Shopper’s Diary: Makers Market in New York

June 21, 2009 5:06 AM

BY Francesca Connolly

Makers Market is a new open-air market featuring a broad range of products for the home, curated by American Craft, the Noguchi Museum, and R 20th Century. Atlas Industries, Hivemindesign, and Platform are just some of the makers that will be selling one-offs and exclusively produced work. "Long Island City’s rich history of industry and manufacturing, and its current status as one of the city’s most remarkable cultural communities, will provide the perfect context for the Makers Market, which focuses on design excellence, technical expertise, and quality of materials."
