Girl Powered Food and Design Market Debuts

Girl Powered Food and Design Market Debuts

Malca BK will be a vendor at the market

There’s a new pop-up market coming to Brooklyn- and before you moan “another one?”- hold on! This one has a totally different mojo and has some great people behind it.

The women who created Curious Jane, a summer camp and after-school program for girls focused on design and creativity, have decided to expand their program. They took their mission of empowering girls and poured it into a market focused on original designs and fabulous food from talented local women. It’s called the Gowanus Girls Indie Design + Food Mart. Event the market’s name makes me think of a great girl band with moxie.

METALSgirl will be selling their metal jewelry

The gals at Curious Jane found the perfect spot for their market and are running it pop-up style two weekends in October with more markets coming in spring. They will have craft activities to keep your kids busy while you shop.

They even have a fundraising element to give back to the revitalization of the areas surrounding the Gowanus Canal (a designated Superfund site).
