About The Space
Fulton Stall Market is a marketplace for local foods connecting farmers and producers with the growing Lower Manhattan community. Located in the historic district where the City’s markets began in the 1700’s, it’s a first step toward development of a year-round indoor public market for NYC featuring local products and educational programming celebrating the Seaport District’s vibrant market history.

NYC Honey Week is a weeklong, citywide festival celebrating the honeybee. Honey Week 2015 merges the educational, the entertaining, and the downright delicious. From beekeeping classes to honey-themed dinners, apiary tours to honey tastings, cooking classes to kids’ workshops, the festival flits from neighborhood to neighborhood, drawing deep from apicultural traditions and New York City’s cultural traditions alike. The week culminates in the fourth annual daylong Honey Fest at Rockaway Boardwalk on Saturday, September 12, a free, family-friendly extravaganza featuring art, food, music, kids’ arts and crafts, the Bee Marketplace, and, of course, honey galore!
