If you were too busy, oh, say protesting police brutality on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, don’t worry — you’ve still got a couple more awesome opportunities to grab some gifts for the ones you love. In addition to the initial 10 holiday markets, and the ones we’ve added to the list here and there, two latecomers just came down the pike.
Diamond Holiday Bazaar
Sun., Dec. 14 from 3-7pm, The Diamond, 43 Franklin St., Greenpoint
Who wouldn’t want to do their Christmas shopping within easy reach of a shuffleboard table, a firepit and some killer beers? Let’s face it, you probably would’ve been at the Diamond anyway next Sunday, so it’s great news that they’re going to have cookies, mulled wine, and vendors including M. Carter (bags, t-shirts, hats), Brooklyn Beach (scarves, hair product, beach blankets), Analog Knitting, Heatonist (hot sauce), Comar Jewelry, and Linny Vintage. Plus, get your photo taken (by Danny Kim) with Santa and Jesus.
Holiday Fun For All
Sat., Dec 13 from noon-4pm, 695 Grand St., East Williamsburg
The Grand Street BID is transforming the former Gem store in East Williamsburg into a family-friendly fair, complete with local merchants, a social-media photobooth that’ll allow you to blast your ugly Christmas sweater to the world, a live puppet show by Playdate Puppets, an art-and-crafts workshop, and some holiday cookie decorating. Oh, and get your taken with Santa — but not Jesus.
