The annual NYC Wine and Food Festival is finally here, taking place from October 15th through the 18th.

OpenMarketNYC is a weekend-long celebration highlighting the district’s diversity of businesses with free events, exclusive tours, public art, in-store activities, installations and shopping discounts.  Enjoy the savings for the latest in fashion/design, arts/culture, technology, and food/hospitality. With this festival, the Meatpacking District is an open market for all to enjoy.

Every neighborhood is starting to create their own festival.  I love the fact that they have included art, culture, wellness, guided tours, and not-overpriced-celebrity-chef meals like some of the others – it appears to be more inclusive.  If it can maintain this model, it will be a great addition to the NYC festival scene.Read More
