Weekend Excursion: Eat a Peoples Popsicle (Time Is Running Out)

Earlier this summer, the Peoples Popsicle booth was a huge hit at the New Amsterdam Market (we were there). But unlike the other vendors, this was a thrown-together brainchild of a few friends, one of which was Nathalie Jordi, a former Serious Eats blogger. Somehow the gang was so organized they not only made delicious, refreshing blends from organic fruits and herbs, but on Peoples Popsicle-logoed sticks no less. They even had matching shirts. Though they couldn't promise a future—one friend had to get back to London—it was obvious the people loved popsicles and wanted more. Peoples Popsicle has since arranged a deal with Brooklyn Flea, but this weekend might be their last. The popsicle gods must retire for the fall soon.

The Brooklyn Flea is every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (rain or shine) at Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School in Fort Greene on Lafayette Avenue between Clermont and Vanderbilt Avenues. Anyone else up for celebrating the popsicle? What else is happening this weekend?
