Sunday: Brooklyn Makers Market
12 – 7 p.m. at Shwick, 175 Broadway, Williamsburg, FREE
If you miss the days before Shwick Market closed their permanent location in Bushwick, we’ve got good news for you. Shwick owners, a husband-wife duo, Christopher and Jinyen Carew, have been organizing markets all over Brooklyn. Their latest of huge markets takes place this weekend and features locally-made art, goods, food, bar and DJs. Sounds like a perfect event to wind down on a Sunday.
