Mission & History
Grand Bazaar NYC has two wonderful missions:
1.) To create the market of New York City that reflects the city’s originality and diversity. A place to discover and shop from talented emerging artisans and reputable independent dealers showcasing one-of-a-kind, rare and limited-edition goods.
We’ve created much needed affordable retail space with a positive and vibrant shopping environment for the best independent vintage/antique dealers and for incredibly talented emerging artists, designers, craft-makers, and artisanal food entrepreneurs to sell to New Yorkers and international visitors.
2.) The purpose of the market is to be the funding source for four public schools in the surrounding neighborhood. Profits from the market benefit over 2,000 school children by providing them with art enrichment programs, books, supplies, teaching assistants, sports and chess programs.

The Grand Bazaar NYC (originally GreenFlea Market) was launched by a group of parents as a simple yard sale to raise funds for their children’s schools in 1982, making it one of the oldest market in New York City.
Today we’re the only market which donates 100% of its profits to four public schools, funding arts, enrichment, and classroom essentials for over 4,000 children. The Parent Associations of P.S. 87, The Computer School, P.S. 334 Anderson School and M.S. 247 Dual Language Middle School are the Grand Bazaar’s custodians.
In 2016 the market changed its name to “Grand Bazaar NYC” to better reflect its diverse offerings, and to set a new and exciting path forward.
Today, Grand Bazaar NYC is the largest weekly curated market in New York City. It’s open year-round, with over 43,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, and during peak season over 200 vendors set-up shop.
