Weekend Brunch, Puppies, and a Flea Market

Annex Markets

A Mild January Makes for a Great Weekend at the Flea

With temperatures more like March than January, the Hell's Kitchen Flea is expecting a busy weekend.  Our vintage vinyl, clothing, and antique vendors will be joined by up-and-coming jewelry designers from all over the city.  Hope you can join us for a weekend when we've been assured the weather will be perfect for an outdoor shopping experience! 


Make an Outing of It by Adding Brunch or Breakfast at One of Hell's Kitchen's Finest!

Brunch is one of the best indulgences New York has to offer, but the recipe for a perfect weekend is planning brunch around a shopping expedition!  Neighborhood restaurants famous for their breakfast and bunch let our shoppers make their visits to the flea even more memorable by adding a great meal to the mix.  If you're walking from points east of the HKFM, you'll find a wonderful Italian breakfast on Sundays starting at 8 at Non Solo Piada at 302 W 37th St, just a minute from the market.  And if you're coming from the west, Friedman's at 450 10th Ave (at 35th) is a favorite for brunch served all day, from 8 -4, on both Saturday and Sunday.  With gluten-free pancakes and specialty bellinis, Friedman's has earned its reputation as one of Hell's Kitchen's best spots for healthy comfort food.  And for those who want to hone in directly on the market at 39th and NInth Avenue, there's HK, the Hell's Kitchen landmark where you can get a fabulous brunch all day just steps from some of the market's most famous jewelry designers.  C'mon!  Make a day of it! Visit Hell's Kitchen for a little shopping and a great brunch too!


Mark Your Calendars! Pet Adoption Day is Coming in February

Don't forget - On Saturday, February 25th the Hell's Kitchen Flea will host a mobile adoption event with New York's Animal Care Centers. You can meet NY's finest pets, already pre-screened, starting at noon. Stop by and see if any one of them might be willing to adopt you, and change your life forever!

Memorial and Exhibition for Judy Negron Set for January 26

And finally, we reported with great sadness in early December the passing of a great local artist, friend to the Hell's Kitchen Flea and Hell's Kitchen Foundation grant winner Judy Negron.

This February! Pet Adoption Event with Animal Care & Control New York!

Annex Markets

With a balmy forecast (for mid-January), we're looking forward to another great weekend at the Hell's Kitchen Flea! We're thrilled with our great review in the Flea Market Zone, and particularly with the headline: There's New Life at the Hell's Kitchen Flea. We couldn't agree more! With dozens of new vendors with antiques, collectibles, clothes, and jewelry from some of the most exciting young designers in New York, we feel revitalized indeed!

One great source or revitalization at the market--which will continue in the New Year--is a Calendar of Events featuring special guests to bring even more shoppers into Hell's Kitchen. The first big event of the year will be a Mobile Adoption Event with Animal Care and Control New York, set for February 25, from noon to five. We will keep you posted on pets ACC will be bringing so you can be sure to stop by and see if a lucky dog or cat might consider adopting you. Our pet events have been popular so we are committed to holding adoption days throughout 2017, but we would also love to hear from you about other events you might like see at the flea. Send us your great ideas! And see you at the Flea!

Annex Markets

We're starting a brand new year at Hell's Kitchen Flea Market with a fairly good forecast for early January -- at this writing, there's no snow in the forecast for this weekend and we're expecting a nice day for shopping.

We'll start the new year off with lots of great vendors and plans for great community events too. We've been listening to your comments at the market and on social media, and we've had a great response to pet adoption days, so expect some special events with some of New York's most amazing animals in 2017.  And of course, we have continued to welcome new vendors (you can now sign up online here) whose treasures bring in more shoppers from around Manhattan and around the world every week.  Start the year out right with a trip to flea! Here's to a happy, healthy 2017--with lots of treasure hunting!

Revisit a Year of Memories at the Hell's Kitchen Flea

Annex Markets

unspecified.jpg

We'll be open bright and early on Saturday morning and hope to see you at the Hell's Kitchen Flea for the last market of 2016,  celebrating the conclusion of a great year marked by more vendors, more shoppers, and more live events than at any time in recent memory. 

This year we launched a series of exciting events to make the market experience even more special for vendors and shoppers alike. In early fall, the market welcomed the famed printmakers of Big Ink, who brought a dozen nationally known printmakers to Hell's Kitchen to demonstrate their unique art on one of the art world's biggest printing presses. 

Woodcut+Being+Carved.jpg

On Halloween weekend, the world famous Maniac Pumpkin Carvers provided an unforgettable demonstration, drawing a large crowd as they transformed a simple pumpkin into a stunning likeness of the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market devil before our eyes.

Visitors to the market were also fascinated by the mosaic-making demonstration of local artist Judy Negron, whose work was known to art lovers locally and around the world. Later in the year, the Hell's Kitchen community was saddened to learn of Judy's passing and we will miss her.

With a dynamic new manager, the Hell's Kitchen Flea attracted dozens of new vendors and scores more shoppers from the New York area--as well as visitors from more than 30 countries. The market launched new vendor services and welcomed many unique new sellers from all over the world.  Shoppers discovered Turkish ceramics, Indian textiles, and Kenyan carving, in addition to the well-known, handcrafted jewelry and the leather jackets that have drawn crowds to the market for years. Treasure hunters have never found so many unexpected treasures as the flea had to offer this year. 

In 2017 we hope to bring you even more opportunities to enjoy a trip to Hell's Kitchen. Wishing everyone in the Hell's Kitchen Community a wonderful, healthy New Year! And in 2017, we hope to see you at the Flea!

We'll be open bright and early on Saturday morning and hope to see you at the Hell's Kitchen Flea for the last market of 2016,  celebrating the conclusion of a great year marked by more vendors, more shoppers, and more live events than at any time in recent memory.

Remembering Local Artist Judy Negron

Annex Markets

DSC_0208.JPG

The Hell's Kitchen community was deeply saddened  this week to learn of the passing of noted local artist and Hell's Kitchen Visual Arts Foundation grant winner Judy Negron. Judy, a mosaic artist, etcher, and painter, was a bright light in the local arts community.  

Judy exhibited her work locally, nationally and internationally. Some of her most notable international exhibitions included shows at la Main D'Or, Paris; Assisi, Italy; Cadaques, Spain, and the Museum of Modern Art in Wales. In the U.S., she had memorable showings at the NYU Gallery, Kathryn Markel Gallery, Prince Street Invitational, and The Jadite Gallery in Hell's Kitchen.  Her work is included in The Museum of Modern Art collection, the collection of Deepak Chopra, La Sirene restaurant, Taureau Restaurant, The Wine Escape, and many other private collections. A commissioned piece, Two Cats, can be seen on the facade of 447 West 44th Street. 

Most recently, her one-person show, "Umbrian Dogs and Other Tails" was on exhibition at The Jadite Gallery during the month of September. 

Judy was awarded a Hell's Kitchen Foundation Visual Arts Grant earlier this year. With her grant award, she said she planned to continue her work in mosaics, painting, and etchings and also to explore The Printmaking Workshop in Hell's Kitchen.  She delighted visitors to the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market this fall with a live demonstration of her mosaic-making.  

Judy will be truly missed. We extend our sincere condolences to her family and her many friends in the community.

Annex Markets

The Hell's Kitchen Flea Market Holiday Shopping Guide 2016:

The Gifting Season is Upon Us!

More than any time of year, the holiday season is the time when shoppers from around the city--and frequently from around the world--visit the Hell's Kitchen Flea in search of unique gifts for the best prices in Manhattan. This year we have more vendors and gift ideas then ever before! Where else on this island of astronomical prices can you find a leather jacket fit for a rocker or a vintage ensemble for the fashionista on your list for around fifty bucks?  What about classic skateboards for the little daredevils on our list?  It's all at the Hell's Kitchen Flea, of course.  

Last weekend we met shoppers who were already looking for holiday gifts for teachers.  And we had plenty of great ideas for them.  Let's start with jewelry designer Dawn Exton's original jewelry designs, including gorgeous one-of-kind pendants from her original industrial jewelry collection.  Dawn sells beautiful, affordable, and unique art pieces that might just be the perfect solution for those who want to show teachers just how much they are appreciated. 

We've met lots of shoppers looking for host and hostess gifts as holiday parties approach.  And we have great solutions at the flea. Even when you don't know your hostess' decor, there's a great variety of fun and functional gifts, like the lovely handmade Kenyan tote bags we found for a song or gorgeous handcrafted bowls from Turkey. And with so many music aficionados returning to their vinyl roots, a vintage record album is very often a perfect, highly personal, and much treasured gift, suitable for both playing and framing!

Tourists visiting the market often tell us they are seeking gifts for family and friends back home. What could be a better memento of New York than an original abstract painting of 42nd Street? 

No matter how daunting your gift list looks this holiday season, start at the Hell's Kitchen Flea and you'll find incredible gift ideas at wonderful prices. Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping!

Happy Thanksgiving from Hell's Kitchen Flea Market!

Annex Markets

Happy Thanksgiving! 

There's nothing better after a big dinner than a refreshing walk through Manhattan, so plan to visit us at the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market this weekend for a little post-holiday treasure hunting. 

Recent holiday gift surveys have found that teens and 'weens love nothing better than a good clothes haul. So if you've got some fashionistas on your shopping list, make sure to hit the flea before the holidays! We're the only place we know of in the metro area where you can score a fabulous vintage ensemble complete with gorgeous leather rocker jacket for under $100! 

And of course, remember that original jewelry designs are more affordable at the Hell's Kitchen Flea than anywhere else in New York!  Resident jewelry designers and artisans like Dawn Exton will be at the HKFM every weekend for your holiday shopping needs. For teacher gifts, souvenirs, and of course for all the special loves on you  holiday shopping list, a one-of-a-kind hand-crafted piece of jewelry is always a great choice! 

Thanks to everyone who made our dog adoption event such a barking great success!  All the dogs were adopted and we'll have more soon. New Yorkers, always known for their generosity of spirit, really came through for the Korean dog adoption group--and we're all so grateful. 

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope to see you at the Flea on the weekend!!!

Happy Halloween from Hell's Kitchen Flea! Pumpkin Carving & More!

Annex Markets

The Maniac Pumpkin Carvers will be visiting Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market. They will be at the market on Saturday the 29th of October starting at 11 AM. This is a great, family-friendly event, and as always, it's FREE. See you on Saturday!

It's a wonderful year when Halloween falls on a Monday! In New York City, that traditionally means New Yorkers set aside an entire weekend for enchanted revelry of all kinds. That means Hell's Kitchen Flea Market is where New Yorkers will kick off the weekend!

Please make sure to join us at 11AM on Saturday morning at the flea. There will be a demonstration of pumpkin carving by the Maniac Pumpkin Carvers. They are known worldwide for having perfected the art of pumpkin carving. Even if you can't make the demo, come visit us during the weekend to see these memorable sculptures!

Maniac Pumpkin Carvers was founded by Marc Evan (@marcmaniac) and Chris Soria (@chrissoria). They have been collaborating creatively for over 20 years.

Every year in high school, Marc and Chris spent weeks transforming a section of the school into a series of delightfully terrifying haunted houses. Then, while both studied at Parsons School of Design, the duo rekindled their love for pumpkin carving and decided to make a career out of it.

Maniac Pumpkin Carvers was formed with the mission of creating the best pumpkin artwork available. What started in a basement apartment has now grown to a full creative studio of talented artists and pumpkin carvers.

After experimenting and developing their own techniques, Marc and Chris soon began to push the boundaries of basic pumpkin carving. Word of mouth spread to the biggest names in New York, including the New York Yankees, Food Network, and Martha Stewart. Their art has even been displayed at The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, Yankee Stadium. Other appearances include Good Morning America, Rachael Ray, The Kitchen, The Chew, Wired, Popular Mechanics, Yahoo News, CNN, and more. They even have been the winners of Food Network's Halloween Wars.

Big Ink's Pop-Up Printing Press at Hell's Kitchen Flea!

Annex Markets

This weekend, renowned artists and printmakers from all over the country will take part in BIG INK’s large scale woodcut, printing demonstration. It will be located at the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market, from 10AM – 5PM on both Saturday and Sunday. The rain or shine event is an all-out extravaganza at the Flea Market. The Flea is located on West 39th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues.

“We are excited to show New Yorkers how this traditional art form is being practiced in new and exciting ways,” said BIG INK director Lyell Castonguay.  “We are essentially bringing the artist’s studio directly to the community.”

Thirteen highly skilled printmakers will travel from Manhattan, Brooklyn, and as far as Washington, D.C., Ohio, and Texas. They will contributing carved woodblocks to be printed on throughout the day. BIG INK's staff of volunteers will be there to see the production happen on the giant printing press.

Woodcutting is a printing process that involves carving an image onto a flat, wood surface. It is a very, very old type of artform. The carved wood areas that display “white” or highlights are cut away using a chisel. The top, original surface of the wood remains “black”.  This surface level of the wood is then covered by a paint roller with high quality ink. The wood is pressed onto paper, which transfers the ink. The final result is a lovely finished print.

P.S. Do not forget to mark your calendars! The Maniac Pumpkin Carvers will be with us next weekend at the Flea.  They are New York’s nationally recognized pumpkin sculptors! The carving will start at 11AM.

See you at the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market!

Big Ink will be debuting their mobile 48” x 96” printmaking press in NYC. View many print makers from Manhattan to Brooklyn and as far as Ohio and Texas. They will be printed throughout the day by BIG INK's staff of volunteers.

Big Ink organizes print related programming for museums, art festivals, as well as local and nationally recognized print studios. This event is sponsored by the Manhattan Graphics Center, a studio that provides an accessible environment for the learning and practice of fine art printmaking.

“We're excited to show New Yorkers how this traditional art form is being practiced in new and exciting ways,” said BIG INK director Lyell Castonguay. “We're essentially bringing the artists' studio directly to the community.”

Upcoming Events at Hell's Kitchen Flea Market

Annex Markets

Fall is here! Hell's Kitchen Flea Market has nearly doubled in size since the end of summer! In the past few weeks, we welcomed close to a dozen new vendors.

Last weekend, shoppers at the Hell's Kitchen Flea found new vendors like local artist David Pringle, who brought original art. He was selling hand-crafted wallpaper, handmade crystal finials, and an unforgettable feathered evening clutch. The clutch caught the eye of New York's premiere expert on flea market treasure and author of Markets of New York: Karen Seiger.  

As we gear up for fall events and the holiday season, shoppers from the neighborhood have joined treasure hunters from around the world. Skull rings, skateboards, and screen printed tees attracted one little shopper. Their treasure hunting was only interrupted long enough to greet Vincent the bulldog.

HKFM Oct 5 Newsletter Judy.JPG

Also, for first time ever, the HK Flea held an artist demonstration. Judy Negron is Hell's Kitchen's renowned mosaic artist and recent winner of a Hell's Kitchen Foundation Visual Arts grant. She gave a demonstration of her art last Sunday. This marked the first in our occasional series of events showcasing local artists.

Our vendors were out in force and Sunday was a particularly busy day. There were hand-painted shirts from our favorite Tibetan jewelry stall and skull rings that are just in time for Halloween.

We also met new vendor/local artist David Pringle. David’s table was popular with customers. He sold handmade glass finials and hand crafted wallpaper.

This included a demonstration from local mosaic artist Judy Negron who recently won a visual arts grant from The Hell's Kitchen Foundation. Judy showed her mosaic techniques to flea market customers on Sunday from 12-2PM.

In fact, bases for Judy’s sculptures were purchased from Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market. For example, the bases of the works “Fish out of Water, ($1600) and the head bust “She”, ($2000) were found at the flea market. The bases for “The Walkers” ($1800 for the set or $400 each) are also some examples.
