We would like to thank Brooklyn Flea for generously hosting the NYC Bake Sale again this year. The Flea was the Bake Sale’s home for the past two years (2012 & 2013), as well as hosting the Bake Sale for Japan in 2011.
Brooklyn Flea has been a New York City fixture since 2008. With hundreds of vendors, there’s something for everyone - from vintage clothing to art to food.
From April through Thanksgiving, Brooklyn Flea is in Fort Greene on Saturdays and Williamsburg on Sundays. In that same span, they also operate Smorgasburg, two all-food markets in Williamsburg on Saturdays and DUMBO on Sundays. During winter months, you can find a combined Flea & Smorgasburg in Williamsburg (thru the end of March).
The NYC Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry will be May 3, 2014 from 10am to 5pm at the Fort Greene Flea, located at 176 Lafayette Ave. (between Clermont and Vanderbilt Aves.). Come by for delicious baked goods from NYC area bloggers & bakeries and support No Kid Hungry.

Thanks to all of our generous sponsors, bakers, volunteers, supporters, and donors, the NYC Food Blogger Bake Sale was a HUGE success! We were able to raise
$3400 (and counting!) $3,655.25 for Share Our Strength! And even better news is that because we were one of the top 3 food blogger bake sales, Domino Sugar has matched our funds making our grand total: $7,310.50!! You rock, NYC!
We appreciate every single person who stopped by our booth at the Brooklyn Flea this past Saturday and picked up a sweet treat! BIG thanks to the Flea for hosting us, Joe’s Crab Shack for sponsoring our awesome volunteer t-shirts, Whole Foods (Union Square) for providing reusable grocery bags for serious sweets lovers, and Fondu (check out their iPhone app!) for their kind donation to cover our advertising/printing needs!
We cannot forget all of the tasty treats & raffles donated by local bakeries & artisans:
Baked, Baked Ideas, Chef Ajith Saputhanthri, Chef Joseph Kenny and team at Framboise Patisserie, Danny Macaroons, Georgie Cakes, Ivy Bakery, Leckerlee, Liddabit Sweets, Lucky Penny Bakeshop, Macaron Parlour, Margaret Palca Bakes, Robicelli’s, Runner & Stone, Sarabeth’s, Sweet Revenge, Sweet & Simple, The Southern Pantry, With Love, From Brooklyn, Zugar Haus
Last, but certainly not least - please give a huge virtual round of applause to all of our blogger-bakers, and especially our day-of volunteers! Without them, we would not have had the delicious array of goodies as we did, nor would the day have ran as smoothly. It was truly a team effort.
Thank you, NYC for your kindness and support - together we will make No Kid Hungry a reality.
