Calling All Thrifters: Our Brimfield Lawn Party is Live!

September  6, 2016

It's here, it's here! After months of planning (mainly by our ace Events Director Kate Kudish) and a Labor Day weekend spent building the layout our Art Director Alexis Anthony dreamed up, the Food52 Lawn Party at Brimfield is live. We opened our doors at 6 A.M. this morning, with picnic tables and inspirational lighting fixtures, a tricked-out vintage camper you'll want to move right into, good tunes belting, and a whole market of treasures we'll ship right to your door for free.

Inside the vintage camper—oh yes we did.

We're open all week long at sites 12, 13, and 14 in the Central Park field—stop by to see us (or to participate in one of our workshops) any day this week! (And search for anything you need at Brimfield using the Flea Finder app—they're dear friends of ours!)

Here are a few snapshots from setting up that should get you excited to see it all in person.

The market!
IKEA shelves don't build themselves (hi Sarah! hi Amanda!).
Water bottles: in storage and on display (We're giving them away for free!).
Right after we finished making the curtains and cushions. Do you like them?
Shelves of shoppables!
This morning we opened up this tarp and let the light stream in.
Walking along Route 20 from west to east, this is how you'll spot us! (That's the vintage camper parked in the rear.)

Need we say more? Come stop by and see our team at the Brimfield flea anytime this week. We're absurdly excited about it and hope you are, too.
