What makes this curated market so unique is that it has both an outdoor and indoor section. So once you’ve perused all of the outside vendors, you still have more to explore inside! Vendors are selected on a weekly basis, contingent on the market’s weekly theme, quality and rarity of their products.
With so much variety, it’s no wonder the Grand Bazaar NYC is a fan-favorite market. It sees an annual foot traffic of 500,000 New Yorkers.
And if you’re having shoppers guilt, Grand Bazaar NYC will clear your conscious. The market was originally created to help support public schools on the Upper West Side, including: PS 87, The Computer School, PS 334, and M.S. M247 Dual Language Middle School. 100% of net profits from every vendor’s booth rental goes towards helping more than 2,000 public school children.
Once you’re shopping fatigued, fuel up at Grand Bazaar NYC’s full food court featuring a wide variety of independent food purveyers. Previously offered food items include bao, tanghulu, samosas, kimchi rice, cookies and more.
The next market will take place on Sunday, March 26th, and with a forecasted temperature reaching into the 60s, it’s the perfect weekend activity!
