What is MR Bazaar?!
"Canal Street Market is a retail market and food hall at the intersection of SoHo and Chinatown (265 Canal Street between Lafayette and Broadway) that supports local artisans who make stuff with their hands. At the back of the market, for the whole month of March, we’re going to have a solid 600 square feet to do whatever the F we want.
We’re calling it MR Bazaar because we wanted an excuse to hang plastic fruit everywhere.
During the week, you’ll be invited to come and use our wifi, or charge your phone, or just sit and hang out and read books (our library was curated by Housing Works) from a variety of authors dealing in female protagonists only. Female leads and no one else because we can!
On weekends (Fridays from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.), you can come and buy stuff — stuff like an LED lamp with boobs on it designed in partnership with Name Glo (all proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood), MR notecards and notepads, coffee mugs with boobs on them and stickers and hats and T-shirts. You can also try on shoes from the MR by Man Repeller collection and then order them in-shop from Net-a-Porter for same-day delivery if you want.
Once a week (sometimes more), we’ll be hosting small evening events (space is limited! Pls sign up!) in line with the monthly community events that we’ve been running since last June, so that we can talk about life and our guts and our shoes, etc."
