Brooklyn Night Bazaar

Okay kids, I just have to share what my family and I did this evening which was a ton of fun... We made the trek through the Holland Tunnel, weaved our way through the crowded streets of Chinatown, crossed over the Manhattan Bridge into the Borough of Brooklyn.  Specifically to the Dekalb Market for Brooklyn Night Bazaar.  What a wonderful time!

Brooklyn just in general has always had a great vibe, but here you have dozen of diverse vendors all selling their wares.  From clothing, to jewelry, to food and art, it was an assortment of great shops, most of which were set up in re-purposed shipping containers.  Music was alive and pumping with a live performance from Yacht while the beer and wine gardens were flowing freely as well... It's ALL good!

I just wanted to highlight some of the great things there...  First off was this super delicious kimchi from Arirang Kimchi... Yeah, if you follow me on Twitter you know I've got a bit of an obsession with Korean food, but this stuff was actually quite good.  They had a Vegan and Traditional version, and I'm a die hard traditionalist when it comes to things like food, so bring on the salted shrimp and fish sauce!... So super yummy!

Next we started perusing all the super creative artisan's stalls... We found one that was so interesting and unique, my husband walked away with a purchase... He got the coolest ring, which was basically a chunk of brass mounted on a simple band.  It's a hefty ring, but so well made...  Sarustar is a thoughtful and really well priced jewelry line.  When I go back I think I'm going to be picking up a necklace for myself...

The best way to wrap up an evening is with a little bit of sweetness, and boy did I get it!... Oh my god, I tasted heaven in 4 bites!  I got 2 of the most amazing macaroons!  I got a Red Velvet and an Earl Grey flavored cookie delight, and can I just tell you they were Uh-mazing!!! Seriously addictive and thankfully I only bought 2.  They offered a good 10 or so varieties there, but there are a ton on their site, so I highly recommend checking out the Macaron Parlour!

We met up with a few other couples for just a great night of food and fun, and the mission was accomplished!  I heard on a normal daily basis Dekalb Market is a quieter and less crowded experience, so you can shop leisurely without the extra thousand people poking around with you, but I left happy nonetheless!
