"Memorial Day weekend marks the return of the Fulton Stall Market, the only outdoor food market serving lower Manhattan's historic Seaport District.In its second year, the 2010 market features a hand-picked collection of locally produced seasonal fruits and vegetables, handmade cheeses, organic breads, cut flowers and potted plants, area roasted coffee, and New York state wines. Approximately a dozen vendors will occupy the 16 former fish stalls that line South Street between Fulton and Beekman Streets.
Located on South Street b/w Beekman & Fulton Street at the old Fulton Fish Market- Wednesdays and Sundays, noon - 6pm"
The Fulton Stall Market opened on Sunday which was also the kick-of of Bill's Sound Bites Lunchtime Series which will host free shows at the Seaport each Wednesday in June (from noon-2pm). The first band to play, after Bill's DJ set, was North Highlands...
"This Sunday during Memorial Day weekend North Highlands a Brooklyn quintet fronted on keys and lead vocals by Brenda Malvini, graced the stage. They played accessible and contagious music that is bouncy, poppy and dreamy. The folk instruments like the mandolin and violin were delightfully integrated into an orchestral mix of keys, drums and electric guitar. The drumming was especially awesome.
Brenda's voice has a smooth tonality with playful breathy aspects that are immediately endearing. When the band revs up in intensity her voice and mannerisms animate to engage the audience. North Highlands is a tight and spunky band that has lots of heart. I loved them." [OCM]
