Last year, Basilica Farm & Flea doubled its attendance, jumping up to 7,000 visitors to Basilica Hudson over Thanksgiving weekend for the urban-chic-meets-new-rural extravaganza. Created as an alternative to the big box stores "Black Friday" abominations, the annual market brings together a collection of products presented by a diverse group of about 125 regional makers, farmers, chefs, and vintage collectors—think of it as a downhome flea market curated by a hipster junta—and we mean that in the best possible way. This year, in collaboration with craft curators Hudson River Exchange, Farm & Flea promises another stellar shopping be-in, The fair kicks off with shopping from 2pm to 5pm on November 27, followed by a "Black Friday Soiree" complete with cocktails from 5pm to 9pm, and then picks back up the next morning with two more days of shopping, music, craft demos, and food and drink.
