’Tis the season, at long last, for all your favorite food markets: As of the past few weeks, Hester Street Fair, Smorgasburg, New Amsterdam Market are all up and running. Now comes word that Mad Sq Eats, with its twenty vendors including Red Hook Lobster Pound, Arancini Bros, and Asiadog, will kick of next Friday in Madison Square Park and go for a month. If Rambo’s more your scene, DeKalb Market has launched something called Twilight Market, fun times at night. It’s the perfect chance to try Robicelli’s new brownie gelato sandwiches, made with Il Laboratorio del Gelato, in flavors like ricotta gelato with blackberry-Cabernet compote, and malted milk balls with chocolate ice cream and malted fudge sauce.
