About this project

Homemade: brooklyn is a showcase for all locally made products and performers. It is a tightly curated collection of artists, designers, chefs, and enthusiasts from around the borough. I wanted to promote the diverse creativity that is happening in Brooklyn today and give a platform for new and established businesses.

By funding the third event (June 25 - 27) through kick starter I am hoping to offset the vendor fees for all those involved and also bring this concept back to the community and those that were originally intended to be involved. There are so many talented people out there that need a place to showcase their work and this event is meant to promote through interactions and public involvement.

The June event at Metropolitan Green in Williamsburg is quickly filling up with vendors and I am busy booking events for each day. These type of events will include both food vendors and performers from art to music expressing everything that the creative community has to offer.

Friday - Opening of the Event

Saturday - Day of "Happenings"
Interactions including Musical performances, Miniatures Rhino's Lettering Writing Service, and Films from local directors and bands

Sunday - Workshops
Off the Mat - at home Bath and Body products
Brooklyn Brainery - TBD workshop

This event has had two huge features in Time out New York, NBC's blog The Thread, New York's The Cut, Paper Magazines' blog, Daily Candy, and many others. We have an extremely active facebook page, twitter account, and blog we are also launching a full website shortly.
