Crowded Stalls

The weather was perfect and folks came out in droves to the Flatbush Frolic Street Fair.  Hundreds stopped by to shop and buy from ARTery artisans.  For our opening day, we had a wonderful variety of items ranging from delicious Malaysian Food to African influenced necklaces; silver, gold and beaded jewelry; bags, clothing, shoes, baby clothes, chairs, paintings, collages, books and journals.

Some of our artists were busy creating artwork right there in their stalls and others busy interacting with the steady flow of customers stopping by throughout the day.

The ARTery also did its part to help with the elections!  The Board of Elections registered 58 people, received 83 poll worker applications and conducted demonstrations on how to use the new voting booths, which are also designed to make it easy for blind and handicapped people to vote!

Registering Voters and Poll Workers

Overall, our vendors got a chance to meet the neighborhood head on, find out what kind of things people are looking for and even get some special orders that will be fulfilled this Sunday at the ARTery Market.

Overall, we’d say it was a great success. Auria will be back with more Malaysian food, we’ll have a few new clothing and jewelry designers, and more artisanal food.  So stop each Sunday on Rugby Road next to the Farmers Market. Our vendors will vary each week, so pop by and check out our goods!
