A new night (or nite, for added intrigue) market is coming to Brooklyn's Grove Place, a spot so hip that organizers bet you've never even heard of it. Located near Hanover Place between Fulton and Livingston streets, Grove Place is usually just a sad, abandoned alley, but on Friday, it will be transformed into a swinging night spot filled with vendors, music and strings of nifty little lights that make even the most nefarious streets look festive and whimsical!
Vendors will include The Morris Truck, Hibachi Heaven, Rickshaw Dumplings, Spirited, Coolhaus, Lazy Looz, Ozma Autonomy, The Vanity Project, The Nomad Truck, WORN, Jwhite, Thanatos Candles & Beauty, Summer Mizera Vintage and Pachamamita Designs. Dance music from reggae to rap will spin throughout the night, causing you to shake your hips, slosh your Brooklyn beer and maybe drop your designer grilled cheese—possibly onto the foot of an attractive stranger? Anything can happen at Grove Alley Nite Market!
Grove Alley was once designated "a candidate for the worst street in Brooklyn,” but the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership has been working to change all that. The event is being organized by the same folks that put together Gowanus Nite Market, and more than 700 people have RSVP'd.
The market will last from 5 to 11 p.m., with music kicking off at 7 p.m. Wear sturdy shoes in case you step on a rat—it's an alley, after all.
