vendors signed up for the first season include Amelia’s Florist, Original Delancey Street Peanut Company, Meredith’s Bread, Anthis Greek Food, Yona’s Gourmet Delights, High Mountain Foods, Vesco Food, Café Mavi Express, and Provence en Boite.
At the end of November, the market will take on a holiday theme. For opening day this Saturday, chef Tanya Tracy will hold a demonstration on making gourmet dips and spreads and two Brooklyn artists will be performing throughout the day.
