We're ready to deck ourselves out in Conrad Men's goods and go hiking. Also make sure to check out their meditation cushions!

At Artists & Eats, We're Better Together (It Takes Two)!

In the spirit of the Maker Culture that inspires our business and community, we embrace entrepreneurs of all types and disciplines at our markets – which is why we’re dedicating seven weekends in January, February and March to featuring the most innovative food entrepreneurs in NYC. 


It Takes Two to tango – especially when it comes to the latest and greatest food trends. Because chocolate wouldn’t be the same without peanut butter, or bacon without eggs, or cheese without crackers... you get the picture. This category brings the best of the best together for some all-star collabs that are sure to delight, in addition to crowd favorite combo treats (peanut butter cups FTW). Here's a sample of who'll be joining us this weekend:

Sweet Treats + Visual Pleasure in Brooklyn

  • Delicate, sweet, and mysterious: three adjectives that describe Kate Koel's gorgeously tantalizing jewelry and probably some aspect of your love life. 
  • Imagine sitting at dinner with your sweetie: you're both dressed to the 9's, chic and oh-so-Brooklyn. Suddenly, you notice – that subtle dotted pattern on their tie? It's actually tiny little hearts. And then your heart melts because that's the cutest thing ever. This moment brought to you by Curated Basics

If you haven't heard yet – we're doing an art show in Brooklyn! Want to get something truly special to have and to hold for the rest of forever? Come by the market or contact stephanie@artistsandfleas.com for more information.

Indulge Yourself + Bae at Chelsea Market
