The trailblazing Harlem Night Market is back in East Harlem for the next three weekends.
The indoor festival highlighting local businesses, which first launched in 2019, is returning to the historic La Marqueta Public Market under the Park Avenue train tracks on Saturday, December 2nd, 9th and 16th from 4pm to 8pm.
The heart of the event is in the block-long La Placita between 115th and 116th Streets, divided up in sections featuring Makers, Savory Foods and Sweet Treats, plus a dance floor—DJs Stormin' Norman, Ted Smooth and Uptown Vinyl Supreme are supplying the beats.
Look for vendors such as Black Rican Vegan, Cafe Ollin, the Coquito Lady and Harlem Hoopz, to name just a few of the 50-plus small businesses (most of them local). And don't miss taking a selfie at the 360-degree photo booth.
You can also cross the street to the historic La Marqueta between 114th and 115th Streets and check out what's new at the year-round booths, including Cocotazo, Lizzy's Treats, Amuse Bouche and Taller Carmen Ayala.
The Open Street at 115th Street is where you'll find the Grandscale Art Market, featuring merch from the artists who created this year's murals along E 125th Street.
There you can hitch a free trolley to the recently-relocated Urban Garden Center on E 111th Street and Park Avenue, which is hosting a Winter Wonderland complete with Santa visits and photos (3pm-5pm), craft workshops and free hot cocoa.
