Launching This Weekend: Met Green Markets

A new kind of boutique market will launch in Metropolitan Green — a LEED registered green building designed by architect and designer Mark Helder to house pop-up shops — Met Green Markets.

Starting this weekend and continuing through June, designers, crafters, food-makers and vintage sellers will offer their wares in Metropolitan Green's space, which has 13-foot ceilings, tall display windows and a rear deck and garden. The markets will change weekly and will culminate in Homemade: Brooklyn, a showcase for all locally made products and performers.

Met Green Markets will be held May 28 to 31, June 4 to 6, June 11 to 13 and June 18 to 20. Homemade: Brooklyn will be from June 25 to 27. Metropolitan Green is at 439 Metropolitan Ave., between Meeker and North Fifth streets in Williamsburg.
