FREE Cultural Escape: DanceAfrica Bazaar

This massive outdoor market with over 250 vendors began yesterday, continues today, and will wrap up tomorrow.   I’m not particularly interested in buying any of the wares (divestment folks, its the way of the future), however, culturally speaking, it could almost be  like a trip to Africa.   Since I haven’t been, it is impossible for me to speak definitively, but if my market experieces elsewhere have taught me anything  a lot of the stuff will be products of China, hocked by vendors as  “locally made – my brother is an artisan”.


The market is around Brooklyn Art Museum (BAM) @ Lafayette Ave and Ashland Pl
