Spring Soirée - North 3rd Street Market
Throughout the past couple of decades, Brooklyn has taken on the role of the boisterous borough: an epicenter for trend-setting fashion, unexpected artworks, and culinary innovation. North 3rd Street Market embodies the vibrant, dynamic, and welcoming energy of Brooklyn.
North 3rd Street Market, located in the quaint neighborhood of Williamsburg is the perfect spot to mix, mingle, and enjoy great food. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with warmness. The large space with concrete floors and high ceilings juxtaposed with vintage embellishments and couches creates a contemporary yet comfortable environment. The space also holds a small arcade including skee ball, basketball, other games, and decorated with a disco ball.
The highlight of the North 3rd Street Market is the wonderful collection of food vendors, each hand picked with extreme consideration. The market features both permanent and pop-up vendors. With fifteen different eateries there is a cuisines suited to everyone’s taste. Whether you’re a health nut seeking Acai bowls and lavender infused apple cider vinegar beverages, or pizza and coffee is more your speed, you will find what you're looking for at the North 3rd Street Market.
After sampling scrumptious bites from nearly all of the restaurants I can confidently claim that all of the food served at the North 3rd Market is of exceptionally high quality. My personal favorites included VISH and Gracie Baked. VISH is a vegetarian mediterranean style restaurant. Eliyahoo, the man behind VISH, has mastered the art of hummus making. Eliyahoo’s team currently serves their hummus in 60 restaurants throughout Israel; thankfully, I only have to cross the East River and not the Atlantic ocean to enjoy this exceptional hummus. The freshly baked pita serves as the perfect vehicle to transport this delish hummus to your mouth. A top of the hummus you have an option to add chickpeas, Egyptian beans, shakshuka, eggplant, mushrooms, soy, or vegan shawarma. Gracie Baked is a company serving fun 90s-themed sweet treats. Her delectable desserts contain wonderfully surprising flavor combinations. After almost two hours of eating, I left extremely satisfied and already planning my next visit.
The North 3rd Market is the perfect place to go in and grab a quick bite, or spend hours with friends, eating, drinking, and playing skee ball.
