from brooklyn: prospect park love

Post image for from brooklyn: prospect park love

Brooklyn is such a perfect little hub of culture and beauty. Most people come to New York to see Manhattan, but we think that Brooklyn is where NY’s true beauty is. All of the Free People Brooklyn girls live and work in Brooklyn! We want to take you on a little tour of one of our neighborhood’s prized possessions, Prospect Park!

Prospect Park 3

Prospect Park is 585 acres of gorgeous grass, pond, trees, and sights that touches a handful of neighborhoods that surround it. Summer is when Prospect Park shines; Brooklynites all around the borough come to relax and plant their toes in the grass and enjoy all the events the park hosts.

The Green Market is one of my favorite parts of spring/summer in Prospect Park. It’s a beautiful farmers market that brings produce, dairy, meats and treats from upstate to Grand Army Plaza

Grand Army

Famers Market

The Green market offers vast varieties of vendors! Anything you can imagine you’ll find at the Green Market; fruits, fish, product, meats, herbs, plants, and delicious treats!

Strawberries

String Beans

Zucchini

Flower Tent

If you are in New York and are looking for a way to treat yourself to amazing foods, stop by the Green Market!

And, I took a different path on my way to the Brooklyn Free People after leaving the Green Market  and I came across the most beautiful mosaic house around the corner from our store. It pays off taking a different route every once and awhile :)

That park looks so much fun to have a picnic with your friends, or read a good summer novel on a warm day. I will definitely be stopping by there while in NY this summer! Also, that mosaic house is the coolest thing ever! xoxo

I kick myself all the time for living just outside the city and never having been to Brooklyn! Definitely on my agenda this summer, especially the farmer’s market!
