Get Mitzy's Macarons This Weekend at the Brooklyn Flea Market

lil macaron babies
Macarons, yay!

Mitzy has been generously donating delicious macarons and other goodies to me and the Serious Eats office for the past few months as her "macaron taste testers." (Adam refers to her as our macaron dealer.) What a hard task she had given us. Oh yes.

Back in September when I wrote about why her macarons are the best in the city you couldn't actually buy them, but New Yorkers can finally get them this Sunday at the Brooklyn Flea Market! Mitzy (and helper Kathy) will be at the market, which runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., selling and giving out free samples. I plan on stopping by too. Support Mitzy; this city needs better macarons and she's one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet.

Kaare: I don't know why but your comment sounded so sweet and convincing. Heehee.


ila: Hopefully there will be more ways to get her macarons by then!

wineguy: Saliva = appropriate reaction.

best macarons I ever had were from Lindt & Spruengli in central Zurich - good enough to smuggle small suitcases full like some kind of delicious confectionary contraband.

To best enjoy a good macaron, eat for dessert after a hamburger. That way, you get to pretend that you have grown into a giant between courses...

Just by the look of these cookies I totally believe you. UFOs of yumminess! What does it take to be a macaron tester? I'd love to be abducted ;)

Jane: I make frequent use of the Homer Drool sound.

Julie: It's a yuppie flea market, yay!!

The Inscrutable Chicken: Zurich..HERE I COME!

G: Set up a blog and advertise that you've eaten way too many Pierre Herme macarons. Voila, you're hired.

Danny: I think they'll be $2.50, or around there. Sounds kind of high but in my knowledge of the macaron market, it's fairly priced. ;)

Robyn, thank you sooooo much for the shout out! I'll see you and everyone who are macaron lovers there. I hope all of you will enjoy my macarons as much as I enjoy making them :-)

Those look sooooo good! At first glance, I thought they were some kind of sliders, but macarons are even better. I won't be able to get to Brooklyn Flea this weekend. Is Mitzy going to be a regular, so I can get my macaron fix?

annulla: I think Mitzy is planning to be a regular. We'll see how opening weekend goes!

penny: Another friend showed it to me but...I haven't bought it yet! I ought to. It's so frighteningly cute. Thanks for thinking of me. ;)

G: HAHAHA, good title. :)

Macarons at a Flea Market? Cool! wish we could get good Macarons in my town, if i want good ones i either have to go to London 4 hrs away or make them myself.

I mentioned you and your macaron filled entries to a friend who had spent a year studying in France without ever trying one. Next time I saw her, she was a macaron addict and brought me my first ever taste of a macaron. What goes around comes around..? Ehn. Kinda.
