The Mad. Sq. Mark’t, in all its abbreviated glory, returned to Madison Square Park this past Saturday for the second year in a row. It will run through Saturday, October 23.
Like other holiday markets organized by the same company, including the Union Square and Columbus Circle markets, it features more than 60 merchants selling such crafty items as knits, pottery, and jewelry. The Food Square at Worth Square has vendors peddling “multi-ethnic” fare, a/k/a: pizza from Roberta’s, Malaysian barbecue from Fattys Crab and ‘Cue, pretzels from Sigmund Pretzel Shop, and falafel from ilili, among others.
