NEW Urban Market Days Flea Market In Harlem
Urban Market Days is a new flea market in southeast Harlem, where the commuter rail tracks emerge from the Park Avenue tunnel running north from Grand Central, located just where Metro North passes over 116th Street.
Urban Market Days is and extension of the Urban Garden Center, NYC’s largest open-air greenhouse and full service garden shop. The Urban Garden Center specializes in helping NYers build, grow, and maintain vibrant green spaces in and around their homes. The market is on a 10,000 square foot lot under the train tracks between the north- and south-bound lanes of Park Avenue.The location provides access to a huge number of shoppers and is closed to several mass transit lines. It has 65 spaces, costing $60 per day to rent. It is open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through Christmas, and maybe after.
The market is open to vendors of new and used merchandise, including established sellers, or just people looking to supplement their income. Organizers seek to “attract all types of exhibitors, both new and used, antique, green, vintage, music, jewelry, clothing, art, hand crafts, thrift items, estate sale goods, collectibles, memorabilia, and prepared and packaged food…we’re trying to go back to the roots of the area with an open air market.” They plan to focus on green, recycled, re-purposed, artistic, antique….estate sale or vintage goods. They may even explore community based services.
They offer “swap-meets”, and green events, like the “paint swap” where one can can trade a left over 1/2 a can of latex paint from the bathroom paint job for 1/2 a can of another color.
A web site is under construction but the Facebook site is up now.
A vendor application is currently available.
