Get ready, New York. Later this month, Food52 is transforming our NYC HQ and gorgeous Test Kitchen over in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan into a three-day spring pop-up market: our Big Spring Spruce-Up. Scroll down for more details on the events happening at the market—but first, jot down the essentials:


Friday, April 21 to Sunday, April 23


Food52 HQ and Test Kitchen, 122 West 26th St, 8th Floor


11 AM to 6 PM, daily.


You bet.


That’d be nice. Right here.

We’re basically bringing our website to life, much like we did with our Holiday Market a few months back. We’ll be featuring our newest and niftiest cleaning tools, cookware, time-saving gadgets, and tabletop decor, all in celebration of this bright, breezy season we call spring. (Psssst! Get a sneak peek of what’ll be on display, here.)

But that’s not all, baby. We’ll also be hosting events throughout the weekend to help ease you into spring. Everything you need to know is right here (and keep checking back because we might be adding a few more surprises!):
