If you’re surfing through Facebook daily like I am, you can find some deals. I just came across this deal/coupon shown below by Urban Garden Center located at 116th and Park Avenue. If you like/follow them on twitter, Facebook, or tumblr, you can receive a 15 percent discount. They are giving out this coupon through their social networks as a way of saying “thanks” to those who interact with them. Not a bad way to say “thank you.” Check out Urban Garden Center on Facebook!
In the photo above, that’s what East Harlem’s La Marqueta looked like a few decades back. The marketplace, located at East 115th Street and Park Avenue, started back in the 1950′s, grew to more than 400 vendors and suffered its own down period. That was then. Now the East Harlem market is having its own rebirth and they’re giving the public an opportunity to see it in an Open House on February 2! All the details are listed below.
Also, watch what vendors are in place at La Marqueta in this news feature on NY1. See you at La Marqueta!
