If you are a fan of food, consider visiting the "Super Duper Market", a 3 day pop-up superstore that pops up in Chelsea (410 West 16th Street) and features unique foodie vendors, retailers and general food fanatics from both East and West coast, all under one roof. A venture between Paper Magazine, Target and American Express, the raw space will basically be converted into a fully functioning grocery market with the types of artisinal food items you won't want to miss. Red Rooster and Spotted Pig will have products created especially for the market, and tasty treats from Salty Road (taffy) and S'More Bakery will be available. This is all about featuring progressive indie food entrepreneurs and fresh produce so it should be a fun event for all.
Most importantly, for kids Target is hosting FREE food workshops throughout the event during which Clare Crespo of the renowned show YummyFun will be teaching kids how to make all kinds of tasty concoctions from veggie animals to eyeball cupcakes. If you don't know about YummyFun, it's an adorable cooking show with a twist that's made quite a name for itself with full episodes available for sale on DVD. Check out YummyFun online.
Hours are as follows: Friday July 13th - 11am-4pm; Saturday July 14th 11am-6pm; Sunday July 15th 11am-4pm.
