Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood hosts a Community Market every Sunday on 5th Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets. Here, workers staff vendor booths, selling everything from pickles to baked goods. All of the food is made locally, if not in New York, in New Jersey and Connecticut.
On a recent Sunday, potential customers came out in full force to take advantage of one of the last markets. (The Winter Market starts on Dec. 12.) Some vendors greeted customers warmly, indicating familiarity. Adults and children alike eagerly sampled the wares and wandered around, visiting the vendors.
