FAD Market: Governors Island at Governors Island

FAD Market: Governors Island

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

FAD Market is excited to return to Governors Island for a monthly residency on the third weekend of each month from May through October. Taking place along the tree-lined King Ave, nestled between historic early 20th century buildings, this idyllic market setting is steps away from Yankee Pier, where the Brooklyn ferries dock, and Liggett Terrace, where the food trucks rally. Featuring a rotating lineup of over 30 of the city's emerging makers, designers, artists, and small businesses, the markets will feature handcrafted jewelry, art, apparel, bath and body care, tableware, home furnishings, artisanal packaged food, and more. Come for the one-of-a-kind goods, stay for a cocktail and a game of p tanque (a lawn throwing game similar to bocce and boules) with our neighbors, Carreau Club. Take a short ferry ride and make a day of it!
